so the pictures I send off to be printed will look the same as the ones on the screen?
anyone know how?
Photoshop CS comes with a program called "Gama" (I think) that helps to calibrate your monitor. There are commercial products (I don't remember the name right now) that you can purchase the has a sensor you put over the monitor that does it. They range from around $100 to about $300.
There are a couple of shareware programs but I have no experience with them.
Get a Pantone Colorvision Sypder. Keep in mind where you are sending them to be printed. Call that company and ask them what to do for color management. They might give you specific gamma values and color temps to set your monitor too, as well as a printer profile to use with photoshop.
