Hello folks!
I have a bit of a problem. You see, I have a MacBook Pro and I've set it's gamma to 2.2. However, when I boot up Windows on the mac, all the pictures are blueish.
Let's take this picture for example, me.
' . substr('//farm1.static.flickr.com/169/380534352_a0c8b6c9e5.jpg?v=0', strrpos('//farm1.static.flickr.com/169/380534352_a0c8b6c9e5.jpg?v=0', '/') + 1) . '
On OsX it's fairly warm, but on windows it's rather blueish.
Currently OsX color profile is set to Native white point and gamma 2.2.
I've tried to calibrate it through the Advanced settings but I always screw that up.

Help?... Anyone?...

I suppose that i may be some driver compatibility issue, since Boot Camp is still in beta.
But if it looks fine on other people Windows, then I guess there is no problem.

But it would be nice to get a comment from some other windows users.

As I see it, on Windows, a PC, TFT screen, in fairly bright daylight (though I'm in the shade), it looks fine - may, just maybe, very slightly to the cold rather than the warm, but no more than would be personal preference processing-wise.

I had simular problem. Turn on Proof Colors option. Make sure monitor is your selected device.

Thanks Nicolai.
Would you mind walking me through how do do this?
I can't seem to find this in the system preferences...

Oh, i figured it out as soon as i posted.
But the difference I see is mainly in gamma, not in image temperature.
and I only have one monitor so that goes as default.
