If I use a color a profile other than the default "iMac" profile, will that cause damage to the screen or am I just worrying about nothing.

    Changing the ColorSync profile won't damage the screen, but may change the color and brightness of the picture you're looking at.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    It is good to know that It does not cause harm to the screen. This was the only reason that I didn't want to change to profile to something that suits me better.

    Hello Frank

    Uncheck the box "Show profiles for this display only" and try either the Adobe RGB (1998) or sRGB IEC61966-2.1 profile, right away you will notice much richer color and less glare over the iMac Cal.. I'm actually using a EPSON sRGB profile that installed with there all-in-one print/scan software, it's real close to the Adobe RGB profile and my prints match perfectly. The other kicker is that at both BestBuy's in town, I went in and reset the profiles on there display iMac's and the crowd including the sales folks all cheered...
