Re: Monitor brightness and printing?

There are other parameters here, most notably ambient light; both intensity and temperature. It isn’t just the absolute monitor intensity, it is the intensity relative to the viewing light.

And, which you actually already allude to, there are limits to eye/brain adjustment. We see much less detail and color outside in moonlight than we do in daylight, no matter how long we spend outside under the stars. If our eyes/brain were to perfectly adjust, then we would see no difference between a bright sunny day and an overcast one – it would be sunshine and roses all the time.

It is because of this that I run more than one monitor profile, one at 140 cd/m² for editing and another at 80 cd/m² for proofing. If I were to only run one, it would probably be in the 100-120 cd/m² range.
