Photoshop 5.5's color calibration hasn't been significantly changed, that I can tell, from P5. Why did you believe that it was "much improved?" What part of it makes it "the most problematic area in all of digital photography?" Photoshop 5.5's notable changes have to do with masking and web images, near as I can tell. You might want to take a gander at a book called "Essentials of Digital Photography; Your Guide to Digital Photography and Imaging with Photoshop" by Akira Kasai, Russell Sparkman (New Riders, ISBN 1-56205-762-6). If you can't afford the rather expensive software and hardware to calibrate both monitor and print using ICC profiles, you'll find that the techniques for calibrating your monitor and optimizing your print results using the hardware and software you already have are about the best available. The other two books that form the core of any Photoshop library, Real World Photoshop and Professional Photoshop 5, have already been discussed here. What are you changing between test prints now to get the results you wanted? david - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
