    I have started to use Smug Mug and noticed substantial differences in skin tones. I actually notice this on both PC and Mac but all of my pp is done (for now) in iPhoto.

    I wrote to Smug Mug about this. They responded in part with an article that Mac screens are incorrectly set to a "display gamma of 1.8" and that it should be reset to a gamma of 2.2 (not that I understand this). Here is the article:

    Is this change still necessary in view of the Mac updates? Is it recommended?

    If I do it, is it difficult? Can it be undone?

    Thank you for you help.
