DisplayCAL for Mac3.8.9.3

16 March 2020

Display calibration and characterization.

What is DisplayCAL for Mac

DisplayCAL is a graphical user interface developed by Florian Höch for the display calibration and profiling tools of Argyll CMS, an open source color management system developed by Graeme Gill.

Calibrate and characterize your display devices using one of the many supported hardware sensors, with support for multi-display setups and a variety of available settings like customizable whitepoint, luminance, tone response curve as well as the option to create matrix and look-up-table ICC profiles, with optional gamut mapping, as well as some proprietary 3D LUT formats.

Features:
  • Support of colorimeter correction for different screens via correction matrices or calibration specral sample files (the latter only for specific colorimeters: i1 Display Pro, ColorMunki Display and Spyder 4/5).
  • Profile verification and measurement report: check the quality of profiles and 3D LUTs via measurements. Also supports custom CGATS files (e.g., FOGRA, GRACoL/IDEAlliance, SWOP) and using of reference profiles to obtain test values.
  • Test chart editor: Create charts with any amount of color patches, easy copy-and-paste from CGATS, CSV files (only tab-delimited) and spreadsheet applications.
  • Create synthetic ICC (matrix) profiles with custom primaries, white-, and blackpoint, as well as tone response.

Easy to use software that produces consistently good results. In comparison, the horrible X-Rite i1Profiler software produced inconsistent results with an obvious colour cast.

I'm a vision scientist, and it is amazing that such a powerful and comprehensive suite of software supporting most existing calibration hardware is available without charge. Highly recommended!

Using DisplayCAL (ex dispcalGUI) already for several years, I have only praise to express. I started to use it ever since getting ColorMunki Display and found out about DisplayCAL, knowing nothing about colors and profiling (and I still consider myself an amateur), immediately upon purchase of this consumer grade device—simply because I just had to, as software bundled with my calibrator made monitor picture worse than previously (too much green color), no matter what I tried. I am sure that was just me, but it does say something about user–friendliness and/or instructions provided by the packaged app. Regretting my purchase I went loking for an alternative to vendor software and luckily found DisplayCAL. It seemed intimidating to absolute beginner at first, compared to bundled click-and-run hassle-free software, which I found absolutely useless for myself, but even with my first calibration try I immediately saw what was the difference between having your display at stock settings vs profiled and calibrated. Now, many calibrations over, I find DisplayCAL both professional and yet easy to use tool that, surprisingly, does not cost a cent!
