Ideally, your monitor adjusted for
a minimum of 1024 by 768
pixels in 16million color mode. I have included simple monitor
calibration tools to help you optimise your display.
Monitor Setup and
If your monitor has not been calibrated, then I
suggest that you begin by using the gray wedge provided below. The
idea being to adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast controls
so that at least the first 12 steps e.g. from white to 95% black are
visible, the distinction between 95% and 100% should just be
barely visible. To achieve this you should first set your monitor
contrast (adjusts how bright white is) control to maximum, then
adjust the brightness (adjusts how dark black is).
All of the images on this
web site have been optimised for display on a gamma 2.2 calibrated
monitor. The steps outlined above should result in you obtaining near
optimum white and black levels. To check your actual monitor gamma
level you should sit back from the monitor, squint a little, and
establish which of the inner numbered boxes comes closest to blending
with the patterned gray surround.
