I have received a few comments that this image looks grainy, pixelated, has artifacting, bad compression, etc.

I viewed this image on two CRT monitors and printed it out, and was very pleased with the skin tones, smoothness, etc.

Now that I am at work and am viewing this image on my LCD monitor, well -- YUCK!

This does not bode well since the CRT is going the way of the floppy drive. Any hints, tips, suggestions, voodoo or magic spells to make an image look on an LCD monitor the way it looks on a CRT monitor??

Ed, I use both CRTs and LCDs and the only way that I have found to make them look (almost) the same is by using my calibration tool to match them as best they can. I've also found that you get what you pay for in LCDs. Many don't support digital input and I had to look for a while to get one within budget.

Looking at your image right now on my 20" iMac, it isn't distorted at all.

danke

I'm not so much worried about the LCD monitor at my day job (though it does make tweaking my graphics for my websites a bit more problematic).

I've had 3 folks with iMacs tell me the image isn't degraded, so we'll see what the PC-based LCD and CRT users have to say.

Just looked at it on my IBM Laptop and my iBook it looks fine on them too.

I think that what I'm seeing in this image is JPEG mosaic artifacts. Is the image being scaled automatically somewhere in the chain?

I see the same as chip. If you look at the image bottom left region then you can see some cubing in the pixels. I am working on a CRT screen I pilled the image to Photoshop and zoomed in about 200% and you can see what is going on better with the details. Hoped that helps.

Windows XP
Vision 19" LCD
Color Calibrated

Looks good to me. Bottom left of the frame looks the way it does 'cause of DOF. At least that's my perception.
