Gamma Correction Explained

Gamma Correction Explained

Gamma correction matters if you have any interest in displaying an image accurately on a computer screen. Gamma correction controls the overall brightness of an image. Images which are not properly corrected can look either bleached out, or too dark. Trying to reproduce colors accurately also requires some knowledge of gamma. Varying the amount of gamma correction changes not only the brightness, but also the ratios of red to green to blue.

Monitor Calibration

Monitor Calibration

Stand ten feet from your monitor and examine the figure. If the smooth patch is darker or lighter than the background then you need to calibrate monitor gamma. Many computer monitors come from the factory preset for an office working environment which may not be ideal for viewing and editing photographic images. For color accuracy and consistency work in a darkened environment.
