    Indo-African Jt. Issue: When you look at stamps of new issues on a
    computer screen they look different from what you receive from philatelic bureaux. Physical stamps look much darker than what you first saw on the backlit high-contrast computer screen. The fine details & color
    differentiation is missing. Is the computer aided designing the culprit?
    FOOD FOR THOUGHT for the technical team at Nasik!

      Pictures on screen obviously differ from the pictures on paper.On screen display depends on several factors including quality of device, quality of picture/scanning,editing,and of course the person who is taking a picture.


    Thanks Philatelist. I suppose, what appears on sites is Scanned & not
    photographed (like from a SLR camera) thus taking the men behind the camera out of equation! Anyway, I am mentioning 4 issues from the last two years, can you point out such DARK stamps issued before yrs. 1947 to Yr 2005??
