If you take pictures from back of cockpit with side screens they don’t look as good as when you are sitting in; this is because you are looking along the side screens rather than direct on as when your head is in the right place.The best picture I notice on my website is under Display, phase 6.
Couple of other tricks relating to bezels; my front screens overlap at the centre so you see only one bezel width. Similarly my side screens overlap the front screen, not butted up. In previous setups I have found silver tape disguises bezels, must get some more for mine. It reflects sky colours a bit.

In cameras.cfg change the following settings in Camera 1
SnapPbhadjust from ordinal to swivel
SnapPbhreturn from true to false
PanPbhadjust from ordinal to swivel
PanPbhreturn from true to false

You can then use shift plus arrows or shift plus +or- to get fine adjustment of pan and zoom to get spot on alignment.
