    While on a blog on DeviantArt.com I came across an article that talked about the importance of monitor settings. They had some tips but, nothing very specific and I am worried that people will not see what I see. Yes, I know not everyone's is the same but, I don't want my photos to look bright while they look dark to the majority of everyone else. What do you suggest I put as a general rule for monitor settings? I thought of bumping up the contrast and brightness. But, should I put my RGB levels to the max or leave it where they are.

    What you want is a monitor color calibrator. Prices range from under $100 to over $300, or if you have a Mac, they have built-in monitor calibration tools.
