    Hi.

    Am a newbie to photography. Currently i use Canon s90. What is have noticed is that images when clicked look very bright on Camera's LCD screen but the same pic looks dull on my laptop. i have tried calibrating my Laptop too but things have not improved.

    Please help me out...!!

    Thanks

    Try turning down the brightness of the camera's LCD screen. Your tiny uncalibrated camera screen will be brighter and more contrasty than a typical display. You can't rely on the screen for overall image quality. Use your histogram to ensure the photos are nice and bright. Make sure you are using a consistent color space (i.e. sRGB on camera and on laptop). Make sure you aren't using a post processing program that automatically corrects your images (making bright photos dark automatically).

    Thanks a lot!!

    What i noticed today is that images look close to how there are seen in camera when i use my samsung monitor instead of my laptop screen!. But as u suggested, relying on Histogram is better
