Hi again,

Having just got a new computer I find that my pictures (printed) do not match the colours on screen or in the real world.

Can anyone please help me with the correction procedure for this.

I have a Canon EOS300D and the printer is a Canon i950.

Whatever I did on the old computer some 3 years ago I have forgotten..

Help please...

Regards Princy

Princy,

It's not enough to make your printer match your screen.

The first thing that's needed is to get the monitor calibrated to a known standard. If you don't do this, then no one else will see exactly what you see and they won't have the same impression of your work. I use a Spyder to do this, but now there are several companies that make good calibration packages and they're not expensive. A monitor needs to be re-calibrated every month or so.

Once that's done, you need to find the correct ICC profiles for the combination of your printer and paper (and sometimes even ink) you're using. You can get hardware and software to profile your printer as well, but I've found the results to be really good with a calibrated monitor and off-the-shelf ICC profiles for the printer/paper I'm using.

Hope this helps...

Eldor

You might try searching through the forums on the Rob Galbraith site. This question comes up often and there are always reviews/comments there about it.

I posted some rather lengthy explanations and how to's on the subject of desktop color management on Mechapixel not too long ago ... Mechapixel is kind of a humor oriented site for many people with interests in imaging, graphic arts, photography and creativity in general ... But there are a lot of useful threads on a variety of topics, including some photography.
Here's a direct link to the thread discussing Color Management issues.
You may need to register an account with the site to see the forums, I'm not sure. If so, it is free, and it's a pretty fun site, hope you get a chance to check it out.
