I have included a lot of photographs on this site. Some are, arguably, art, some are silly, some are just pretty pictures. It is a bit of a mishmash, I know, but that reflects my approach to life.
I am not a Photoshop or website expert, and encourage comments regarding layout, and feedback on how the images are rendered. It is inevitable that different computers/monitors will reproduce these images differently, and I will do my best to see that they come through well. I am still tinkering.
A lot of computer monitors are not decently calibrated. This grayscale image might give you a rough idea whether yours is in the ballpark:
You should be able to see the different grays--or at least 2-25--separately.
Other calibration images are here and here.
I've noted recently that some Macs are still being shipped with their gamma (a measure of midtone contrast) set to 1.8, despite the fact that the Apple tech site itself recommends 2.2 (the accepted standard for the web).
So a number of my photos look too light on some Macs.
The first calibration image linked to above includes a gamma chart. If you want to change your Mac to 2.2 gamma, do this: Apple symbol > System prefs > Displays > Color > Calibrate. Choose 2.2 Television Gamma (leave White Point on Native). You can always go back to 1.8 Standard if you don't like it. Note that the next Mac operating system (Snow Leopard) will come defaulted to 2.2 gamma. Most art websites are optimized for 2.2. You can adjust your brightness higher afterward if you find it pleasing; brightness is not the same as gamma.
I decided to have the large photos open as "files" instead of "pages", because if I put them on a Homestead "page" (which would allow text and color), they are fixed in size. As files, they can be sized by your browser to fit the window that is open on your screen. At least that is the way I understand it...
