I find that my current monitor (Orion 17 inch OC-17DB0725)
has adjustments for brightness and contrast but none for
gamma. The venerable Gimp User Manual (GUM) offers
instructions for making at least a crude Gamma adjustment.
But my monitor has no such adjustment. and when I load the
file recommended by the GUM I find that my monitor is at
the high end of the scale for gamma.
Is there a monitor at a reasonable cost, a few hundreds of
dollars, that allows for adjustment of gamma? Bearing in
mind the limitations of Gimp in the color management area,
what is suggested? I just want to get things close enough
that what I send to the printer will bear some relationship
to what I see on the screen in Gimp, allowing for (of
course) the conversion to CMYK at some point.
