Hi,

Do a forum search, as this has been discussed many times.

Generally, advice has been to underexpose the screen slightly - if the RGB numbers are 0,170,0, that's very saturated, but if you expose it so it's 10,180,10, that's less saturated, even though there's the same separation between the green and everything else.
