    this is more like helpful tips rather than infographic. It would be much easier ON THE EYES to have these as bullet points than infographic.

    I assume this graphic is intended as an object lesson for what not to do, since it’s barely readable. The correct format for that (and 99% of infographics) would be as an HTML nested list I can Ctrl-+.

    I think tip 1 should be for soi disant “designers” to stop using 8 pixel fonts for body text on web pages (and pastels for infographics).

    The irony…
    A chart on healthy eyes that’s hard to read and eye straining.

    One thing has me stumped which I’m not to proud to admit. I have never heard of “Reflective Lighting Schemes”. Since I have already figured out and implemented most of the recommendations here thought I would try that suggestion as well. After not finding it in my computer settings I Googled it. What I found was this list of suggestions has been reprinted, almost verbatim, dozens of times, in some much easier on the eyes formats, but no suggestions as to what the settings are or how to achieve them.

    I did find some very interesting sites that are very informative about light and color theory which may help with my photography.

    One of the reprints of this article actually contains a footnote which says to do a search online or contact the manufacturer for information about “Reflective Lighting Schemes”. They didn’t mention which manufacturer though, the computer, the software or the monitor. The fact that they don’t offer information about how to do it tells me they couldn’t find the answer either.

    Anyone figured it out? Or is it just a catchy, geeky phrase with no meaning?

    It makes me think of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” where something doesn’t really exist but everybody is to proud and sophisticated to admit it.
