I have two monitors of different models connected to one video adapter. The color of output is very different.

Is there a way that somehow I could get an ICC for one monitor based on the other? For example I give the tool a photo of both monitors displaying the same simple color, so the tool could compare the color and set the color of the bad one.

The easiest way would be to get a device like Spyder You can get Express version for something around 100$. It's not that cheap but will give you decent result.

Yes, a professional device should be the choice. But consider that I rarely use it, and I do not need "exactly the same". So 100$ is expansive. – Magicloud Jan 7 '14 at 7:24
