I used to have (2) 20" and (1) 24" using desktop. Since desktop crashed, i have to replace it with laptop HP and hoping it provide convenience. Current setup now is dual LCD : (1) 24" HP and (1) 20" Dell.

I'm going back to new desktop soon...and must be at least 3 LCDs. One for PS5, 1 for Adobe bridge or Lightroom , 1 for web browsing, email...etc...

Dual screen for me too. Now that I am used to it, it's hard to go back to single monitor.

Side question: I don't think LR is able to separate out the control panels from the image viewing screen unlike PS which you devote one monitor for image and put the adjustment panels on the other monitor if so desire.

Anyhow, what's your LR set-up for dual screen?

I have often wondered this, most labs want sRGB files for non-inkjet prints.

I got a wide gamut screen purely because for future proofing my pictures I edit in prophotoRGB and may as well see more of the colour space I am editing in.


Can anyone clarify this for me please ? There is good deal on U2713HM on Newegg but it is sRGB and not wide gamut screen so will it matter in the end to go with U2713H which is wide-gamut ?

I use dual monitor setup for easy operation. One 24" as secondary and one 27" as the main editing machine.

Geeeez. Y'all are using some BIG monitors! I'm using a single 17" monitor. (Upgraded from my previous 15" that went out.)

This dual monitor could easily satisfy my online poker playing and editing at the same time issue!! I feel like I would get confused very easily with anything more then 2 monitors! But Spencer, WOW! What a workspace. Seriously...drool!

I bought a 30" samsung xl30 a few years back (what a monitor) it was expensive and they've discontinued it, now i wish I had bought a dual set up, it's easier to snap images together and yes playing online poker at the same time is a big plus

Dual screens first, then size. Productivity increases with multiple screens before bigger size increases productivity.

Or go with both

Here's my desk -- (2) 20" dells rotated, (1) 30" in middle

I was on a 19" unless 6 months ago. With all but a 30" (16:10) you don't get all that much extra height unless you want to rotate the screen each time with portait images - obviously helps for landscape images though way less zooming in and out and geat for multiple images up at once deciding on the best in LR.

Moving to a 30" has been amazing, fits the 3:2 ratio very well, anything with 16:9 ratio just doesn't make sense to me.

I've only worked with 4:3 monitors, never with 16:9 widescreen, so not sure how I would feel with a narrow monitor. You would think the 4:3 would be better with portrait mode shots. There are still some 4:3 monitors around; not sure if I should consider those for a new acquisition.

I was tempted to seek out another 4:3 because of this issue but a 30" does give more vertical real estate than my 19". If I am in PS with a vertical shot I rotate it but a 30" monitor is a bit of a monster and rotating it is a bit of a pain. 4:3 can either be good for flexibility or jack of all orientations and master of none depending on your point of view, ideally you have a second monitor in portrait orientation for max flexibility. The in-vogue style for weddings these days seems to be all landscape orientation shots (and vsco actions) for some reason so I guess this bothers a lot of people less - still don't understand how 16:9 is ever a good choice though.

I was looking at this size issue the other day. What I found is a 19" [diagonal] 4:3 monitor will give you a viewable screen height of 12". To get a 12" screen height in a 16:9 monitor you have to go to a 24" [diagonal] monitor.

It seems to me that 4:3 monitors are more sensible for photo editing. I don't know how big you can get in a 4:3 monitor nowadays. Dell sells a 20" diagonal 4:3.

I would hands down say 2 monitors over 1 any day.
Speeds up work flow great deal in my experience.

If I tried to go back to one monitor no matter the size, I would feel like I was working with one hand tied behind my back.
