Unable to calibrate color after installing f.lux. :( Had to uninstall)



  • I have to have true life color on my computer screen for my business. After installing f.lux, my color calibration was totally off during the daylight hours. When I corrected the calibration to pre f.lux install, as soon as the calibration process was completed, f.lux would usurp my changes. Sadly I had to uninstall.

    What hardware calibrator did you use? We'd like to know, since we respect all the hardware calibrations that we know of.



  • It is just the "advanced color calibration" that comes with my laptop. Laptops in general tend to have a very blue color spectrum and I have to have mine "true color". After installing f.lux, the flux software changed the calibration. So when I went in (while flux was installed), and RE-calibrated my color, it all looked good until I hit the "finish" button on the calibration process. At that point, flux reverts my computer, even though I just re-calibrated it, back to it's off color "flux" default.

    We always recommend quitting f.lux while building a new profile, but as long as you save it in .ICM or .ICC format, we load it properly when you restart.

    "Advanced Color Calibration"? Is this something that is creating a new .ICC or .ICM profile and then automatically switching to it? Open Color Management in Windows: is "Use my settings for this device" selected? If so, then what color profile is currently set as the default?
