Keep in mind that the comment was that "looking at others' photos between the two laptops yield very little difference, however my own images look visibly different between the same 2 laptops"...

That is the fly in the ointment so to speak. If it was simply an issue that there are 2 different laptops, one calibrated and one not, and all images are different between those two laptops, then the solution is pretty obvious. However if the aforementioned statement is correct, then the cause is more difficult to solve, yes?

Maybe - but one issue is not knowing the content of the images and how they were produced. Because there are no examples of any (either the images that are good, or ones that are not good in terms of their appearance) it is not possible to start addressing the issue.

The pics on your site load up initially as desaturated, then gradually colour up, it's not people just clicking on the pics quickly then writing them off before they load properly? Even if it isn't, that was a feature I found annoying, really annoying, it was basically forcing me to wait for no reason other than being fancy for the sake of being fancy, I'd get rid of that if I was you.

Like I said previously, I have done this myself with basically no help whatsoever from web designers, because as said before, they charge too much or if you are clever enough to ask questions, you will find out a scam artist pretending to be a web designer, and also, you are bringing up something that is of nothing to do with the point of this thread

I believe we are at a standstill until there is a supplied ample where you see differences across your two laptops, coupled with somebody else's image that you don't see a difference between your two laptops. Without the samples, there is little help that can be offered, I fear.

Can't you just take a single arbitrary shot of some building/bushes or something to provide an example?

I'm referring to the published photo, you know as well as I, that it's not going to be possible to put photos on this site of published photo, so please don't try to blackmail me into doing so, it's not going to happen, if you want to think you are at a standstill in regards to the thread, please don't post anymore, I am happy that way

Well; you came here and asked for help.
Members of this forum wants to help you but it seems, that you don't want any help.
I was looking at your photos and to my eyes lots of them are overexposed with blown highlights with no details.

If some people can answer without posting photos, then if you don't like the idea of me not posting photos, because as stated, I cannot due to the photos being published that is all

And to my eyes, most of them are not overexposed, did you not read the the first post?

However, you can indeed shoot ANYTHING else around the house, yard, etc. and see if you can reproduce your final results, then you can share your files so we can check your settings.

For those of us with calibrated equipment, we can then compare the raw and resulting JPG you are creating, to tell you EXACTLY what is wrong vs just grasping at straws.

If you are serious about your business, and want better results, then why not try to help us help you?

Nobody is trying to "blackmail" you - you posted on this forum looking for help. I do not want to see your "published" image nor am I trying to take your property or get you in trouble. It is very simple - if you want help you are more likely to get it if you clearly articulate your problem and provide an example. If you cannot do this, for whatever reason, then it will be difficult to help you get to the bottom of the problem.

There is a history here, most likely this is a continuation of the issue? https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1445671

Rich, are you one of those angry photographers?
Perhaps your photos look fine to you because you have problems with your monitor?
Why are you so afraid to shoot arround the block and post the photo which seems problematic to you?

Ewww, I hope one is me, it will be the first time I was added to an ignore list for trying to help somebody in their "Please Help" thread! :D Usually the reason is due to a caffeine-induced careless comment during some sort of gear comparison, lol.

Easiest way to fix everything is to get a real calibration tool like a Color Munki, etc and calibrate all equipment together, including a printer if you have one. I tied all my laptops and printers together using mine. This has solved all of my issues where images look odd from one device to another. Without raw/JPG results showing the issue, coupled with the admission that one laptop isn't calibrated, there isn't much more to suggest.
