    Red face External Monitor attached to macbook is blurry
    I have a Macbook 13" (purchased new 2012) which I want to use with my existing monitor when editing photos.

    Monitor is ASUS HDMI VH222 attached via HDMI cable with Mac adaptor.

    The fonts are not clear (not a major issue as I mainly surf directly on MacBook) and photos are slightly out of focus (big problem as I am using monitor to edit photos!)

    Resolution is 1080P.

    Can you give me any advice re what I need to adjust. (Note I am somewhat clueless so please type slowly and assume complete ignorance!)

    The monitor is perfect with my ancient Windows laptop (attached via VGA).
    Thanks

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Sounds like the monitor is not set for its native resolution. Open the Displays preference panel and change the external monitor's resolution to the highest available.
