Humor I shall make no bones about the fact that this request is purely filler material, but such threads have been a success in years past. Dear OSNews readers please furnish us with your wondrous and diverse desktop screenshots and machine specifications! Considering that I have used the same wallpaper and platform since 2006, there is no great insight that I can bring to the table. Also, whilst I'm here--OSNews Asks: How have mobile OSes changed your habits this year?

Just curious...do you do any profiling of your monitor (or printer), and how?


The ATI Catalyst Control Center offers color adjusting controls. We do not own a color adjusting hardware. To adjust the monitor my wife simply compares a photo taken at neutral lightning conditions with the original object. My wife typically uses a photo of her crayons to do this visual callibration.

We do not print photos ourself. So we have no need to callibrate a printer. BTW, how to color callibrate a simple black & white laser ?

My wife uses RawTherapee to manipulate raw as well as TIFF and even JPEG files. She tried RawStudio before, but prefers RawTherapee. One handy feature is the white balance using a white area on the photo. Just select a white area -- a part of a number plate, the white outer of an eye, a white flower, snow, ... -- and press the white balance button afterwards. Done.
