Monitor configuration?

What do most people sugest for monitor configuration. Are there any “standards?” I’m sure if there are standards there is many, which completly elminates the purpose of the “standard.” :frowning:

So do you guys use a program to configure your monitor, or just wing off what looks best?

Problem is alot of times, especially with darker or lighter images people will complain about the lighting and the problem isn’t really the lighting but that the two people see different things because of their different monitor configs. :frowning:

Mainly, adjust your brightness and contrast so you can see diferent shades of gray in the patches strip.
