I have an acer 19" widescreen monitor and the pics look stretched on my screen compared to a regular monitor, is there ant way to change the settings so I may look at the pics in a normal way?
Thanks Bill

Check your resolution setting in "Display Properties". (Right-click a blank area of the Desktop and select "Properties"). If you can't find a satisfactory setting supporting the correct aspect ratio of your monitor, you may have to change the graphics card for one that does. If the monitor is LCD type, bear in mind it's manufactured to work optimally at the resolution stated in it's documentation. Straying from this setting will lead to image impairment.

It's also possible that the monitor hardware controls themselves may need adjusting for height and width. There's usually a series of buttons on the monitor coupled with an on-screen menu.
