Conclusion On Computer colors - It’s difficult to match the colors from one device to another device because due to the lack of initial callibration of monitors.
I am working for an exhibition for a gallery and I know that most of the galleries prefer to Macs computer for JPEG images. I too wanted to work on ky computer for such images but I was surprised as well as disappointed by knowing that my computer is not providing me the colors exactly similar to the original ones. What I can do to get the exactly same colors as Mac? Can I setup the monitor to work like the Macs?
This does not worth to compare one computer to the other or one monitor to the other only because they are not capable of providing similarity in colors. This does not depends on the manufacturer of the monitor or computer while the quality of monitor does matter to give accurate and sharp colors. While the difference in colors can also be seen if you are using two monitors in the same computer. Two monitors in the single system can also show you the difference of the colors surprisingly. It is hard to say whether which monitor is lacking the quality but it can be projected that both of them have some limitations.
You can fix the problem simply by calibrating both the monitors well but this only can not bring your satisfaction because by calibrating both of your computer’s monitor you can get the similarities of color in both those monitors but it’s not definite that you will get similar kind of colors in any other computer also. This will be possible only if you calibrate your monitor with the machine having standard setting of colors. Still the conditions can occur to frustate you. Such as you have a monitor with properly set accurate colors, but if the viewer watching your photos or images have the monitor with improper settings and getting differences in colors. This will make your limits that you can’t do anything at all.
I too was facing same problem with my two monitors connected with the same computer and overcome the problem by just calibrating both the monitors together.
