1 - Before you start, make sure your computer is set for its maximum
image quality--that's a screen size of at least 800 by 600, and 16 bit
- Set your monitor for maximum contrast. Use the controls on the monitor.
- Use the test pattern below to set shadow point. It has 9 very dark
vertical patches. Adjust
your monitor's brightness so that patch area 1 to 3 are entirely black,
and patches 4 and up are barely visible. If you can see the patch 1
and 2 distinctly, then your brightness is set too high.
