Hi Roy,

I like #2 better, #1 looks to have a bit too much contrast and is oversaturated for my taste.

Roy, #2 looks way more natural.

i agree
i'll need to print both to see how what the printer likes but evidently it's best to use aRGB for web shots. and not save the profile. this is something that bugs me. you never know what something looks like on other monitors. i use 2 but they are both profiled almost identically.

this past weekend i finally added a pantone huey to the computer. all my prints were coming out darkerthan what i was seeing onmyscreen and that was bugging the crap out of me. not that i print much, but when i do, it's nice to finally have what you see is what you get in terms of correct colors when i print since photo paper ain't exactly cheap!

if your spyder is working correctly, your prints should look the same as they do on your screen.

i've yet to print anything as i need to refill. it's on for today.
if you have a fry's electronic store near by they have glossy paper on sale all the time. 20 sheets for 99. not the best but also not the worse. you might try out there online store at www.outpost.com

no2 for me as well. no1 is oversaturated. and I have my monitor calibrated by pantone huey but my prints are a bit darker than on screen, I think it has somthing to do with all this profiles and working spaces in Photoshop. didn't really try to work this out.
