Color Calibration

First time for me here. I am running a G5 10.3.9 Mac and just purchased Mr. Lynch's "Hidden Power ......." book. I am running Photoshop Elem 2 and have noticed that when I print my pics they I am not getting what I see. I know I must calibrate my monitor but in the book there is process to do this by going through Photoshop. How?


Thanks

I use the Eye-one Display 2 and pretty happy with the results. Just a footnote, if your print doesnt come out right, it might also be because of the wrong printing profile and/or the wrong paper. Goodluck.

its a 200 dollar colormeter....it creates a profile for your monitor....

but again, to answer your question, the color pref pane in osx is much better then the adobe one
