Paul, >If you come up with different printer driver settings, you can save those as >named presets. I don't know of any monitors that allow you to do that. I think that most of the near past, recent, and current monitors do allow user presets for a number of controls; but the number is limited to a very small number like 1-5 presets, including the default preset. These are usually in addition tot he factory presets. However, I do not think this alters your advice at all or makes you suggestions invalid in the least way. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Paul D. DeRocco Sent: Saturday, May 25, 2002 12:22 AM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: Choosing a new Monitor (was LCD Monitors) Personally, I'd still try to do it "right," because I generally save the massaged images just prior to printing, in case I want to print them again. If two years later I own a different printer, I don't want to load those images for reprinting, and find that they look different because I made a different set of monitor tweaks to compensate for the new printer. Another wrinkle is that you need different tweaks for different paper. If you come up with different printer driver settings, you can save those as named presets. I don't know of any monitors that allow you to do that. But if all you do is what you said, then it will probably work okay. -- Ciao, Paul D.
