Does anyone know a good emulator/calibrator for making a PC monitor simulate a Mac?

In regards to colors I mean..

use the colour profiler in photoshop

the only difference between mac and pc is..

mac gamma = 1.8

pc (and tv) gamma = 2.2

don't know if your graphics card drivers will allow you to change your output gamma though so probably the best bet is copy your existing photoshop profile and change the gamma.

Basically, PC displays are slightly darker so the main consideration is really when designing on a mac not to make things too dark of lower contrast otherwise they will look rubbish on pc's, the other way round isn't so bad, but again, if it's too light it may look washed out on macs
