hi I have 2 widescreen monitors on my PC with a matrox parhelia dual-screen graphics card. Both monitors are set to 1024x768, 60 hertz. If I open an image of a perfect circle or a square I can see that the image is stretched horizontally. Not hugely, but noticeably. Maybe 10-15%. The monitor options dont allow to squeeze or stretch the image, so its not that that is the problem. Where am i going wrong? is it a set-up somewhere? or have i just got duff-monitors? Perhaps theres a horizontal-magnetic pull in my room Im not aware of!!!!
Id love to get some help on this 'cos i use my computer primarily for using photoshop, so an accurate perspective is kind of crucial.
A resolution of 1024x768 is a standard resolution NOT a widescreen one. Try some of the other settings in "Display Properties, Settings" to get a better fit. Mine has options such as 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x800, etc.
