Most of the mid-gray box gamma tools don't work very well as most of them will
vary +- 0.2 gamma on repeated tests. This is enough to make these tools
close to useless. In LProf I use the gamma tool from Norman Koren's web
My experience is that this is way more consistent than any of the others I
tried and repeated tests are consisant to about +- 0.05 gamma which I think is
very good for a visual tool like this. The results from this are very close
to those obtained using a measurement device. In addition this also allows
for adjusting the black level of the monitor.
I got explicit perission from Norman to use this in LProf so you will need to
ask him before using it in GCM. I suspect that he will not have a problem
Also in LProf I have this setup to allow users to set the gamma for the
individual channels (red, green and blue).
