I've moved this to the PhotoKey support forum. Please make an effort to post in the correct forum, as it'll help you get a faster answer in future.

Could you please clarify your problem? Which pictures are you referring to? Which picture in the foreground box? Can you show us some example of what you mean?

Well, for photo work you generally want the best and biggest monitor you can afford.

However, PhotoKey needs a minimum resolution of 1024x768 to function correctly. Any monitor and computer from the last 10 years should be able to do that, though, so you might want to check that you've got your desktop resolution set correctly.

The actual size of the monitor is irrelevant, its what resolution the monitor can support which is the key aspect. So when you go and buy one, note the actual resolution as well as the size.

Have you checked to see what resolutions your CURRENT monitor can do? It might just be that you've not got the resolution set correctly.

As Cogz says, the physical size of the monitor isn't important (that's just a matter of preference and how much you can afford), but the actual resolution it can display is.

Changing resolutions? Isn't that what you learn when you're about 10?
