I just got an X-rite i1 calibration device that I want to use on both my iMac and MacBook Pro. I used advanced mode to calibrate my MacBook Pro near a window to simulate lighting conditions I often work with, and afterwards the colors did not seem improved, on some comparisons I see no difference, though the brightness is much dimmer overall. When running a before and after test using the built in photos it is very noticeable. I have the ambient light option turned off because I can not keep the device connected all of the time.
1. How do you calibrate a laptop when you might be using it with different lighting conditions, varying from very low light to household lighting? The settings it is now configured at will likely make it not display nicely in very low light, etc.
2. Is there a way to know if I ran the calibration properly?
