Gamma Correction

09 September 2004

Looking at the new design for Stacey's site, I noticed that the colors appeared quite differently on my notebook's LCD and my work computer's CRT.

This monitor calibration site helped me tune my display's individual RGB gamma corrections, so the colors really show as they're meant to be seen. I used xgamma to adjust my gamma settings on the fly and saved the settings into my XF86Config-4 file. My LCD looks much richer now and not as washed out.

I expect this will greatly improve the quality of images that I edit on my notebook as well.
