Viewing Instructions

By completing these simple steps, you will be able to see much greater detail and colour in the gallery images. These are simple adjustments to make, with no risk of harming your computer in the process, and you can easily change the settings back if you prefer.

  1. The contrast and brightness of your monitor needs to be properly set - you should be able to easily, and distinctly, distinguish all eleven of the boxes in the chart below. If you can not (especially the darkest levels), please follow the 'calibrate monitor' link, and follow the few simple instructions. Generally, on older monitors, both the brightness and contrast settings should be set to near maximum.

  2. This site is best viewed on a monitor that is set to a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels
    [In Windows XP click start > control panel > display > settings > display resolution].
    Also, please check that your monitor is set to a minimum 24-bit colour depth (32-bit is best)
    [start > control panel > display > settings > color quality].

  3. You will need to have javascript enabled in your browser in order to view the galleries, or to use the navigation menu at the top of the page. Ninety-nine percent of browsers should have this as their default setting. If you are having trouble viewing the galleries, please check your browsers documentation.

  4. You will need the Adobe Flash player plugin installed in your browser, version 7 or greater. You will be prompted to upgrade to the latest version if it is required.

By following these simple steps, you will maximize your viewing experience on this site, as well as for any other website or application that requires the best possible colour and resolution.
