"CNX2 stretches image on wide monitor"


El Sobrante, US
          

I upgraded to a wide screen monitor a while back and I've noticed that CNX2 stretches the photo on my screen on the horizontal dimension. This is true for both portrait and landscape orientations. This is a problem on the displayed image only; it doesn't affect the photo when it is printed. Does anyone know of a setting that I can use to get the image to display correctly? I just checked and Lightroom does the same thing, so maybe it has something to do with the monitor setup. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

It sounds like your monitor preferences to me. Try an alternate aspect ratio.

Hi, Eric.

Are you talking about a setting in CNX2, or something in Windows 8? Can you tell me where to find this setting? Thanks.

In Windows 8, go to the Control Panel.
Select Appearance and Personalization/Display/Screen Resolution.

Choose the dimensions that establish correct proportions.

I have several monitors that I use with my laptop. When I change monitors I have to change the screen settings for one of the monitors.
