Thumbs down

I am using 1280x1024 at a refresh rate of 85 Hz. Every thing looks great. No problems with the site, it seems to dynamically load OK with all the browsers I use.

I retract the 'well-intentioned' part. Would you have preferred me to simply answer your question without any explanation?

Probably what.

It just seemed strange* that someone would tell a contributor/visitor to a retouching forum that they might be in the wrong "hobby", simply on the basis of one post. I figured if you knew the background you might not be so hasty in your suggestion to find another "hobby". It appears I was incorrect. My apologies.

In the meantime, I'll continue saving for Apple's 30 inch Cinema. That and the Artisan should make a great combination, at a resolution I can use.

Kevin, Sorry if I caused you any offence. When I first posted the optician suggestion, it was meant as light hearted humour. I have seen your contributions to this site, and they are to be valued. When I suggested that possibly this was not the right hobby for you it was just that this is a very sight oriented activity, and possibly further damage to your sight could be caused by the large amount of close and detailed visual study that is usually involved in a restore.

If my meaning did not come across, you must put it down to my poor ability to express myself on screen. Sorry!

Two monitors both at 1280x1024; on the left is my 'reading and palette monitor' a 19" flat screen (Samsung SyncMaster 191T); on the right is my 'color' monitor' a 19" CRT (Sony Trinitron) set for 9300K. I don't ever actually 'proof' color on a monitor.

My eyes were at least 20/20 my whole life until I turned 40 and my near vision has been getting worse ever since. I'm wearing 1.5x reading glasses right now and that helps. If couldn't correct my vision, I think I might do something requiring less acuity. I spend a lot of time looking at film, prints and monitors and when I work without my glasses I miss stuff that I really don't want to miss. When I zoom in on an image I miss other stuff that's off the screen. is pretty appealing to me but building demolition and tree surgery are my backup professions.

1600x1200 on a 22" Monitor

I also have an SVIDEO set-up entertainment purposes, would be nice to have a 32" Monitor to grace my room, but alas as a TV it is no good for anything too detailed.
