I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I finally got hold of a calibrator and ran it on my system but now my highlights (on some photos but not all) are splotchy and broken up. Mostly its high key skin tones and some bright backgrounds. I followed the directions as closely as possible and even ran it a second time with the same results. So no problem (I'm thinking) I'll just go back to my default monitor profile but I still have the same problem so does anybody have any idea what I've screwed up? I never noticed this happening before I tried to profile. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, David

It maybe that files set up on your uncalibrated monitor, were set up to look good on that monitor. Now that you've calibrated the monitor the results of a badly set up file are coming to haunt you.
It is fairly easy to get an image to look good on most monitors. Its also fairly easy to get a closed loop system such as one computer, one monitor and one printer to produce good consistant results... the problems really start when you are outputing to a number of different devices or your files are leaving you control and going onto different systems... Thats when calibration is absolutely critical.
Try creating a perfect file from scatch on your newly calibrated monitor.

Try this link:http web page
I have a very small computer set up running XP and mainly printing on a Epson R800 on my laptop the prints come out perfect decided to change on to my desktop computer and get a faster result the results were bad colour matching and not a patch on the results I was getting with the laptop on the above link
their is a calibration sequence for CS and monitors the settings were copied to exactly the laptops settings and still over dark after using the above link and recalibrating 4 times I got it right the graphics moniter was too bright and needed to be adjusted
hope this can help you
regards

If you calibrated and profiled your display correctly. The image you see in a properly set icc-aware application (like PS) is the correct image. If you notice artifacts, like banding (as you may seem to have), there are two possible causes:

1) You use a bad performing display and it cannot be calibrated and profiled without artifacts (like many cheaper LCD screens). It’s time you buy a better display. The image you are seeing is the best you can see. Sometimes is helps to use settings more closely to its native characteristics (gamma and color temp) while calibrating.

2) You see the artifacts you made when you made big corrections on a low-bit image. You cannot correct these and you need to use a backup image and start all over, but now on a correctly calibrated and profiled display.

It’s a fundamental mistake to use a bad profile because it looks better on your screen. You’re only fooling yourself.
