Monitors
Most of the colours in use on this site are soft pastel colours. If you are experiencing any viewing harshness then your monitor is probably set too brightly. A simple brightness test is to view the black screen area around the monitor image in a dark room. If what should be a dull black area glows at all then you need to turn the brightness down. Unfortunately some monitors require the brightness at a high level to give you much of a picture at all. We will be providing a full monitor test program in the near future. Please take care in a darkened room.
