ColorSync Profile for Dell U2410 on MacBook Pro
Dell U2410 is a great monitor in 24 inches, with vivid color, convenient UI. When using it with my Macbook Pro, I found it too bright and the default color setting is not so good. I adjusted the color in comparison of MacBook Pro’s own LCD. And here is the Dell U2410 ColorSync Profile for MacBook Pro. Follow the steps below you may feel better with your U2410’s color.
- Download and unzip the file to /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays (change the unzipped filename if you want).
- Press the menu button on U2410 and change the settings to:
Brightness – 70
Contrast – 100
Color Settings – Input Color Format – RGB; Gamma – MAC; Mode Selection – Graphics; Preset Modes – Adobe RGB
Display Settings – Sharpness – 50
(BTW, I’m using miniDisplay->DVI adapter to connect to U2410)
- Go to System Preferences -> Displays. In Dell U2410 window, choose “Color” tab, you may find “Dell U2410 (tkjune)” in the left list. Click it.
The color of your monitor should now change. Is that okay? If not, you still have to “Calibrate…” by yourself. Don’t worry it’s quite easy with the guide of Apple Display Calibrator Assistant. Only that you may have to do it several times to find out your favorite mode. Tips for you: Open same application window, same photo in both monitors and calibrate step by step. To make the U2410’s color exact same with MacBook Pro’s LCD, you win.
