Well, I was screensharing when I saw it. I told the client how to set 
the gamma from the message box and we both saw it change. Now neither of 
us can do it. Maybe the card we were looking at happened to have a png 
on it instead of a jpg; the stacks have hundreds of imported images so 
it's possible they aren't all the same.

So if the gamma isn't the problem, do you know why the images would look 
different on different platforms, and between stacks and standalones? 
Here's what the client said:

"right now, you can't see any background at all on Windows; when you 
make it so that it can be seen on Windows, it's way too dark on Mac"

I think the change she's talking about is when we were setting the 
screengamma. If not, then I'm not sure what she did to "make it so it 
can be seen." I'll find out, but if you have any ideas I'd love to hear
