Default Re: What gamma setting do you use?

The Windows standard is 1.8. The Mac standard is 2.2...

I've read that 2.2 gamma is a 'standard' but it seems so dang bright, heh. I'm at 1.5 right now, going to get some prints done tomorrow, hopefully they look normal. Didn't pay for the screwed up ones of course, they always treat me right.

One reason I ask is because the gamma setting changes the look of pictures in online galleries quite a bit. A picture that looked fine to me at 1.0 gamma had ugly artifacts at 1.5 (fixed it, so no example for you). I wonder how many people use high gamma like 2.2 and think the pictures I've adjusted to 1.0 gamma look weird?
