How do i save the color profiles for 2 different monitors?

by sphhps / September 15, 2006 10:07 AM PDT

Hi - I use 2 monitors for photoshop. I schlep all the menus to the small monitor and use the big display for the photo. To profile both monitors for color correction i use an eye 1 Display 2 from greytag macbeth. When i shut off the machine, the o/s (i think) seems to forget which profile belongs to which display on the next power cycle. I believe what happens is that the last profile done is applied to both monitors. As long as the machine is running and both displays are profiled during the session, there are no problems. Save leaving the machine running, is there a way to make windows understand there needs to be two separate color profiles?

Monitor 1 is a LaCie 321 LCD DVI and 2 is a generic Dell LCD VGA. The machine is a Dell xps 400, 2 or 3 months old, 3.2 GHz, 4Gb RAM, Radeon X300 128 Mb DVI/VGA video card. Running xp pro. Thanks, - steve
