Default monitor calibration

I was just reading a useful article regarding monitor calibration. If you have not tested your monitor you may not be seeing the photos as well as you think. Here is a link to one of many sites where you can test your monitors calibration:

Default Calibration

Thanks-this one's a lot simpler than others I've seen. I saved the page for future reference.

I use Adobe Gamma and it walks you thru pretty well.

What determines the image quality you see on your monitor? Obviously if you have a high-end monitor, that's a good start, but does a good video card or some other internal hardware/software also play a factor? The flatscreens over here display photos so much better than my monitor at the homestead...

One factor that determines image quality is the dot pitch. Basically, the smaller the dot pitch is, the better the image quality. Usually a dot pitch of around .26mm is good.
