Welcome hyborn.

First off, i'm not familiar with that program, in fact i'm a bit of a luddite with anything techie :lol: but you won't get a true picture of your images (at least as far as colours) without a calibrated screen.

Hopefully you'll get some help from the more knowledgeable members.

Thanks OldCarlos - Im loving having a good play and getting back into it a bit - calibrated screen what are you meaning here - Im just using my good old laptop but thought it should look the same no matter what programme you open it with on the same computer/laptop I look forward to learning more from others
