There are three computer settings that will affect the quality of the photographs that appear on your screen -- screen resolution, color depth and internet browser capability.
SCREEN RESOLUTION -- Most of the images on this site as set to a maximum resolution of 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high. Keep this in mind before you view any images. If the resolution on your computer is set higher than this (ex. 1024 x 768), the images will appear small on your screen. If the resolution on your computer is set lower than this (ex. 640 x 480), the images might appear too large for your screen. If your computer is set for 640 x 480 resolution, the SUBCLUB banner will reach all the way across the screen. At 800 x 600 resolution, the banner reachs 3/4th of the way across the screen. Usually, computers are set to the lowest resolution at the factory, but can be set to a much higher capacity in a few minutes time, without any additional equipment. All you might need to do is load a new color driver from the disk that came with your video card. For more information, contact your computer seller.
COLOR DEPTH -- In addition, the quality of the images in this section will depend greatly on the color capabilities and settings of your computer setup. Standard VGA settings, using 4 bit (16 colors), will give horrible results on your screen. Eight bit (256 colors) will give marginally acceptable results. Sixteen bit (65,536 colors) will give fine results, and 24 bit (16,700,000 colors) or higher can't be beat. If you see bands of color in the last "B" in SUBCLUB, instead of a continuous rainbow of colors, then either your display is set to a low color setting or your browser does not support high color display. To increase the color settings on your computer, read the manual that came with your computer, monitor and video card. Usually, computers are set to the lowest color setting at the factory, but can be set to a much higher capacity in a few minutes time, without any additional equipment. All you might need to do is load a new color driver from the disk that came with your video card. For more information, contact your computer seller.
INTERNET BROWSER -- The images in this section may or may not appear correctly on your screen depending on the web browser that you are using. We recommend Netscape 2.0 (or an equivalent) or higher. If your browser does not support graphics, you will not be able to see any of these images. Even if your browser DOES support graphics you will not be able to see anything unless your browser can read the particular types of images at this site. And even if you CAN see the images, they might appear in a low-quality. If you cannot view these files or you are not satisfied with the quality, you might consider upgrading to the latest version of the web browser that you are using -- or switch to another browser. Contact your seller. PLEASE, don't blame us if you bought your web browser from Bill Gates's Microsoft Corporation (or someone who sells his stuff). Even if your computer is set to a high color depth, you might still see banding in the SUBCLUB banner if your browser does not support high color settings. You might be able to change these settings in the OPTIONS section of the browser, or you might need to update to a newer version of your browser.
