Boris-- Just read your post. Kind of hard to read your shorthand, but it looks like your setup is what I suggested. I calibrated my monitor to gamma 1.8 rather than 2.2, but I don't think that should make as big a difference as you're seeing. I found (by making a second one and comparing the two) that my first monitor profile (made with Adobe Gamma) wasn't so good. Using the second one has improved my results. If your landscape image is coming from a PC, you might try resetting your Profile Setup such that the assumed profile is "sRGB". Then be sure to open a version of the image that hasn't yet been SAVED from Photoshop 5.x (saving it embeds the profile of your current working space). I've found that the characteristics of the source file make a big difference. I was getting beatuiful prints from the PhotoDisk target and from a professional stock art CD-ROM, but my own images from my film scanner had wied colors. Once I carefully constructed a set of corrective curves (which the scanner now uses when making a scan) I'm getting much better results. Your "surrealistic" landscape doesn't sound like the kind of thing that would come off a scanner, so don't know what the equivalent modification would be in your case. Not sure what else to recommend at this point. Good luck, and if you find a solution please share it. --Bill >Bill Fernandez: or any other kind souls - sos! > >Bill: Followed your refreshingly clean instructions 1-17 to a point, but >result: still total color mismatch between monitor and print.
