    There's been a plethora of claims lately that an LCD screen is junk
    for Photo editing. They're not and you don't have to do as I did and
    spend a monster bunch of bucks on expensive screens only to find that
    cheap ones work pretty well too !

    At the heart of it all is the ability to manipulate the way your
    display card sends colour information to the screen in ways its (it's)
    maker never intended you to! To do this I used a program called "Power
    Strip". A quaint little RGB gamma adjuster comes with this program
    which then accesses controls on my Asus, PCI Express display card
    which uses a Nvidia chip and has 500 meg of video ram, to produce
    amazingly correct colour and gamma.

    The system I used for this demo has a 21" "LG Flatron Wide" monitor
    with 2000:1 contrast ratio. I also discovered that by using a display
    card with a "Digital output" connector and using a digital cable, the
    PC did not need to convert digital VGA data to analogue, only to be
    converted back to digital by the screen! This itself made a quantum
    change to how the screen actually worked.

    It's working in a colour balanced network where all the PCs match
    Xerox and Minolta digital laser printers, an r2400 (Epson) Inkjet, A
    CD/DVD printer and a 9800 (Epson) wide format printer. I've only
    included those prints which I could clip on the screen to take a photo
    of it! I'm sure you can fill in the blanks yourselves!
