Are there any system-wide, manual color correcting/calibrating programs for Windows? Software that allows you to adjust colors with more control and precision than you get with most ATI/NVIDIA display drivers?

I find that some of the ATI/NVIDIA drivers, perhaps for older graphics cards, lack enough control to really allow an accurate match with printed output. I was wondering if there's a non-proprietary color correction program that might provide the level of control that I'm needing, without having to buy new hardware?

Thanks for any suggestions!


I suppose by "non-proprietary" you mean not distributed by a GPU manufacturer.

In this case, take a look at Powerstrip. It works its magic for pretty much any graphics card and monitor and any version of Windows (since 95), most certainly the best program of its kind, by a far cry.

A simple menu that pops up from the system tray provides access to some 500 controls over your display hardware, including sophisticated color correction tools.

Powerstrip is shareware, try before you buy.
