Just wondering if the site council could show us a breakdown of the computer type (Mac or PC) that visit DPC. that way we could process our photos leaning towards the majority?

Cheers

that may be helpful towards questions on edit images, we would know which platform each other is on.

maybe putting this option in the profile page where you add your camera info at.

I actually would like a breakdown of the total of DPC users. they can detect which platform which resolution etc that the users are on.

Why would photos displayed on Mac be that much different from these displayed on PC?

Two different users could have their monitors set with totally different calibration/gamma settings, regardless of mac or pc.

Edit to say that 'screen resolution' would be quite relevant. If 1024*768 is popular, then there may be some advantage to landscape orientation over portrait in challenges.

Actually I would say a big chunk of people on DPC have not altered the gamma on their PC

like I said before this is a cool idea and it would be even cooler if this could be made preference on your profile preference page then it would show right under your name & camera that if you were on mac osx or pc-windows, this way people with a computer or photo edit questions could help out much easier.

Like jhonan, I would like to know how you would process differently for each platform.

FWIW I run a Mac, but usually have it set to a Windows Gamma setting especially when submitting photos to DPC. I use an application called Gamma Toggle that allows easy shifting between Windows and Mac gamma settings. Here's a link to it.
