Reduce monitor resolution to ease calibration
Authored by: kkL on Jun 26, '07 10:58:22AM

Isn't scaling causing color blending, which in turn spoils optical effect on which calibration is based on?

(instead of white/black/white/black stripes you get white/gray/gray/black/gray/gray, etc. so it'll be less different from solid gray than the same graphic in 1:1 to screen pixels)

Changing resolution doesn't cause that sort of antialiasing, because it isn't actually doing any scaling -- it's just making all the pixels bigger. You'd get the effect you're describing if you used the mousewheel-zoom thing via Universal Access.
