Thank you
I'm afraid we're on a bit of a hiding to nothing trying to talk about colours like this. I'm viewing this forum post on an LCD monitor - I have the brightness turned down and colours muted a bit so it doesn't feel like it's burning out my eyes too quickly (I spend 8 hours a day staring at it). So I see my version of the photo. You'll have your monitor calibrated differently and will see a different version. All I can say is that the colours are a lot more muted than on an LCD display, but (particularly if you boost the brightness/saturation with software before loading onto the jetBook) they are probably good enough for comics. It also depends how much ambient light you have around. LuBiB seems to have a house that's lit up with floodlights - his screen will look better than mine as I have relatively dim lighting at home.

Additionally, if you've balanced the photo so that white is white then you've probably made it less representative of reality as the jetBook Color screen background is far from white under normal conditions.

Andrew
