Monitor Calibration

Images on this website may look considerably different when viewed under different conditions such as the type of monitor, the screen resolution, bit depth, etc. Hence we have provided a basic screen calibration chart below.

When viewed at a distance of around 10 feet or more from the monitor the three top bars should look different: the left bar should appear slightly darker than the neutral grey surrounding. The bar in the centre should appear to blend with the surrounding while the right bar should be lighter.

The lower bar, features 16 key shades of greyscale across. You should be able to reasonably distinguish between these 16 shades. If you only see differences amongst the middle and lower shades your monitor is too bright. If you only see differences between the higher and middle shades your monitor is too dark.

You can use the references above as a guide to adjust your monitor accordingly.
