I have a question..

.. I wanted to say "dumb" question.
However I was told no question is dumb, we'll see.

I asked way down the board but figured I would bring it up top.

Here is the rooster picture Kelly posted today.

Now my question...can y'all really see a rooster? or anything else for that matter? I can only see light above a "tree line" and darkness below it. I never could see anything when Fern posted his calf pictures. I have tried to adjust the brightness on my monitor and I can't . Does anyone have any solutions? My monitor is only 2 1/2 years old. I can see everything else just fine except for "dark" photos (or dark to me).

From a photographer's standpoint, automatic adjustments on cameras are wonderful until you run into too much brightness. It will be a beautiful sunny day, and the camera will adjust for the brightness instead of the subject. Thus, a really dark picture on a sunny day. I hate it when that happens. I'm using AOL, and can just click on 'file' in the upper lefthand corner, click 'open' then select and load the pic, and brighten it up and save it while still being online, quick and easy.

Oh yes there are dumb questions - not many but they're out there - i consider any question dumb if it can't be correctly and definitely answered by anybody. Like "Why is there air?" or this:

Get a photo editing program (most digital cameras come with free ones). Play around with the Brightness, Contrast, and Gamma settings. I can't remember which does what but you don't hurt anything by messing with them until the picture is right. Just make sure you have an extra copy to fall back on. And make sure the sunlight doesn't come in through a window and shine on the monitor screen, eventually ruin the monitor by making everything look dark.

Yep, I see it. It is a bit dark, but I can see it just fine. I couldn't tell you what the problem is that you can't see it though...

~Lenore    Posted 07-03-2004 at 19:18:16       [Reply]  [No Email]

I couldn't see it either, till I turned the lights out in this room. I changed it in my photo program and re-posted it. Don't let em fool ya, it WAS a bit dark :^)

Yeah, all the pictures from Cindis seemed this way. I don't know if it was just that overcast that day, or the developing was botched. They all seem kinda washed out of their color too. :( Sorry about that.

Kelly I already told ~Lenore you was gonna use a peach tree limb on her laigs over the pix being too dark.

~Lenore    Posted 07-03-2004 at 20:34:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
Now Burr you said " a peach switch"; now you have changed it to a whole tree limb!!
I am getting scaird!!

KellyGa    Posted 07-03-2004 at 21:16:21       [Reply]  [No Email]
My next door neighbor when I was a child would make her kids go pick a switch. That would be maddeneing to have to pick your own switch to be switched with!!! My dad was a belt man. :( I don't think anything we ever did was as bad as the punishment we got in the day.

I bet Kelly stripes ~Lenore's laig with a peach limb if she aint been seeing them daily chicpix.

~LENORE    Posted 07-03-2004 at 19:35:57       [Reply]  [No Email]
This is the first one of her chick pics that I could not see.
Her Buffs were real easy to see the specs were not as bright but I could see them.

I had a jungle scene on my desk top and it was so dark I could only see a snake head and a red bug.

you have'nt got your shades on do you?? When I forget my shades is on I have alot of pix too dark to see. ;^)

~Lenore    Posted 07-03-2004 at 20:00:53       [Reply]  [No Email]
Nope, wish it was that simple...
I thought maybe you computer geniuses would know of some secret adjustment somewhere in the settings that would help!!

Burrhead    Posted 07-03-2004 at 20:04:24       [Reply]  [No Email]
all I know how to do is hit the on and off button, and sometimes I even time that all wrong.

Burrhead    Posted 07-03-2004 at 19:11:02       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes Mam I kin see it. Pretty can't tell if it's a game rooster or a banty, (can't tell from size) but looks like a game right slap in the middle of the pic.

Donna from Mo    Posted 07-03-2004 at 19:10:55       [Reply]  [No Email]
I do see the rooster, a very stately-looking one, too.

Do not judge your monitor performance/brightness by what you find posted by posters..Got to places like Yahoo because they tend to quality controls. THEN,,you might learn the monitor needs some adjustment.
