In reply to Gary-UK, Mar 4, 2013

Well I given up on the Spyder 3 Pro. It just doesn't produce faithful colours, whether set for 1.8 or 2.2 gamma. I've trusted my eyes and used Windows Colour Calibration. The result is possibly a bit bluer, but at least the colours, particularly green and yellows look a lot more natural.

An internet search reveals similar issues with other Spyder 3 Pro users.

Here's my calibrated version showing the result in Photoshop.

And to show what a marked difference there is, below is the before loading/after loading image from SPP (i.e. the same comparison that I started this thread with)

After Loading

The fully loaded image is actually slightly LESS saturated now. Much more faithful to the actual scene as my eye sees it.
