Hi,
I am running MBP 15 inch with 2nd external LCD monitor in extended desktop mode.
The external LCD is razor sharp with good contrast.
On other hand, MBP's LCD is a bit washed out. Blacks appear almost grey. Is there a way to adjust contrast (not brightness) on MBP? I did calibration (not advanced) without much luck.
I searched Apple Support with no avail.

Thanks

OK, I did Calibration in expert mode and it helped.
Cheers

fyi:

Contrast Settings are in System Preferences > Universal Access > "Enhance Contrast" Slider

I think that just messes with the colours on the screen (i.e. it compresses the colourspace so that black and white are closer together)...slide all the way and you&#39;ll see what I mean. I think what Andy was after is monitor contrast (like what used to be on ye-olde CRT displays) rather than colour contrast....if you get my drift.

Well done Barters. It would seem, other than "within" programs, contrast is unavailable. Ekspecially on your TFT. I think.

Not so much unavailable, as superseded by calibration I think.
