Which calibration settings did you choose ?

I choose full calibration and setting like this tutorial video.


In particular, if you're using an inexpensive display and calibrating it to less than 6000K with a luminance of 120cd/m2 or less, it'll probably look yellowish.

A good starting point is -

  • WB: 6500K or D65
  • Luminance: 120-140cd/m2
  • Gamut: sRGB, aRGB, or P3 (depending on your display)
  • Contrast: native

The default calibration will be to 6500K, gamma 2.2. There's no gamut "setting" for calibration. The display calibration process measures uncalibrated color patches using the native gamut of the display. The 2017 Macbook Pro is a P3 gamut display, and that's what gets measured (and also what shows up in the gamut plot that the SpyderX software shows after the calibration is complete).
