I have a Mac and a PC side by side, the site background and images are decidedly warmer on the Mac. I haven't calibrated the monitor for a while, but I'm confident that it isn't all that far off. FWIW, the Mac drives a Dell monitor, and the PC is a Dell laptop.
I'm running Safari on a not calibrated Macbook Pro (2 years old) and they look great. A slight sepia, but it varies from image to image, so looks intentional. Not knowing what you want them to look like, it's tough to know. But I wouldn't call it sickly or pale.
Many moons ago, I made the statement that trying to correct "wet" images from PC viewing was not a good way to go ... and was HEAPED with misery, i.e., "You KLUTZ - CALIBRATE your monitor!!"
My "direction" is to make EXHIBITION "wet" prints - not to produce PC images accepted by all. I hope we recognize that variations do exist in this electronic system and, I guess, some degree of tolerance and... squinting is really necessary.
All the pics were cut in half on my Mac running Firefox 2.0.
It needs to be viewed in fullscreen to show full image area. should be no cropping when viewed that way. Because of the way the site is set up they are rather small if sized to view correctly in normal screen mode on a small monitor. I need to put in a comment on the opening screen to select full screen mode - thanks for reminding me.
Thanks everyone. I think I will try to work them so that they don't exceed the max saturation that I am happy with on a Mac and then accept further reduced saturation on the PC. I will also standardise the saturation from image to image.
I reset the mac to gamma 2.2 and it helped but there is still a significant increase in brightness and warmth on the mac screen.
