I use photoshop and ulead photoimpact with a 19" dell monitor. The photos look great on the monitor, but when I print them on the Canon MP950, they always come out a little too dark and with too much red tone. I tried to follow the instructions for monitor calibration in photoshop, but didn't really get anywhere. Is there some place that offers some really easy instructions on how to calibrate your monitor to your printer and vice versa? I need simple instructions. . . Thank you for your help.

I dont know if this will help you or not as I am using a Pixma 4200. I found that the only way to get close to what I see on my monitor in either photoshop or programs that dont have color management is this. Do not use any color management in the program and in the printer settings (color/intensity) be sure it is set to NOT use windows ICM and the auto setting. If I try using windows ICM I get very reddish results. In Photoshop I also found that my monitor setting in viewing proofs matches the print result from the Canon. No photoshop color management used.
