I have a 17" Optima LCD screen. I was wondering if anyone could suggest the best settings I should have.

Currently I have my screen resolution at 1152 x 864 pixels with 32-bit color.

Using my monitor menu:

Color temp: user setting with R 70, G 70 & B 70

Image setup: focus 22, clock 50

Luminance: Brightness 80, Contrast 60

Those settings don't look that bad, actually. We can't really help on the resolution, as that is particular to the monitor. Different monitors recommend different resolutions.

As to the others, those could be good, but its really a question of what your goals are. If you're trying to make prints, then you need to compare what the prints looks like to your monitor. Then adjust until they look the same. If you're just posting for the web, that is harder because my monitor is calibrated by a hardware device but yours isn't. So it will only be luck on your part that it looks the same as mine.

Thanks for your reply eric. I find that other people have images that seem clearer than mine at different times. And was not sure if this is due to post production, my pics or my monitor. Maybe ALL three. LOL

Cheers and a Happy New Year to you.
