Mine are at 100 cd /m2

When I was working in a brighter room they were a bit higher.

My monitor is at 90 cd/m2 measured with the i1 Display Pro from X-Rite (also in a room with no direct light - not exactly a cave but not far off).

My screen measures at 200 cd/m2 (using i1Pro) which is probably a bit bright, but my room is reasonably lit.

For a simple comparison

A white sheet of photo paper when placed horizontal on a nearby table gives a metered exposure of 1/8th at f/8 ISO 400

My monitor screen, when displaying 100% white gives a metered exposure of 1/60th at f/8 ISO 400

So white on my monitor screen appears about 8x brighter than white on photo-paper in the room where my computer is.

But, if I was inspecting prints I'd take them somewhere brighter, which (coincidentally?) I find also meters at 1/60th f/8 ISO 400.

 

NB. I'm not saying my monitor setting is right or wrong, I'm just reporting what it is.

I think the important thing is to have consistency in the ambient lighting so it is not ideal to work in a room where light levels and colour of the light change significantly throughout the day.

Yeah, next thing you know people will be posting Off Topic stuff like " I'd like to feel free to point out on crystal-clear un-professional methods i'm seeing here about Alamy Measures issue management. " . . . oh . . . wait . . .

Yeah, unfortunately I do work in a room with highly variable ambient brightness and source. Unfortunately nothing I can do about it.

Mine is now adjusted to ~100

 

I do seem to have taken this thread somewhat off-topic though :D

Zooms  are linked with sales?

Not directly. Some zooms can be linked with a specific sale. Some sales may have arisen from a zoom but it is not clear as there may be along interval between the two. Many sales are made without the image concerned ever being zoomed at all.

 

There is an indirect link in that your past zooms/sales ratio may give a rough indication of forthcoming sales. Over the years I have had a ratio of one sale for every four zooms, although that seems to have reduced substantially in recent months. Different contributors will report different ratios and yours may be different again.

Zooms are linked with interest in your images, in that they are perhaps being considered for purchase. A step in the right direction.

Last week zooms (and therefore CTR) are improving a lot on my case.

Did they change algo? What's your experience?

My zooms have also jumped this week and I have also had the first sale of the month today

I had 7 zooms of eggs in supermarkets this morning. I see an egg sale in my future. 

 

Poco a poco, Lorenzo. I mean piano piano
