Hi,

Just did some more poking around with the prints, LCD and PaintShop.

What I found out was that I can adjust the images on LCD to look like
the prints using PaintShop. Before that I fiddled around with the settings
on the Graphic Card. I managed to make it look like print but rest of the
stuff turned pinkish-purplish.

However, here's what I did to the images on PaintShop.
- ColorBalance : Warmer by about 30% (shift the slider to the right)
- Brightness : between -35 and -38
- Contrast : between +10 and +11

And with the pictures taken at the camera settings:
- Picture Mode : NATURAL
- Saturation : -1
- Sharpness : -1
Those pictures on screen looked pretty close to the prints.

Now I just want to know that whether these settings would be consistent
between prints from the same shop. Suppose I take some more pictures
with the same camera settings and went to the same shop for prints ... will
applying the same changes make the images on LCD look same as the prints ?
Everytime ?

If no ... then what am I missing out ? Is there a general solution or I have
to take prints once and re-adjust the images and then get the prints again
from the same shop hoping that this time they'll be closer to what I think
they are.
(Or don't take prints and keep them on my computer coz they are gonna look
better on the computer)

Cheers,

wait a sec
you did what to the graphics card ?
do you mean that everything on the PC looks purple?

you might need to readjust your monitor so that the colours are right

prints are inconsistent
i try to make the images on the PC the best they can be, not the same as prints

not real sure what you are attempting

the software for my graphics card (old g force) has a calibration program buried in the menu somewhere. I presume new cards have them also. Also if memory serves photoshop has a calibration thing as well. photoshop is a good place to start to play around with images

I meant that when I initially started out to make the image look the same as
that on print by changing the settings on the graphic card, the result was that
images started looking pretty much the same as prints but the over all color of
the whole screen went pinkish purplish.

So I took the graphics card to defaults and tried changing the images themselves.
