About the photo:

One of the great medieval churches of England, Norwich Cathedral stands in a peaceful enclave surrounded by stone walls, in the centre of historic Norwich. The cathedral was begun in 1095, after the see was transfered here to Norwich from Thetford. This view of the cathedral is taken from the green of the Cathedral Close, accessed through the Ethelbert Gate, at the south western edge of the cathedral grounds. Also within the close is the King Edward VI School, whose most famous pupil was Admiral Nelson. Nelson's statue stands inside the close, near the west front of the cathedral.

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!
