How to adjust the gamma of your monitor and get more real colors


We talk about some applications designed so that we can adjust the gamma of our screen and thus get more real colors

The screen to which we spend so many hours a day in many cases, is one of the peripherals that we should take care of all those we have connected to our PC , since very important sections depend on it every day with our team .

And the quality is correct use, or adjustment of a device such as the screen, will depend in some way the operation of the applications that we use, as well as the user experience or the health of our eyesight. That is why we are going to talk about a series of applications for “gamma correction” of monitors.

These free tools for Windows to which We are going to mention, they will allow us to have more control over the RGB pixels of a screen, which also allows us to adjust its brightness to at the same time customize the needs of each case depending on the type of use we make of the equipment. It is worth mentioning that there are three types of gamma, the one that applies to the cameras , the one that refers to the video card and the screen, or the one that represents the effect of all the values gamma .

Therefore it is evident that in these lines we will focus on the second of the modes, known as “Display Gamma”, applications that will help us calibrate the monitor of the computer. While there is a standard value of gamma that is 2.2 in this sector, we will say that the screens are generally manufactured according to this standard, which facilitates the development of software for color calibration . So, we are going to talk about some applications with which we can adjust the gamma value of the monitor in order to achieve more real colors.

Applications to correct the gamma value of our PC screen in Windows

This is the case of the tool called QuickGamma , a free proposal of this type that will initially show us the levels of gamma and black of the screen , next to the color profile that we have as default. Therefore, then we will have the possibility to modify and adjust the mentioned gamma value and see the changes that this produces, all to adapt the visualization to our needs. This is something we can do through the "+" and "-" buttons that are located next to each bar of the RGB colors of the main interface.

In the same way we will talk about DisplayCAL , another program that in this case will allow us to calibrate the screen based on can create color profiles for the custom gamma tone curve , as well as white levels. Similarly, the program itself offers several profiles built-in and predefined if we want to opt for one of these, while we can also opt for the automatic calibration mode >.

And finally we will talk about Calibrize , a program that puts in our hands a simple calibration process divided into two sections : brightness and contrast on the one hand, and gamma on the other. The first mode consists of a white circle where we set a maximum value of contrast to adjust the brightness properly. For its part in the second we will have to adjust three sliders, RGB, so that we can customize the color of the screen.
