Legion Y520 Display Color Difference

2018-01-21, 15:30 PM

Hello everyone! I have a big problem. I'm graphic designer and my laptop's color is bad. Purple like blue. Intel Graphics settings don't work. I can't see the color I want. The screen is different than the phone. I need help :( thanks for everything.

Yes, you are right. LCD (in this generally good model of notebook) is rather poor.

Look here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Y700-15ISK-Screen-color-calibration/td-p/3441288


but it's not satisfying me. I also bought color icm profile for office / designer use for about 5$ for this display (the model is precisely (LP156WF6_SPK3) but same result. Generally this profiles has too much red color.


I think, that really advanced calibration tool would really help to adjust the color to be natural, but I didn't find such advanced. However I use Lutcurve which isn't bad  soft and I made a color profile. Still, blue shades are too cyan etc. but generally gamma and color-to-grey balance are really better. If you want to try, I can send you the profile I made.


Best regards

Hello Mangomel ..
I'm a photographer and I'm facing the same issue here, I'm previewing my photos on the iPad Air2 because it has much color accuracy than this laptop display .. but it's frustrating to keep sending the photos to the IPad every time I want to calibrate the colors !
please can you send me this color profile and also teach me where I should install/put it ?
I'm using Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 and Lightroom CC
thanks in advance
