Does anyone have a good means of enriching colors on screen? I don't mean changing text colors but instead, I mean saturation of images and such? I do a lot of artwork onscreen and after some experience with a new iPad (never had one before! love it!), I come back to my desktop after an absence and the drabness of color and contrast on my desk is even more apparent. The colors on my iPad are deep, rich, intense, and the contrast is perfect, black really looks black rather than charcoal-y, as it tends to do on my desk. I looked into the color calibration section but none of that means diddly to me. I wish there were just a tab or button or two where I could slide, and change the intensity of color and also perk up the contrast. Need to get back to my onscreen art, but it would help my eyes if things could be "perked up"... Thanx

Windows 8.1 doesn't provide a lot of options for color.  You might be better off seeing what options your monitor has.  A iPod uses an active-matrix LCD panel.  You might be able to find a monitor capable of an active-matrix screen.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.


07/09/17 I have had a free account with Photobucket for over a decade which I've used to host images in my canned speeches.  A little over two weeks ago Photobucket changed the their Term of Service.  This resulted in those with a free account being required to upgrade to their most expensive account ($399. per year) in order to be able to post third party images hosted at their website.  All of my images have been restricted and or deleted.  I apologize for any inconvenience this situation may have caused.

I was going to suggest this yesterday, then realised I had mislaid it !  But I found it again today. Try this little utility from EIZO. It's an .EXE file so it doesn't install, you just download and run it. It works in conjunction with your on-screen menu controls as an aid to either check the set up on your monitor or to adjust it to settings you find more comfortable/realistic.




Oh yes, there is no gobbledy-gook involved at all - you just look at the various screens and see if you like them or not. If you like them, you move on to the next screen. If you don't like the balance or whatever on a screen you use the monitor controls to set it to your preference.
