    survey: your screen resolution

    hi, I'm planning to make my portfolio site and I just wanted to know what's the most common screen resolution artists use.

    Carefull. Web design resolution usually gravitates around 1024x768 (if you're really talented you can try and make it work for 800x600).
    I'm usually at 1280x960 x 2 or
    1600x1200 + 1280x960

    pvrhye, tgfx, gallon, Lim : Wow all you guys use a different ratio than 1,33. Don't you find it difficult when you draw ? I find the squashing / stretching to be too much, especially when I want my proportions to be correct. How'd you do it ?

    1280x1024+1280x1024, or even 1200x1600+1024x768 for shits and giggles.

    hmm, never noticed... I just assumed the numbers added up.

    EDIT: checked 1280 x 960, my squares were all tall rectagles, Guess my monitor is calibrated for 1280 x 1024

    1400 x 1050 17" CRT (Primary)
    1024 x 768 15" CRT (Secondary)

    Gonna add a third sometime soon, just so my setup will be more ridiculous than yours.

    And to answer the aspect ratio issue, My monitor res is dissymilar to the regular layout, but at a res that high, I'm willing to lose a little screen real estate. So, I have a little dead space at the top and bottom of my monitor. However, at that res, and with two monitors, it's not a big deal.

    My tablet only works on the one monitor, but again, that's not a big deal either.

    Also, I still use the my onboard vga for my main monitor, and the graphics card that my secondary runs on is new, but the architecture is about 5 years outdated, so that's why it cost about $10. Pretty fun trick, considering you could have a secondary monitor for like $40 altogether.

    *EDIT*

    wow, I just changed the res of my main monitor down to 1152x864, just to see what it would be like if my monitor were aligned in the proper aspect ratio. It's kinda cool having things go between the two monitors and stay the same size.

    Everything looks HUGE at this res though, so I'm gonna change it back.

    Yeah, I'm shocked at the number of people who use 1280x1024 on CRT monitors - it's not a proper 4:3 aspect ratio, and it squashes everything. If you're using 1280x1024 on an LCD or TFT monitor, you should be fine, since they're intended to run at that res.

    I run at 1280x960 myself, since that's a proper ratio for a CRT monitor

    that´s exactly the reason why i just switched to 1152x864 a few weeks ago
    even tho 1280x1024 is actually the recommended res for my screen.

    are you really really sure that you're not just used to seeing broad rectangles?

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure, I have a bit more deadspace on the side than on the top and bottom though.

    Switched to 1280 x 960, took some serious monitor recalibration though.
