I'm pretty sure this is a broken monitor profile, and Enik has attempted to "fix" it by disabling color management altogether (which is what those color settings will do). So Enik, this isn't how you fix it. You fix it by fixing your monitor profile. This is what people have calibrators for - but if you don't have one, use sRGB IEC61966-2.1 for now. It won't be entirely accurate, but much better than a broken monitor profile. Krita and Clip Studio aren't color managed and do not use the moni...

You appear to be using a monitor profile as RGB Working Space – why?

The RGB working space profile controls the relationship between RGB numbers and visual appearance (it does this by referring to Lab or XYZ, but you probably don't need to know that).

Because that’s what it does it's pretty risky to use a display profile as a working space.

It may not be linear (making for unpredictable edits)

and

For a file that may get passed to another user, what use is it now? It's using your own unique display profile as a colourspace, Please believe us it's not good practice. 

 

just my 2p

 

I hope this helps someone out there

Indeed, your RGB Working Space isn't set correctly for one (NEVER select your display profile here, it isn't for that task).

It also looks like you're not viewing in 24-bit color or greater on the display. What you show appears as banding due to how the display is previewing that dialog.

As for color settings, you're got to work on better settings and an understanding of why they should be set. Can I recommend you view:

Krita and Clip Studio aren't color managed and do not use the monitor profile at all, so they are unaffected.

 

Restore all your color settings to defaults! That's not where the problem is. You do that by picking one of the General Purpose presets.

OK, so now you know that the monitor profile is the problem. I don't use DisplayCal, but from what I hear it has a lot of settings you normally should avoid. Keep it simple.

 

  • Set DisplayCal to make version 2 profiles, not version 4. Version 2 is what we all use, because v4 has proved unreliable in many scenarios (and carries no real benefits).
  • Set it to make matrix-based profiles, not table-based (LUT). Some software will call this Curves or Matrix+curves.
  • Set the number of measurement patches to minimum. A large patch number sounds good, but can result in overly complicated and twisted curves. You want the curve as simple and smooth as possible.
