    Thats ok justjennifer,
    I checked out your photo blog and the
    colors are displaying correctly is it maybe
    the color is off a little on your monitor??

    Because I see blue and dark red and
    many other colors just fine it don’t
    appear gray or black to me…

    P.S. great photo blog!!! :)

    Thanks gamehq. :)

    At first I also thought it was my monitor gamma, but since it’s adjusted for both my image editing programs, probably not. Since there’s really not much you or I can do about it, this is pretty much an “academic” problem. But, again, thanks for your time and input. :)

    plug in to my laptop and the 15inch is showing

    That photo’s background is always been light gray for me.

    What are you seeing for the background on “Grow”, which for me is, shudder, lilac?

    (Don’t get me wrong, I <3 lilac, just not on that photo.)

    curvy lines you’ll have to adjust your eyes to see them

    OK, those are shadows from the wheat.

    When Matt posted about Monotone in the April wrap-up, he mentioned that Monotone does its magic best when uploading BIG images. Which is fine except that image clarity suffers with all the resizing being done by your browser and/or wp. So my choice is to now resize my photos in an image editing program before uploading.

    FWIW-the early photos on my Monotone blog were uploaded larger than display size. They’re just as screwy as the new ones.

    Well, it’s like I’ve said before, the way Monotone determines the background color for a photo remains a mystery to me. It’s not something we can do anything about so…(shrugs). Thanks for your time gamehq and rain.

    Hi,
    Do i need to use the svn client to download the theme files from http://svn.automattic.com/wpcom-themes/monotone/ ? Because, i downloaded all these files through right click > save link as…and uploaded everything into the themes dir. I got theme installed, but facing following problems –
    1. Archive, About, Comment links give a 404 error
    2. How do you guys configure a home page (which always shows same START screen?)

    Also i wanted to know if there is anyway i can add more tabs apart from About and Archives.

    You’re in the wrong place. You need to head over to http://wordpress.org/support for help with self hosted blogs.

    I doubt the guys at wordpress.org will know anything about Monotone as it hasn’t been officially released for wordpress.org. You would be better off contacting the theme designer: http://eight6.com/2008/05/02/launched-monotone/#comments.
