makes a big difference, I recently got a HP deskjet 6540 and it keeps the prints pretty close to the actual color depth. The paper and ink can also make a difference.
I must be missing something. I can use Gimp, Photoshop, or any of several other image editing programs to get exactly what I want on my CRT monitor. But when I print to an inkjet printer, the result is very different.
I understand that brightness and contrast might vary, but color balance is also very different between on-screen and print results.
How can I make adjustments so that on-screen preview will be reasonably close to the printed result? Is there a way to correlate screen and printer results as a saved profile? I'm almost raedy to go back to the real chemical and photosensitive paper darkroom I came up on.
