I own a Mac PC and I just bought a Dell display, which came with its calibration software that can only work in Windows. I have tried researching on their site for software that will work on Mac but it is not available. Where can I get calibration software for Mac? Any idea on how to go about the issue?
Display calibration software for the Mac OS
Because you have a Dell monitor that comes with a calibration software which is not compatible with your Mac OS X, you thought you also need a Mac version of the Dell calibration software. That is wrong. You can use any other calibration program designed for Mac OS X to calibrate your display properties.
Since you want a calibration software that will work on your Mac PC, try using SuperCal. It is a visual display calibrator designed for Mac OS X that can calculate and correct the majority of conventional displays like CRTs, projectors, and LCDs. To try it, visit SuperCal by bergdesign. There are different versions of the program.
Make sure to download the appropriate version for your computer. Also, aside from installing a monitor calibration software on your computer, there is another way of calibrating your display without purchasing a calibration program. There is a built-in calibration tool in Mac OS X called Display Calibrator Assistant that can help you calibrate your display.
To open and try it, click on the Apple menu then select System Preferences. Select Displays tab then click Display Calibrator Assistant and then just follow the instructions to calibrate your monitor. See image.
