Task 1 How to Preview Files in Browsers and Platforms

Image files can look different on Macs than they do on PCs and from browser to browser. Uncalibrated PC monitors have a higher gamma setting than uncalibrated Mac monitors, so image midtones can appear darker when displayed on PCs. (see the Hint following this section). Differences in browser types tend to show themselves when you're building tables or working with other layout issues. When preparing files for the Web, it is imperative that you check each file on all platforms and in as many browsers as possible.
