Judith, The short answer is that using appropriate software and systems, one matches the behavior of printers, scanners, monitors, cameras (essentially any device in the imaging chain) and related software with its associated media and other imaging-related materials to produce repeatible output that remains faithful to a standard or ideal. At its most basic, when you select the type of paper to be printed on (plain paper, 360 dpi inkjet, premium glossy photo paper, etc.) you are issuing a set of intructions to the printer to modify its printing behavior to match that particular paper's 'profile.' However, sometimes the results of this practice just doesn't satisfy certain anal-retentive personality types, and they feel the need to change something in their search for printing Nirvana. Thus, with each tweak of the imaging chain, one introduces elements that must be accounted for. Since my knowledge regarding the details and minutae of profiling is sorely lacking, I defer to those probably not older but certainly wiser in the art.
