Any recommendations for free downloadable software to recalibrate my monitor please? :D

Am I missing the point here.....?

Surely you just hit the Auto button (or whatever its called on your machine) on the front?

Not quite, if you're trying to set a monitor up for say Pantone colour matching then you need to get a physical swatch and use that to compare colours - that way what you see really is what you get :)

Is that the sort of thing you're after Mike?

If you've got any of the Adobe apps like Photoshop then you should have a tool or option somewhere for Adobe Gamma - that should let you get things better I think?

Don't forget to set your monitor for RGB for daily use, and CMYK if you do alot of printing. :)

(i.e What you see is what you print)
