    Computer Smart People ~ Question ???

    Riddle me this......
    When I go on many web sites...including this site & Ebay...etc.
    Many of the posted photos come up LOOKING VERY DARK on my computer monitor.
    Though some photos look and are of "normal/proper" brightness ~
    OTHER web site viewers are obviously seeing the very same photos that I am looking at (as being way too DARK) ~ as "normal" photos with "normal brightness" ~
    I have my monitor set to "100% Brightness" but that sure does not help.

    If......I "save" the dark photo to my computer & then put it into Photo Studio & raise the brightness level on it ~ I can then see it as it should look IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    Any "Idears" about what is going on?
    Could one of my other color settings (or something) be wrong?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    My Regards,
    QKShooter

    Hmmm, that's a new one on even me. The only thing that I can think of that may be the problem, but not sure is the way your picture viewer handles the display of the pic. A couple of questions.... What browser do you use, Internet Explorer? What picture viewer do you use? Can you send me an example of a webpage (a link) that has a picture that appears dark to you? Could it be the color of the background that surrounds the picture that influencing your perception that it is dark?

    Thanks Bumper

    I have Internet Explorer as an alternate browser in my computer but I am using the AOL browser.
    So...How do I know that other folks are actually seeing things differently??
    Well, somebody will post a photo...& people right below it will say: Great PIC!!!...Nice Gun!...who makes those sights? And...I am looking at the same photo & I see a doggone dark square...not only can I not see the sights but I can barely see the gun.

    OK here is an example LINK...I was just on this web site earlier.
    Scroll down to the last photo of the tooled holster & tell me if you see any carving on the leather holster because I SEE the outline of a holster & the main body of the whole holster is nearly all black.

    For the most part, that picture looks dark to me. I see some of the detail on the right side, but the left is too dark to make out much detail. I saved it to my desktop and veiwed it with VuePrint (my graphics viewer) and it looked the same as on the website. My monitor is a little darker than I prefer, but as light as it goes....

    The first decoy and the leather cuffs look "normal" to me and has good detail....

I was gonna suggest you check you video connection cable then i saw you said if you download it and lighten it its fine ... For that i dont have a clue unless you gamma adjustments are out of whack beyond that i dont have a clue

    OK ...one more test.

    Do you see this slide as a black blob or do you see any detail on it at all?


    With that holster...I see about nothing but a few highlights near the edge & I see no tooling at all.

    Their Faces

    I see no detail on either face. Just silhouettes but I see highlights on the boys nose.

    Thanks Bud

    I see nothing on that slide & the slide is as dark as the shadows AKA BLACK.
    Keep in mind that my monitor is set to full brightness.
    Not all photos look dark to me...some look OK.

    I can see the clothes & the muffs look like they have a blue front edge but the rest of the muffs look solid black.

    I think you're seeing them about normal. I would use Explorer, not AOL's browser.....

    Myabe you should get rid of the virus known as AOL. AOL infects your computer with all kinds of programs that you have no control over. see if you can hook up your computer to a real ISP. I had AOL about 10 years ago and had all kinds of problems that AOL tech support kept on blaming on my computer. It is kind of fummy that the same computer worked fine after I dumped AOL. You can get a better ISP for less money. OH by the way every picture looked perfect, I use firefox for my browser and have a hi speed cable modem.
