LCD calibration - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

Dear experts, I have a dual 1 Ghtz G4 processor, I'm on OS 10.3.3 and I'm using an apple 17" studio display, and I was wondering if there were any monitor calibration tips you guys might have to make sure it works with Photoshop 7.

    Default LCD calibration

    Dear experts,

    I have a dual 1 Ghtz G4 processor, I'm on OS 10.3.3 and I'm using an apple 17" studio display, and I was wondering if there were any monitor calibration tips you guys might have to make sure it works with Photoshop 7. I'd heard that because I have an LCD, there wasn't much I could do because the calibration options aren't as flexible as those of a CRT monitor. I went to "Displays" in the System Preferences panel, proceeded to go through the calibration procedure, and as I was going through it, wound up choosing the default settings that the computer suggested, and after I completed the procedure and saved the setting as "Apple Studio display Calibrated", my monitor wound up a little bit brighter. Was that a good thing or should I revert back to the "Apple Studio display" setting that I started off from? Any other ideas? I'd also heard that Adobe Gamma and the Colorsync calibrator aren't suited to LCDs. If so, how do you visually calibrate Photoshop 7 to work with the monitor?

    Thanks,

    this is a thread that may help.
    I've also found that Apple's default settings are pretty good out of the box.
    When calibarting you ought to set your white point to D65 (I know the 20" &23" default to that).
