   11 The gamma measurement image (gamma-test.gif) included in the xearth
   12 source distribution allows you to directly estimate the gamma of your
   13 display system. After loading the gamma-test.gif image for viewing
   14 using your favorite image viewer (e.g., xv, xloadimage), stand about 6
   15 feet away from your monitor and decide which column of the image comes
   16 closest to having equal brightness in the top and bottom halves. The
   17 number under this column is the gamma of your display system.
