now I may be going crazy but i think something has happened to my mbp's video/picture quality. many of my movies seem to not be nearly as clear as I imagined them being when I downloaded them and now some of my pictures on my background are starting to look the same way. Im not sure exactly how to describe the way the video/pictures look now, I know my moms digital camera has a setting that sort of looks like this. any ideas of how to fix it. the only thing i can think of that has changed in the last few weeks is I downloaded sims 1 and 2 but other than that I dont believe I have done anything different with my mbp. edit: not sure if I fixed the problem or just found a way around it but I went to displays under system prefs. added the display to my menu bar, and then selected 1440 X 900 millions instead of 1440 X 900 thousands. My colors seem to be a lot brighter and I dont have this issue with my movies and pictures.
