About the photo:

From the famous sub-tropical gardens at Inverewe, trails lead around the Inverewe Estate. One of these trails is a circular walk around Loch Kernsary, taking in wonderful views south to Beinn Airigh Charr. This is magnificent Highland scenery, and the ever-changing weather patterns mean you never know what to expect. Seconds before I took this photo it was grey and drizzling rain, then the sun suddenly broke through the rain and cast a golden glow over the land. Pure Highland magic!

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!
