hey guys, i just bought a new dell monitor this week and im having problem with all my pictures. with the old monitor i edited some of my pictures and it turn out fine. then come this new monitor, all my pictures look washed out. so now im starting to think that my old monitor might not be showing the right color.

My new monitor is a Dell 2408WFP and i uploaded 2 pictures. the first one was edited by the old monitor and the 2nd picture was edited by the new one. i also set my new monitor to sRGB in the monitor menu. but it seem like sRGB make everything look washed out. So i need your help!!

this is the old monitor EDITING by DPP

So which one look nicer? and hopefully i don't over saturated.

So i went back to the monitor menu and set it to custom (R,G,B) now it look normal. Now when i edited in Canon DPP it look normal in there but when i convert to JPG i get this weird greenish tint in my pitctures.

Top is better. Have you calibrated your display?


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

The LR2 doesn't look natural. It's over saturated for one thing.

I use a spyder2, but if your display is wide gamut you'd want the spyder3 or one of the others.

It's a wide gamut screen, so sRGB is a very bad choice for monitor profile. (Even worse then usual).
