8. If you're curious, you can "measure" your monitor's color temperature visually. Turn down the ambient light in your work area and click the Measure button in the dialog box. The Adobe Gamma tool will show you three gray squares against a black screen. Click the left square to make them all cooler, or the right square to make them warmer. When you are satisfied that you have a neutral gray, click the center square or press Enter to create your Custom hardware white point. If you change your mind, you can still select 6500K or another color temperature from the drop-down list.

9. Click Next to proceed to the dialog box shown in Figure 6.47. There, you can choose to work at a different white point from the one you've just set for your hardware. You will rarely need to change this. Click Next again to move to the final dialog box.

10. You're done. A dialog box pops up to allow you to compare your original monitor setting with the new one. Click Finish to save the profile and exit the Adobe Gamma application.
