Gamma Correction - Macromedia Director Basics

I am preparing a movie with a very large number (1000+) of photographs. I have been unsuccessful in finding clear information about how to have a single photo (as .jpg) look good on both Mac and PC systems. I assume that the best way would be prepare all final images on the PC and then have Lingo (or some external software) set the Mac to emulate the PC gamma setting. So far, I can't find the means, either within Director/Lingo or via third party software to do that task. I would be grateful for any leads on how to solve ...

    Default Gamma Correction

    I am preparing a movie with a very large number (1000+) of photographs. I
    have been unsuccessful in finding clear information about how to have a
    single photo (as .jpg) look good on both Mac and PC systems. I assume that
    the best way would be prepare all final images on the PC and then have Lingo
    (or some external software) set the Mac to emulate the PC gamma setting.

    So far, I can't find the means, either within Director/Lingo or via third
    party software to do that task. I would be grateful for any leads on how to
    solve this problem. Frankly, it is such an obvious, important issue that I
    can't believe it is not already solved and a means provided. If there is
    one, I can't find it at Macromedia or in any of the numerous Director/Lingo
    books I have bought.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Default Re: Gamma Correction

    Sorry to be so vague... I have seen a code extension, either an Xtra or
    Xobject for the Mac that could adjust monitor gamma, I think it was a
    non commercial freebie, good luck with the search.
