About the photo:

Most people come to Conwy to see the wonderful castle, but don't forget that the old town has one of the most complete original medieval town walls in all of Europe. This view is from the west, where the A547 runs along the exterior of the old town and merges into Rose Hill Street.

Monitor resolution, or 'how can I tell what size image I need to use to fit my monitor?'

While we can't give instructions for every operating system, here's how to determine your monitor resolution in Windows XP and Mac OSX.

Windows XP - right click anywhere on your desktop. A menu will pop up. Choose 'Properties' from the menu. A window with several tabs will pop up. Click on the 'Settings' tab. Look at the numbers under the Screen Resolution slider. That's your current setting.

Mac OSX - click on System Preferences, then Displays, then the Display Tab (should be showing by default). Your current resolution will be highlighted.

Images are set to a gamma of 2.2, which is pretty much industry standard for image display and printing. The only trouble is that Mac monitors generally have a gamma set to 1.8 by default, which means that images MAY appear slightly washed out, or show colours not quite as intended. You can reset your monitor's gamma easily on a Mac. Do a simple search for 'reset gamma Mac' on Google. And in case anyone thinks we're putting Mac users second, let me reassure you that we use both Macs and Windows machines at Britain Express!
