    White rim around brushstrokes?

    A few weeks ago, I noticed that every brushstroke I make in CS5 is surrounded by a thin whitish glowing "rim". It is not very noticeable when looking at the image face on, but if I tilt my laptop screen an inch in any direction, it becomes very pronounced.

    The really odd thing is that it's even whiter than pure white. For instance if I draw upon a blank white background, the rim glow looks white and the background looks slightly grey in comparison.

    This seems to happen with all brushes, no matter how hard or soft, no matter what opacity or flow, whether with a tablet or mouse. I did a few searches over the last week and found nothing (probably because "white rim" isn't the technical term for what I'm trying to deal with).

    Any ideas?

    A printscreen would help, kinda hard to figure the problem.

    Well, I have a suspicion that it's a problem with my screen (gamma maybe?) and so a print screen would be useless. I'll try though, since a PS problem will be an easier fix than fixing my screen. I'll post one a bit later.

    Could it be some sharpening option in your monitor? Or is it just optical issue? Try using info-palette: if the values are same, it's the screen. Does it appear in any other case than with brush tool?

    What is info-palette?

    I don't think it's a sharpening setting on my monitor. It only started recently (that I've noticed), I haven't change any settings. It happens with the brush tool and any shape tools or stroked paths. Could there be some aliasing going on that my monitor is screwing up?

    info-palette is a place in ps where you can check values.
