    So I like to do post processing in CS3 and every time I print my pictures they come out way too dark. On my computer screen they look perfectly fine and not dark at all. I thought it was my printer at first, so I went and printed some pictures off on another printer and the same thing occurred. So how do I calibrate my computer so what I see on the screen is reflected in the pictures?

    +1 on that. I have the Spider3 Pro. Works great. I have three monitors calibrated with it.

    The other problem you may have is that you may not be using the proper profile for your printer/paper.

    I use a huey - the Spider is considerably more expensive, how much 'better' should I expect it to be?

    I seem to be getting good results with the huey, what does the spider do that the huey doesn't?
