    Hi Everyone.. I've got a lot to learn, but I noticed right off the bat that I need help with how my photo looks on my computer and then how it looks when I print it off. On my computer it looks good then when I print, its darker than I would like. Anyways I edited one alot brighter which looks bad on my computer but better printed out...

    Which looks better ?

    Take the photo that printed correct to you, open the same photo you printed and adjust your monitor to match the two.

    Also look into getting a moniter calibrater - that will allow you to calibrate your moniter to show the photo as it will look when printed

    Spyder express is 64 on adorama.com, its a simple calibration software for your monitor, It is also on bestbuy for 59, but out of stock, I am waiting to for it to come in stock at bestbuy, it has lots of good reviews, so you may want to check it out.
