About the photo:

The A4155 runs along the north bank of the River Thames, through the leafy edge of the Chiltern Hills. About 2 miles wet of Marlow-on-Thames it passes through the hamlet of Medmenham. On one side of the road is the 12th century church of St Peter and St Paul. Opposite the church is the attractive Dog and Badger inn. This traditional inn was built in the 13th century, possibly to serve an abbey that once stood by the river. The inn was rebuilt in 1590 and restored in 1860 by the notorious Hell Fire Club.

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!
