my pictures for eBay come out too dark on the computer
they looked fine on my camera display
and then on the puter they seemed dark
how can I adjust the camera display so I have a better idea of how to compensate for the exposure?
I can adjust with Photoshop, but I would rather save me the effort and have it right, right out of the camera

Are you shooting in RAW or jpg formats?

Generally, the dispaly screen on the camera is not ideal for reviewing the actual image you have shot. You will be better served by downloading the images to the PC before printing.

Nevertheless, you can adjust the screen brightness:
Adjust the LCD monitor's brightness to one of five levels with the Set-up menu (Yellow) -> Select [LCD brightness] (5 levels).
Try to set to the same brightness as your PC monitor.
