Quick question: please go my journal itself and tell me if the subject lines are black or gray. I genuinely can't remember but I don't want the hassle of switching monitors again right now, and I'm convinced this is yet another error with my horrible new monitor (I've gone back to using my TV for the past week, but it's such a pain in the ass to have to switch it out so I can actually watch TV that I'm trying to course-correct. Only every time I go back, it looks worse).
Seriously. This thing hurts my eyes. It's like even the text is fuzzy and pixelated to the point where I can see, like, shadows of color lines. I've messed with all kinds of brightness/contrast options, but it remains infuriating that pictures with dark colors are so black you can't even see what's happening unless the brightness is at about 80, but then everything else looks utterly washed out until you dial it down to 20. The two sets of pictures I'm comparing have identical brightness/contrast when viewed through my original monitor and my TV-as-monitor. This should not be happening.
Oh! While you're here, would you take a look at this this pic and tell me what the contrast looks like to you?
Now compare it to this version, which is how much I had to lighten it just to make it look normal to me/the same way it did when I posted it originally.
And then tell me which one looks better to you.
