I am going crazy here!!!
I purchased an expensive Samsng Syncmaster SA550 27" LED and got the new Spyder4 Pro to calibrate the monitor... so far so good...
I calibrated the monitor with the suggested spyder settings at 6500K and 200 brightness... but at the end when the spyder indicates that the monitor's colour is only 90% of the RGB colourspace in comparison!!!
Where I really go mad is that if I convert an image in CS6 to sRGB for the web and view it on my monitor now, it looks fine and as processed in CS6, but the moment I upload it to the web the colors are clearly of with an almost yellow color cast!!!! All my other images which I uploaded to the web before (using another samsung LCD monitor and spyder3 pro) still looks great, but my new images are $%*^ to say the least!!
I used both an analog and a digital (hdmi) connection (and drivers) to the monitor from the computer, but no success!
What is really bothering me is that all images, new and old, looks 100% in CS5, LR4 and if I open it with windows picture viewer. BUT... in changing the color profile in CS6 the "bad" color will show for a split second (whilst the color profile changes to sRGB) and then the image will once again look 100% in CS6... but upload it to the web.... Aghhhhhh!!!!!!
CS6,LR4,the spyder4 pro, windows 7 x64,graphics card (Nvidia Geforce GTS 450) and monitor firmware all up to date...
Both CS6 and LR4 on camera RAW 7.1 and I even deleted my catalog and imported all images into LR4 with color space for external editing in LR4 and CS6 on Adobe1998 (even Prophoto does not work...)
NB: the spyder4 is brand new...
Is the monitor, the spyder4, or me? I am really going mad this side and any help will be appreciated!
Did you set the Color profile/ICC Profile for that Samsung in the Windows Color options?
What system are you using to preview the media online? If it's the same system make sure the Profile is set correctly in the Windows options and then see if the browser viewing changes. What happens if you view the media on a different device online?
