Setting your COLOR PROFILE in Windows

Setting your COLOR PROFILE in Windows:

So what if you do not have a “color calibrator” to set your colors?
Often you can go to your computer monitors manufacturers web site and download the color profile for your monitor rather than using an entirely generic COLOR PROFILE.

The COLOR PROFILE is what Windows uses to set/adjust the colors you see.
In Windows you can find and change color profiles by right clicking on the desktop and choosing PROPERTIES:
In the DISPLAY PROPERTIES dialog box choose:
SETTINGS > ADVANCED > COLOR MANAGEMENT.

If color profile you downloaded does not show up, click ADD… and then add the profile and SET TO DEFAULT and then APPLY.
If color profile you downloaded does show up, click SET TO DEFAULT and then APPLY.

This is not as accurate as using a calibrator but can often make for much more accurate color.
