Glossy no good for image editing
Authored by: riikkagone on Oct 16, '08 10:28:26AM

I too like the look of the glossy screen for viewing images and movies, but it's absolutely useless for image editing. I currently use a MacBook Pro with a matte screen for all my initial edits on my wedding photos using Aperture, then they move to my wife's PowerMac for the final edits and culling. I mainly deal with color correction and balance for my edits and the glossy screen makes that impossible to do.
We also have a MacBook with a gloss screen that we use at shows for displaying our photos and it looks fantastic, but we need need the matte option for actually working with our computer and not making it a glorified slide projector.
