Mac vs Windows for graphics

I was not sure where to post this question so Admin, Please let me know to relocate it if needed.

I have heard/seen graphics produced/edited on Mac's are far cleaner and much more vibrant then Windows machines. Why? What makes them so much better? (I am not a graphics expert but I am learning) I have been using Photoshop and Illistrator on a Windows box and pictures come out ok, even better when its vector. But it isn't anything like I've seen from a Mac machine. For instance this website
I am guessing the pictures are from a Mac. They have such rich colors, what makes the colors come out like that?
Please ask for further info if needed.

Hi silver,

These days the graphics quality difference between a Mac ands a PC is non-existent. The photos in the Gallery you mention are well taken and possibly with some colouradjustment done in Photoshop; nothing out of the ordinary and defiinitely nothing that you can't do in a PC.

One of the keys to good display colour is monitor calibration. Mac artists are more conscious about calibration than PC people and calibration tools for the PC have been, until recently, hardware/software combo solutions that did put them out of reach to the common user.

After trying several software-based tools for many years I've settled for the Monitor Calibration Wizard. It's FREE,  easy to use and, best of all, it does the job. You can download Monitor Calibration Wizard from:

Great, i'll try it.

What about how the pictures have rich colors? Is there a tool in photoshop to bring out colors in a picture?
Yes, the easiest is probable a combination of Auto Color, Auto Contrast, and Auto Levels. All those are found under the Image > Adjustments menu. You may want to look at the Curves option as well (under the same menu). Curves gives you a lot of colour adjustment power.
