Get your monitor to accurately portray the colors of your digital photos
After I got over the desire to drop-kick my entire system, I learned it wasn't a problem with the printer or even the monitor. What I discovered was that each device (monitor, scanner, printer) sees and interprets color differently. Just like the colors of an image would look different if viewed as a print versus a slide, each of these devices produces color in its own unique way. The trick to solving this problem was to find the means to get them all to speak the same language.
The way to do this was by calibrating the devices—creating specific profiles and using them to maintain a color-accurate workflow.
