Dell 8600 for photo editing...

Recommended Posts

I use my Dell 8600 to mainly edit and print photos. Adobe CS2 is pretty much all i use it for. It has NVGo5650 graphics and I am looking for a very high quality driver that might be better for a photo/video editing pc. ANy suggestions? I am going to be buying a Eye-One Display 2 colorimeter to calibrate the LCD so my prints match the screen more accurately. Any help would be great.

Depending on the quality of the LCD screen of the laptop you might not be able to achieve a good color matching. You might want to consider the LaCie Blue Eye 2 colorimeter. It uses the hardware of the Gretag McBeth but with a better software suite.

This colorimeter is used intensively by BeHardware... so you might want to email Vincent Alzieu. And here is a benchmark of the Colorvision Spyder 2 against the LaCie Blue Eye.

Well i frequent the forums at photozo.com since photography is a hobby. Alot of knowledgeable people over there when it comes to this stuff and the eye-one display 2 is supposed work excellent on LCD or laptop displays. I have the WSXGA screen, Samsung brand I believe.
