I recently switched back to a Dell XPS, in search of a computer with the most RAM and best SSD I could find. However, as a content creator and photographer I quickly realized that photos on my new computer screen looked NOTHING like they did in print, on my phone, or on other computers. The screen was VERY vibrant, over-saturated, and orange.
The problem with this was when I was editing photos, they would look great on my computer, but when I exported them they looked really dull on other devices (skin tone looked grey instead of warm). This was obviously a huge issue for me to resolve, as I would never want to send photos to a client that didn't look great on their own device, or in print.
I have tried monitor calibration tools in the past and did not like the result. Instead, I take the approach of checking my photos on other devices and in print periodically to make sure that they look consistently good in those forms. So basically I was just looking for a way to turn down some of that saturation on my new Dell XPS.
Dell has a solution for this, as I soon found! It is called Dell PremierColor, and you can download it here from their website.
When I first opened up the tool, the Color Gamut was set to "Vibrant (Full)". I switched it over to "Internet (sRGB)" and instantly all the issues I had were gone! There are also settings on here to limit blue light which is great for nighttime browsing.
Hope this is helpful if you were having the same issues I was!
