    People,

    My site looks fine on my PC. It's bright; & has good clarity.

    When I view it on other PC's, it looks dull...as in, not bright enough. It doesn't matter if it's my PC at work, or one of the machines down at the library...it just looks washed out.

    What could be wrong?

    Thanks,

    Probably your monitor at home has it's contrast and brightness up, more than the default (which is pretty close on most monitors).

    If anything, on my Sony laptop your site is too bright. In past experience I have found that if you have Adobe Photoshop installed, it comes with something called gamma correction- if this is not set up correctly it can make your colours look quite different. So I'd try checking that out.

    Some new TFT screens seem to be extremely bright, if that is the case, maybe you should develop your website on another screen, or pick your colours then develop it on your own pc.

    [Li] Brad & 3rdfusion,

    Thanks for the responses. I use both Photoshop & Illustrator in the creation of images for the site, but there are no color profiles or gamma corrections set for either app.

    I guess it's just the difference in monitors. The thing was...I was really disappointed, because I had worked so hard on the site. When I viewed it; & it didn't look the same as it did on my monitor, it kinda' took the wind out of my sails.

    Thanks again,

    mark4man
