Use your mouse to RIGHT CLICK on an empty area of your desktop.
Select PROPERTIES.
Select SETTINGS tab.
Move the SCREEN RESOLUTION SLIDER to a different setting.
Click APPLY.
Keep trying different settings until you find one that is acceptable.
Then Click APPLY and OK and then reboot your computer.

That should do it.
Good luck and please rate this with 4 Thumbs Up if it was helpful.

Have faded black corners on images (intermittent issue, doesn't happen with every photo shot). I'm sure it's user error, but I can't figure it out.


Common problem and yes no to user error. You didn't say what lens you were using but I'm going to guess it's an 18mm on the wide end AND maybe you have a UV filter on it to protect the front lens element. What you are experiencing is what is called vignette. I hope my spelling was correct. What causes this is the extreme wide angle view of the lens, actually capable of seeing the edge of the lens barrel, there is another little problem that messes with your brain, you can't see this happening until after the picture is on the computer or you have enlarged it on the camera view screen and then zoomed in on the corner(s). The reason behind this is what you see in the viewfinder is only about 94% of the total image you will get on the view screen (LCD) or see on the computer monitor. So what can you do about this? There are a few things some you won't like. While taking a full wide angle shot remove the protective or polarization filter and shoot a "Naked" lens (correct for contrast in post processing) Stop the lens down to say F8 or F11 which will use more of the center of the lens but still give you the wide angle however you don't get something for nothing. You will most likely trade off shutter speed and need to use a tripod. Make sure if you are using a VR type lens that you shut the "Vibration Reduction" off when the camera is mounted to a tripod or you'll have some more issues. What I do at the 18mm end is shoot it without a filter at F8 or F11 and in post processing crop out the corners by enlarging the photo/print slightly. I call this shooting loose relying on the 6% I don't see in the viewfinder and shoot the scene knowing I'm going to "zoom crop" in Photoshop. Hope this was a help Happy New Year

How do you take a pic with the Nikon d60 where the background is blurred?


You're trying for what's called a narrow depth of field. DoF is controlled by three factors: distance from camera to subject, lens focal length, and lens aperture. The closer the camera is to the subject, the narrower the DoF. The longer the lens focal length, the narrower the DoF. The larger the lens aperture, the narrower the DoF.

Get as close to the subject as practical, and use as long a focal length as practical. I realize these two aims conflict with each other. For portraits, you want a focal length in the 50-90mm range and move in to fill the frame.

You want to shoot with as wide an aperture as you can. Unfortunately most lenses are not at their sharpest wide open. Also, the 18-55mm lens doesn't open up all that wide, f/3.5 at 18mm and f/5.6 at 55mm. To get the widest aperture, you can shoot in the P or A modes. If you don't want to leave the point&shoot modes, try using the Portrait mode.

Since you're not paying for film, I suggest you experiment with the different settings and shooting setups, moving closer and farther from the subject, using different focal lengths, and using different apertures, and see what results you get.

I have a new Acer X203H 20" wide computer monitor. All of my photos are streched wide, and everyone looks fat. Can I adjust this ?


You need to set the PC video resolution to 1600 x 900 for proper 16:9 wide screen format. But if your pictures that you taken with your camera were not 16:9, IE 4 X 5 then it will be stretched side way to fill the screen.

Issue with LG Plasma tv model # DU-42PX12X


Another "same probelm"

My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

Looking at Lenses


Sony has a wide angle as does Kenko and Centery Optics, they screw onto the front filter rings.  I am not sure of the quality though. B&H has them.
