Calibrating Your Monitor

The step wedge (greyscale) you see displayed above is made of 17 individual steps from black on the far left to white on the far right. In order to view the images found in this website as they were meant to be seen, adjust the brightness and contrast controls on your monitor so each step is visible. For example: If you cannot distinguish the black step from the lighter step to its right, increase the brightness. If the white step cannot be distinguished from the darker step to its left, then decrease the brightness. Step wedge courtesy of Chuck Vaughn.

The step wedge should not have a tint. If it does, adjust you monitor's color settings to correct out the tint.

Images are intended to be viewed at a resolution of 1024x768 or higher and at least 24bit (True Color).
