I have my monitor set to the way I like it, it shows colors accurately and not overly bright (white doesn't blind me). However I edit photos for the web and this is great for my screen but I have noticed when looking at other screens my photos will at times looked washed out and not a good presentation. If I manually change my monitor settings to be brighter (and a few other tweaks) I can replicate the look of other monitors close enough to help prevent washed out/blown out photos. Here is the issue, I need to be able to change settings between the two fairly easily. To manually set my monitor for one then back to the other can be time consuming and a pain to set right every time.

I would like to be able to preset certain settings (in software) that I can quickly switch between by pressing hotkeys or clicking shortcut on my desktop. I have an AMD video card and have attempted to use the AMD VISION Engine Control Center to add presets then tweak the settings for each. However when I switch between the presets the settings are the same.

How do I build presets using the VISION Engine Control Center that actually works (maybe I misunderstand what it is saving?) or is there a way to do this in Windows 7 or free software that actually works decently for this purpose?

Here is the way to do this using AMD Catalyst Control Center.

Settings that are saved within a preset are determined based on the page currently shown in the Control Center application window. Therefore, it is important that you navigate to the appropriate page before creating a preset.

Creating Presets:

  1. Navigate to the desired page and apply the changes that you want to save.

  2. Under the Presets group in the navigation pane, click Add Preset.

  3. In the Preset dialog box that opens, expand the following groups, and provide the appropriate information.

Applying Presets:

Control Center Application Window—Under the Presets group in the navigation pane, click the preset that you want to apply. Alternatively, click Manage Presets; in the Manage Presets dialog box that opens, select the desired preset, and then click Apply.

• Windows Start Menu—Click the Windows Start button followed by the appropriate Control Center option. In the Presets folder, click the desired preset
