OK, so I set my monitor back to factory default settings, which actually made it brighter, not darker. I ran through a couple monitor calibration sites, and everything seems ok. I even set the brightness on my monitor to ZERO to see if I could match the brightness (or lack thereof) in that shot and could not. So...why is that shot so dark?
I'm still going to brighten the blind a little, but this is bugging me. If that shot is too dark, then my shot when I upload it will be too, and it wont show what it really looks like when installed.
I'm using an old CRT monitor, which is a bit dark, and I'm not able to see any borders in the screenshot. A lighter wallpaper might help.
