    An alternative set of calibration images to calibrate with: LCD monitor test images



    I generally use both, and as you will never get it exact.
    Specially if your monitor doesn't have 100% sRGB color gamut like my 4K BenQ does(my HP 27vx 1080p only has 72%), and you will always have to find the, best for you, acceptable compromise.
    I followed the 6 steps but they didn't make any difference... I have the default settings on my monitor (70 contrat/100 brightness) and I can't really find a good setting with nvidia... the monitor is either too bright or too dark and sometimes painful for my eyes..

    I have my settings set so:

    I use my GTX1080 on my 1080p monitor, and use Display pilot on my 4K monitor(which also, luckily saves the profile from the 1080p monitor). with display pilot, I have a day time setting for when the sun is out and shining through the window. and I have an Evening setting, for my rooms lighting when it's night or dismal outside. This really avoids eyestrain.

    The only way really is going back & forth between brightness(black level) & contrast(white level) repeatedly, as a small change to one, effects the other.
    It's very time consuming, but eventually it's worth it.

    I find it a PITA that monitor manufactures, don't include a backlight adjustment, like HDTV's have, and I need to set brightness and contrast for both day and evening It would make things a little easier, but even when dimming the back light, brightness would need to be adjusted, as it would effect the black levels(shadows and so on).

    Cliff, I don't suppose Display Pilot works with any monitor other than BenQ? The LCD Monitor Test Images setup you mentioned earlier is a bit out of date (last modified 18 May 2008) for my LG 27" 4K at 3840x2160. I can't seem to get good results using it.

    Those test images are still good, but ONLY for 1080p, no other size, not even 720p.
    For my 4K I downloaded Passmark's Monitor Test: PassMark MonitorTest - Test monitors and LCD flat panel screens

    Price:
    Free 30 day evaluation, then US$21.60
    You have 30 days to find the settings that suite you then.

    Thanks, Cliff. I'll give that a try.

    I have tried this a lot without satisfying results. Is there some professional hardware/software tools to get the best possible results? I have tried a colormunki smile and it didn't really make any difference to be honest.

    You need to understand what you are doing, a professional calibration is very different from what a consumer user might want.
    I use Windows calibration and the Lagom website as a check.

    Considering this is an entirely personal visual thing, you are going to get nowhere with text messages.

    I cannot use windows calibration because it doesn't stick with my games. P.S I have an option called super energy saving on my monitor, would this affect the picture quality in any way? I can't seem to find an option to disable it.

    I have been tweaking the settings in nvidia control panel for some time and Im slowly getting some proper settings, so far I landed on 55% brightness, 72% contrast, 1.85 gamma and 100% digital vibrance.
