About the photo:

The 15th century guildhall in Norwich occupies the northern side of the large market place, with the medieval church of St Peter Mancroft opposite and the art deco city hall to the west. The Guildhall is the largest city guildhall in England outside London, and is a wonderful example of Norfolk flint work construction. The bottom floor of the Guildhall is now occupied by a cafe, but the medieval council chambers on the upper floor can still be visited by arrangement, as can a Victorian court room created from the original Sheriff's Court.

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!
