I don't have a way to calibrate my monitors yet and this pic looks great on my laptop screen but here on my desktop it looks way too yellow with a slight green tint. How does this look to you all? Thanks.

Yea...I think it's too green/yellow.
05/18/2007 11:42:21 AM · #3
Very green (not me... the images).

looks kinda like night vision.

Looks more green than yellow on my work monitor. Almost olive drab (ie military)

I'd say it's to the muddy side of yellow...kinda pea soup greenish.

Wow! You have touched on a serious issue I fight with on literally every image. My monitor calibrator, a Spyder, got lost months ago and now NOTHING is right on the monitors I have... all three of them... both CRT and LCD.

That is not to say that proper calibration will make an image look good on every monitor... it won't. Most monitors are uncalibrated. What it will do is give it the best opportunity to look decent on most monitors.

Until you get a hardware monitor calibration tool and use it every couple weeks or so you will never get color close enough to look decent on most monitors.

Btw... your image has a yellow color cast but no green on my LCD.

The only chance you have to get color right is to UNDERSTAND what the RGB numbers mean in the "Info" display and make your adjustments to them. I don't understand them well myself and suspect you don't either. That is why both of us need hardware monitor calibrators. :)

spyder2 express is under $100 US

you'd, more than likely, be better off with an uncalibrated CRT than an LCD. from my experience anyway...

yaeh, greenish yellow.
05/18/2007 11:30:40 PM · #17
How's this one look?

I agree about the yellow/green tinge. Just as a side note, when taking photos where you are re/moving clothing dont forget to re/move it in enough time to get rid of clothing marks created by bra straps and undie elastic and waistbands.

closer but still a little dark olive.

drop your saturation to the lowest part you can, that will make it b&w.

GREEN on my calibrated monitor. I think you can fix it though.

there is still a hint of color creeping in.
05/19/2007 10:37:12 AM · #23
It looks green on my monitor, but the base is yellow. Both of the examples have a yellow base that has been mixed with black making it be perceived as green. The first has more yellow saturation but they are both in the same color range.
05/19/2007 11:26:53 AM · #24
A bit green
05/19/2007 11:50:23 AM · #25
Yeah, it's still kind of olive. What are you going for?
