Default Re: Gamma correction in windows 7 (don't trust the built in test!)

No this is mainly for gaming and watching movies, and it's an LCD monitor using a DVI connection. I'll occasionally do picture editing but its very rare and mainly for graphics rather than photos. Just when I see something white, I like it to be really white rather than kinda white. This is past the point where you've adjusted the gamma.

Hard to explain what I am trying to do. Think in terms of how when you change the color temperature, you end up with a more orange looking white on warm, and a more blue looking white on cool. The neutral color looks a bit more green to me on the other hand. I want it to look white rather than green if you get what I am saying, and it is hard to establish a neutral color even if I adjust the RGB offsets in the service menu.
