    use photoshop set your color space to us prepress. I find it is better to convert you images color profile to the default photoshop prfile then when printing use Image color match and turn of color adustment. do a couple test prints you may need to lighten your photo a bit to get the right brightness on the print but once you figure it out you should be fine. I usually print a test image at about 20-25% of the image size to make sure the colors are what I want then I print the final image in its true size. I also found that I was viewing my monitor from the wrong angle and therefore my printouts were darker than my monitor, I just adjusted my viewing angle and found I can usually get the colors right the first time. ICM is the best thing to use though, trying to print in the pther options will give you print outs that drastically differ from you screen.
