I just calibrated my iMac with the Spyder5Pro. This sucks!

I used Spyder 3.

I calibrated my 27"5K iMac some time ago using a Spyder 3 gadget but had to reduce the daylight level in the room by half drawing the curtains. Even then I had to reduce the screen brightness as per the photo. Since then I have used the Mac calibrate by eye method - System Preferences > Displays > Colour

The Mac method seems to give very similar colours to the Spyder3 method to my eye. No doubt someone will say this is nonsense! Have sent images off for printing and am happy with the colours and overall brightness.

Used to do my own printing with an Epson printer but results were all over the place so gave up and outsource any printing now.

That is just my experience.
