    Default Printing Photos & ICC Profile?

    Hi, sorrie guys i'm confused.
    Recently tried to print a few "test" shots at a kodak place, ended up the colors came out rather different. Thus i went to calibrate my monitor using spyder. but end up the pics that i printed still look veri different from that i see in my monitor!

    My question is: When saving pics, do we need to embed ICC Profile for accurate printing? if so which ICC? sRGBI6XXXX or the monitor calibrated profile? does the printing place convert to to their own working space or retain? does it make any difference to the end print?

    After calibrating my monitor now, how do i ensure that my prints in future are more accurate? any recommendations?

    Thanks a bunch!

    hey thanks! read thru...and found out tat the lab i went had auto corrections done on my images! omg...plus auto contrast +1 some more! alamak.

    but the part about profiling for the printers machine is quite confusing actually. will have to work on tat. will the printers actually give u their machine profiles?

    anyone else has experiences?thanks!

    Depends on which lab you go to, I know KT gives their customers their Frontier machine profiles.
