    Ipad paintings turning out to warm and flat.

    I am finding when I upload the paintings to my imac which has a calibrated monitor, the paintings from the ipad are turning out to warm and flat and yet they look fine in ArtRage on the Ipad. I am having to correct the white point to get a good color.
    eg. Top one straight from ipad.
    Bottom one after adjusting white point.

    The iPad's screen calibration will be different to that on your Mac, particularly in terms of gamma but we've seen a purple shift as well. Because we don't adjust colour profiles internally post-editing on your iMac is unfortunately the only way to solve the problem at this time.

    Thanks Matt, I do have a program loaded on the ipad for Spyder calibration but its just a gallery so you can check colors, you can't edit. I don't like using other programs to alter levels as I feel like I am cheating saying everything is done in ArtRage when its not. It could also cause a problem for the magazine competition where it says no other program to be used.

    In ArtRage while painting everything looks fine, colors are sharp whites are white and crisp, to paint I would have to pick all shade with a blue tint to get it to look right in calibrated software.

    Hello Saphire

    Is this painting 100 percent done on iPad? Or was it started on iPad with simpler details and later finished with Full Artrage on the Desktop?

    If it is 100 percent on iPad, it is really amazing !! I am happy & surprised that one can do so much on the iPad.

    With best regards

    PRSS, thank you for your comment, the painting was done on the iPad, nothing else used. I do have the ArtRage 4 on my main computer but prefer to paint on my iPad I can use it anywhere. To paint fur I only use one tool, the ink pen on full taper. Glad you like it.

    Hi Saphire,
    I don't have an iPad so I can't check this personally but I do use a Spyder4Pro on my two monitors.
    As I understand it when your computer and iPad are connected you can then run the SpyderGallery App on the iPad which will allow you to use the same Spyder sensor that you use on your computer screen on the iPad's screen. It will run through the same colour calibration tests that it performs on your normal monitor and then assign a corrected colour profile for your iPad to use until its next re-calibration.
    There is of course more info to be had on SpyderGallery's use on DatorColor's website; http://spyder.datacolor.com/portfoli...pyder-gallery/
    Hope this helps.
