Huey Pro and Win7 color profil - W700

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have a w700 with Win7 business and Huey Pro 1.24.

If I calibrate the screen all works perfectly. The problem is I use the Huey profil by default for my build in screen on Win7 color management, the red are not red on Win7 image viewer or Photoshop.

If i want something looking good i have to use the Lenovo maxbright display profil.

If i try to reload (reload button) the Huey pro profil on windows color manager, i get an message error.

 

If somebody have an idea ?

 

Any help will be highly appreciated.

 

Marc

Same here. Reds are way off.

 

Recently I attended a colormanagement workshop by X-Rite and mentioned that problem with the Huey Pro built into some Lenovo Models. The verbal reply was shocking: The speaker (X-Rite ) knew about this problem and named Huey Pro a 'Toy' certainly not meant for serious photographers. This I heard from X-Rite, no kidding. So this feature is only a useless marketing gimmick between Adobe and Lenovo, nothing more. And we paid for it some extra $$.

Furthermore, the same person strongly advised me to disable the built in Huey Pro and properly calibrate the screen (W701) with a professional unit in order to get correct colors.

I followed this advice and now the colors are right and the prints come out as I am expecting them to be - no more hues and/or color casts.

As a photographer using the W701 often and allover the place I need to calibrate it every 10 days to 2 weeks.

For me this is a sad issue and does not raise the reputation of Thinkpads.

Apart from that I am very happy with this powerfull machine.

Hope this helps others to remedy their color problem with this machine.

Re: Huey Pro and Win7 color profil - W700

for me the problem was the sensor, not the software. I changed the sensor and know all work like a charm.
The red are red, and i get the right profil.

I disabled the Huey and lived with poor calibrattion

I will go ahead and replace the sensor
