Need help with AdobeRGB U2711 monitor setup - Windows 7 & Photoshop CS6
Just wanted to close on this thread in case anyone searches through this in the future. It seems that all I needed was a reboot, as everything is working fine now, and with the U2711 monitor in AdobeRGB mode I am seeing additional colors that weren't displayed in the sRGB version of the same images.
- Monitor in AdobeRGB mode (on screen display buttons)
- Windows Control Panel Color Management set into AdobeRGB mode
- Photoshop Color Setting in North American Pre-Press 2 (this sets monitor to AdobeRGB)
- Image using AdobeRGB color space.
Interestingly it's not the exact colors I was expecting to see the biggest differences (blue/green) but rather the yellows, and leaves with a yellower hue of green, there's even some additional color displayed in pinks. With some test files I've seen some huge differences in "unnatural light blues" colors you might see in clothes, cars, perhaps even turquoise gems, but not so much in sky colors.
It's certainly interesting seeing what you never realized you were missing!
