1280x1024 x 2 displays. Drives me nuts to help others using only one screen--gotta keep opening/closing/moving palettes, and if I bump the resolution up, I can't read the text or icons.

I use 1280x1024. This is primarily based on the fact that I use LCD monitors. With LCDs you need to operate them at the
"native" resolution of the monitor or text does not look good.

Most LCD monitors 17" or bigger use 1280x1024 as the native resolution. I don't know about the really big ones.

Dual is best

I use dual monitors a 21" Sony set to 1024x768 and a 19" Sony set to 800x600.

This is cool since I can drag a page onto the 800x600 to see how most of the world will see it.

I keep all my pallets handy on #2, with ACDsee 2.42 running in the background.

It's great for surfing too, keep email open on one and surf on the other, or bid on eBay one and check PriceWatch on the other.

1024x768 on a 14" laptop, don't understand how anyone can have trouble reading print at this size. Suggest visit to opticians for those that do.

Gary, my corrected vision is horrible--heck, I had a cornea transplant just to go from legally blind in that eye to marginal. And the other has enough astigmatism to motion blur the broadside of a barn.

Big screens are my friends. If I had room and money, I'd run an Apple 30" Cinema display or two, instead of a 22" and a 19".

Kevin, sorry to hear of your eye problems. If they're so bad, are you sure this is the hobby for you ?

Hard to tell. I've been working in software for over 30 years, photographed my first wedding in 1978, and have been using digital imaging software since the mid-1980's (Photoshop since version 1). Oh, and have been teaching Photoshop to professional photographers for the last 3 years.

Perhaps I should just give that up and go into construction or something where I don't have to use a computer or camera.

I suspect ignoring well-meaning but clueless advice is a better idea, though.

Kevin...

Sounds like a career then... I do a lot of construction and still don't see "so good". But then after a hard day in the middle of the summer I don't smell so good either.

I use a 17" monitor @1152X870 75Hz. My old Sony 17" bit the dust so I traded it for the eMachine monitor I got with the PC I got a while back. The Sony cost about $1,000 when new and the eMachine cost about $450 with a 17" flat screen monitor almost thrown in. I'm hoping to get a 21" Sony or Viewsonics or both soon... Although I've been lusting over a new G5 Mac for a while .

...Kent

Kevin, Sensitive or what ? Take the chip off your shoulder, it's unbalancing you.
