Optimal Viewing and Monitor Calibration

For a more accurate viewing experience, adjust your monitor using the three simple steps and the graduated gray bar.

First, adjust your monitor's contrast to the maximum setting, and reduce it until you see a separation between the white (farthest left) and the light gray blocks next to it.
Second, adjust the brightness until you see a slight separation between the black and dark gray blocks on the far right. The black block (farthest right) should be as black as possible.
Finally, look for any color cast in the white and gray tones. These tones should appear neutral in color. Monitors tend to have a magenta cast to them until they have warmed up for about 15 minutes, so if the bar looks pinkish to you, wait a bit if you want to see colors more accurately.
