Firstly, I want to thank any of the awesome people who are willing to help me.
I have a huuuuge problem with viewing my pictures, as they appear VERY differently on different monitors.
I need to make sure my monitor is configured to an optimum and I also need to make sure I use the right amount of contrast in my pictures so that they do not look too dull or "burn" people's eyes.
To start off, please read this: http://kitsukitty.deviantart.com/jou...ayed-272176284
After reading the journal, please tell me which picture looks better to you, if possible.
The first one appears dull on my computer, while the second one appears more contrasted, brighter, and attractive overall.
The problem: My "high-contrast" painting style looks different on other monitors!
I have tried calibrating my screen already, but it seems that I have done it badly. Some people find the second one to be too bright, while the first one is just fine! (and vice versa)
Usually, after I finish a picture, I duplicate the merged image and change the layer style to overlay. It's usually too bright at that point, so I use Curves in PS CS5 to make it look slightly darker.
I started using this method after one of my favorite artist put up a tutorial: http://kiwiesrulexd.deviantart.com/a...308129?q=&qo=&
She uses this method, and now so do I. (I know, slap me on the wrist for trying to copy her)
Although her pictures look just about the same on other computers!
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. D: Please help
