Adobe Gamma exists along with Mac's ColorSync calibration located in the Monitors control panel in OS 9.x. However, if you are using Adobe Gamma with Mac OS 9.x, you should disable ColorSync. Adobe Gamma does not exist in Mac OS X. If you have a dual boot system you can create a profile in OS 9.x and copy it over to OS X. There is a monitor calibration feature in the monitor preferences panel that uses ColorSync. Also, this calibration is generally for CRT monitors. LCD monitors have fewer adjustable parameters and not all of them are suitable for image editing.

2. You'll be given a choice of using a step-by-step, wizard approach, or going directly to the control panel itself. The wizard merely presents the choices provided in the control panel one at a time. If this is the first time you've used Adobe Gamma, you'll want to work with the parameters one at a time. Click the Step by Step (Assistant) button (on the Mac) or the Step by Step (Wizard) button on the PC, and click Next. (If you have more than one monitor connected to your computer, the wizard will prompt you to drag the dialog box onto the monitor you want to calibrate.)

3. In the next dialog box, shown in Figure 6.42, you'll be invited to assign a unique name for the profile you're creating. If you've previously saved a profile and want to edit that, you can click the Load button and locate the profile on your hard disk. For example, you may have a monitor profile provided by the vendor of your particular display (if not, check their website). Click Next to move to the next dialog box.
