I was blown away by that one Bob. Why didn't I
think of it? Of course -- I was doo busy being blown away by making any adjustment at all!
I was also intrigued by the regions adjustment -- which allow adjustment to concentrate on the lightest and darkest (small number of regions) or overalll (high number of regions). I had missed that notion. I'll have to look at it all again.
Hey, Paul, consider buying a 15" MacBook Pro with the i5 processors and the dual graphics capacity. Max the RAM. Get the mini-DVI plug to plug-in the big monitor. Not as fast as the current top of the line desktop, but I'm pretty sure the new laptop would look like warp speed compared with your G5! I have a 2010 13" MacBook Pro with a 23" Cinema monitor, and it's great. The current model 15" with the i5 processors and dual graphics is two or three times powerful than that!
