Monitor calibration
So many dark entries makes me wonder if we're calibrating our monitors. Most calbrated monitors will look darker than non-calibrated monitors, so perhaps images look fine on non-calibrated, but dark on calibrated.

Just did it as a matter of fact with Adobe Gamma. It's all I've ever used but I must admit to being a procrastinator when it comes to calibrating regularly. Should get into the habit I guess even if all I use is Adobe Gamma, it's still better than not doing anything at all.

busted! :eek:

every once in a while. how often should you do it?

and, having just sent you a few things, i have to ask, "you talkina me?" (please supply necessary accent)

hafta admit it got a little brighter around here just now when i did it. re my stuff, happy to rescan and resend if it helps.

You're "supposed" to do it weekly, but I do it semi-annually (sloppy, I know).

And I'm not talking to anyone in-particular. Just a generalized concern. No one need rescan anything they don't feel like rescanning :)

oops I didn't know you had to do it more than once.

Adobe gamma used here. But like others, not very often.

I use Adobe Gamma about every 2 months...
However, I haven't been able to produce prints on my Epson Photo EX that accurately depict what I see. I presume the difficulty is in the printer end of the process.

There's a thread or two here somewhere about printer profiles. Epson's use ICC, which is pretty good. Try using the 'search' for "profile" or "ICC".

We'll have to do a poll on printer calibration next :)

Yep. Adobe Gamma, but not very often, either. One more thing to add to my "do this every week" list.:)

I find it's best to do it at night and then turn off the lights so only your monitor light is illuminating the room. You don't get any exterior influences affecting what you see on your monitor that way.
