Re: Jessops in trouble - again

That's all there is to be envious of Watford. For years the town planners have been trying to make it 'The Slough of Hertfordshire'!

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

Hmm, I'll try later on my W10 machine.

I will say that calibrating the screen on my Linux laptop with DisplayCal and my Colormunki, has transformed the display. I've never bothered before, but now...

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

DisplayCal has been mentioned and I downloaded and installed it to see how it would work with my ColorMunki Photo. After installing the Argyl CMS the software ran, but didn't recognise my ColorMunki...

Re: Car modifications - is it or isn't it?

The warning notices on motorways are pretty much discredited and ignored, because they're rarely updated as soon as the need for a warning has long gone. There may be fog on a motorway and a warning...

Re: When

Re: Wet day in Llanelli

That looks much better. I don't know why the maker of the plate made the writing offset in the first place. It just looks weird.

Re: Wet day in Llanelli

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

I also have a Colormunki, but have never been able to calibrate a printer satisfactorily, in spite of refining the calibration with sample prints. It's something I need to get to the bottom of.

Re: Olympus Air A01
