okay, first, download the super small jpg file above and view it full-screen. Please do not use Image-editing programs to open it, such as Photoshop, CorelDraw, etc. Just use your Internet Explorer or ACDSee or other internal thumbnail viewer (and please do not modify the gamma option in your software.. if you do, then set it to default values before viewing)

Then, choose one row that you think is the most suitable gamma ramp for your monitor or eyes ^^. How to decide? Simple enough, each row is made of ten thumbnails, each are different shades of black (but in an orderly difference, which is 10% decrement from the leftmost box). Choose one row that has the most evenly distributed shades of black. Another way to decide is to compare the first two boxes, if you can distinguish them clearly, then it's the right ramp, but please choose the darkest possible row.

Why? Because the correct brightness setting will help the wallers (including myself) to make wallpapers with the right gamma to suit your desktop well. Different monitors and eyes have different gamma ramp/gamut, so by conducting this little research I hope my next wallpapers are not going to be too bright/too dark, and I hope this can be a reference for other wallers also.

Pardon my crappy English. And I will conduct the color calibration ramp sometime soon.
Ciao!

edit : please mention your monitor make and model, if possible ^^
and I might update the image because I found out that the 3rd and 4th row has a very steep difference (about 12.5%) :\ dunno why.... (damn Corel!)
gah I'm in office now so it's not possible to update... I'll get to this soon after I get home... >.<

Hm... I was kinda having a fight between 4 and a bit of 5 but I noticed how many different distinguishable shades could be seen on 4

Therefore - 4 is the magic number here KorganoS - whew, what an eye-popper - lol ^^

Mine is 5 :D My monitor is by Sony, but it's a really old sucker (I stole it from my Dad's Windows 95 computer) ^^ It's a flat monitor (not a flat panel!) so I don't get much glare. I have no idea what the model is. XD

I suppose this could be helpful for wallers... Hehe, but I LIKE blinding people with bright walls. :P XD

I have to say either 4 or 5 but I prefer 4 since there are a variety of shading.
My monitor is a Compaq fs7750 color monitor & model number: pe1160. Hopes that's right~

I'm interested to know how to use the results, once they're in. It seems like row 4 is the most common; so, how do I make walls using that knowledge? Is there some way to adjust my monitor or Photoshop settings to reflect this?

Very interesting idea, by the way, I think this will be very handy. ^^

sorry for the late reply ^_^'
actually this thread serves 3 purposes :
1. Manual gamma calibration
2. gamma comparation
3. Reference gamma

(1) Manual gamma calibration
- Pick the number you want,... usually you should pick the number most voted by other ppl... in this case, four (4)
- view the image full screen
- adjust your monitor until the leftmost box in the 4th row is a darkest possible shade of black
- adjust your monitor until the rightmost box in the 4th row is a brightest possible shade of white
- try to adjust your monitor to make the shades in the 4th row as evenly distributed as possible...
- as a result, your monitor is calibrated to the same gamma with most other ppl have... that way your walls will not be too bright/dark

(2) Gamma comparation
when you think other ppl submit a wall that is too dark/too bright you can :
- compare your gamma and that person's gamma
- give a precise advice on reducing/increasing his wall's brightness (you can give precise advice in percents, because each of the boxes in my gamma image is differentiated by 10% each...)

(3) Gamma reference
- you can see how dark/bright other ppl's monitors/systems are...
- you can give advice on setting the right gamma for that person...
- ppl can refer to this gamma reference to find the most suitable gamma ramp to make the walls/images they have downloaded from here to suit their desktop well... (who wants wallies that are too bright/too dark anyways.... and most of the time, it's not the author's fault)
