How to calibrate monitor?

Hello members!

I frequently take, as well as edit and share digital photos on my home computer monitor. I hardly ever use other monitors, but just yesterday I used another one of our computers at home and was really surprised to see a huge difference in brightness and saturation of my own photos.

I'd like to view web photos as the original designers intended, and I don't want to over-edit my digital photos in Photoshop, either. Can the experts on the board explain to me how to accurateyl calibrate my CRT? Thanks very much for your help!

The only way to accurately calibrate a monitor is to use a coloriometer or similar device. A good source of information on this topic is http://www.drycreekphoto.com/Learn/m...alibration.htm . Personally, I use a MonocaOptix as my calibration tool. Others available include the Spyder2, Gretag, and there's a new one out called Huey. The same source I provided above has reviews of the various devices, although it is an older review and may not reflect the latest information.
