What monitor resolution do you use?




At one time 800 x 600 was the most predominant. Lately I'm hearing that more people are at 1024 x 768 or higher. Stroke of Genius is designed for 800 x 600.

Cynthia, SOG looks just fine at 1280x1024. I have an Apple Studio Display (flat screen LCD) which I just love for photo reference display. it is at it's default resolution. 1024x768 just looks blurry and worse, so I use the default.

Garth,

I'm surprised. I would think that it looked very small. Thanks.

I have a 17" CRT Apple Studio Display monitor for my G4 and use 1024x768 as my resolution. SOG looks just great with that setting, although in checking my resolution I noticed that I had colors set to thousands rather than millions, so I just changed that. Wonder whether I'll see any difference now.

Garth, nice to see another Mac person aboard!

Cynthia,

I use a Dell 20" monitor with 1920x1200 resolution. SOG looks great on it. SOG ends up filling the center 1/3rd of my screen with black space filling out the screen on either side.

I use a laptop with a 15' 4'' wide lcd screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and that's fine for me.

I'll try to attach an image for you.

My Apple Monitor is set at 1920 x 1200. I like the high res for looking at photo reference.
