IMAGES AT MY SITE ARE NOT TOO DARK TO SEE
first major difference to discuss? I've noticed that many screen
captures at professional gaming sites are far, far too dark.
So dark that one cannot even make out what is in the image. I
have therefore taken some of the images into photoshop and have
increased the brightness level.
