    Crap. So, I use a laptop as my main computer. In fact, I have no desktop. So, I'm doing my thing, designing a site, and I have to take a break for this annoying thing called class. I get to class, I'm bored, so I use the computer there, which has a CRT monitor, to work remotely on my site.

    My site is GREY on CRT monitors!! It's BLUE on my LCD display on my laptop! S--t!

    Does anyone else have to deal with this most vile trickery? Any pointers?

    I'm pretty frustrated right now, I can't believe the difference I'm seeing between my LCD and the CRT. :angry: :angry: :angry:

    All I can say is learn form it. This is problem we all face as web designers. Trying to make our work look similar on virtualy every computer out there, set to virtualy every congiguration possiable. Just know that very few people will ever see your work the way you intend it to look so you must account for that as much as possiable.

    Thanks Brak. I'll look into that on my college budget!!

    If you have any more stellar advice...

    haha j/k. I realize I should be using a CRT, but it just isn't in the cards.

    This is a serious setback though. Not knowing the colors you're working with... is fairly crappy.

    You can start by calibrating your monitor, Adobe Gamma, which comes installed alongside Photoshop is probably the most commonly used... there will always be a difference between LCD & a CRT but you can at least reduce the difference.

    Do a search on Google etc. for 'Monitor calibration'.
