After buying a few things recently i have noticed the colours on my screen dont seem to be very accurate. is there a program or something i can do to get my screen to be as accurate as it can be.

This may sound daft but i have bought a few things recently and been a bit disappointed as there not the colour i was expecting.

Thanks in advance

may not be your screen - could be the way photo was taken - especially if on ebay

also could be enhanced to look better - think flower plant catalogues!!
Thanks think i may have to sort the contrast out a bit.

Also think sometimes it may be the other users camera or photo program like you say. when i take photos they dont always come out quite like i think they should.

Thanks for the advice guys really appreciate it.
you will need to buy a colouromiter (spelling) and you put the sensor against your monitor and it will tell you if it is correct.
sorted my settings out i was on 16bit medium not 32 bit highest so hopefully solve the problem. that weblink definitely looked better so thanks.

Good excuse to buy something now.

Colour is a bit of an issue. Monitors, cameras, printers all generally come with skewed colours, it is possible to set them up accurately but you need a calibration device like bykergrove mentioned. And then none of them can display all the colours you can see, that's what all this wide gamut/###% of NTSC stuff is on some monitors.

If you just want a quick by eye adjustment then you could try the LCD test, it's mostly for showing up the defects in LCDs but it does offer some advice on calibration to get the best out of your screen.
