When looking at images with a watermark. The kind that are semi transparent but still able to be recognized it is not showing up. I look at the same image on a regular old "crappy" monitor and *BAM* there is the watermark. I think I've tried everything, I am at a loss. Any help would be appreciated. Do I need to recallibrate the monitor, how do I do that?
Calibrate in the monitor menu the RGB values to sRGB space and disable all optimizations (movie mode, text mode...). Leave it in "Normal".
Also set carefully the contrast in the monitor to something like 60% and choose the right GAMMA in the image editing software.
Make sure you are using the native resolution of the LCD and check in the user's manual how to do the adjustments because all monitors are different.
All those settings are one-time programmable, once you got the right settings they don't need to be changed again.
