What is the best colour for a beamer in a not-sufficiently-darkened room

I'm preparing a presentation and I know that the projector available is quite bad, and the room where I will give this presentation doesn't have proper blinds so it's relatively bright. My slides are very simple, white background, black text, and a third colour for some highlights. I wonder: does the hive mind know what this colour should be in order to be really visible and actually highlight my stuff, given the aforementioned conditions?

from whence the look of music videos from the late nineties?

Many music videos from the late nineties, six underground by the sneaker pimps being the most salient example to me, have a distinctive cinematographic feel and style to them, with very high contrast (super dark blacks and popping-out, almost oversaturated whites); a lot of murky brown/green and pops of red/blue. Does this style have a name? Is it a film effect or some kind of post-processing, or both? digital? Why was it so prevalent in the late-nineties, and, correct me if I am mistaken, mostly just for music videos? [more inside]

My computer sucks at brightness

I have a computer hooked up to my TV (a normal CRT), but any video played from the computer is too dark. Turning up the brightness or contrast settings on the computer just makes the "black" parts of the picture look grey. What setting am I looking for to fix this? [more inside]

Photoshop filter: contrast, luminance, fun!

I want to calculate the average contrast, luminance and any other interesting photo statistics (things that might be useful/important in psychophysics) for a bunch of images. I've heard that both Matlab and Photoshop can do this. I'm still trying to avoid learning Matlab, so Photoshop is preferred (I tried google, and some image manipulation books I found in the library, but neither were very helpful). [more inside]

Online app to bring out shadow details in photos?

Long ago, I recall seeing a link (maybe on MeFi, but I can't find it) for a website that displayed some pretty impressive technology used to bring out the detail from shadows in photographs. I seem to recall that there was an online version that you could use for testing (upload your photo and it would lighten the shadow areas). Does anyone remember this, and if so, do you know the URL?
