enhanced text readability and graphics clarity.
Eliminate glare and reflections by:
•
placing your display in such a way that the side faces the window or
any light source
•
•
•
minimizing room light by using drapes, shades or blinds
•
•
using a glare-reduction filter
using a task light
changing the display's viewing angle
using a display visor, such as a piece of cardboard extended from the
display's top front edge
Avoid adjusting your display to an awkward viewing angle.
Avoid looking at bright light sources, such as open windows, for extended
periods of time.
Developing good work habits

Adaptive Contrast: This method usually increases the global contrast of
many images, especially when the usable data of the image is
represented by close contrast values. This allows for areas of lower local
contrast to gain a higher contrast. The method is useful in images with
backgrounds and foregrounds that are both bright or both dark. In
particular, the method can lead to better views of bone structure in x-ray
images, and to better detail in photographs that are over or underexposed.
