f.lux messing with calibration profiles

  • f.lux keeps messing with color profiles in windows. I have to close f.lux if I want anything near actual colors and gamma. Is there any way to use the current profile as a baseline? Even the default profile for the screen does not work, let alone the calibrated profile I made with windows. It's a real pain to have to close f.lux whenever I need to do anything important.

    Hi John - we have some notes about this in our FAQ:

    The main issue is that these utilities do not save your changes in a way we can read (like a "real" hardware calibrator would).

    (Linked in the FAQ...) There is an app called "QuickGamma" that will make a real profile from your manual settings, and this helps most people do what you want to do.

  • Is there any way to convert the "bad" configs to proper configs you can read? or add in the functionality to read these files within f.lux itself?

    I have not tried it but people say good things about QuickGamma:
