I was wondering what do you guys do after you shoot on your Digital Still Camera.
What I did was :-
1. I shoot RAW.
2. Photoshop for Colour and Exposure.
3. Burn to CD.
4. Sent to Kodak for printing.
What I can't figure is I cannot get consistent result from the Foto Printer and calibrating my LCD monitor does not help much.
Anyway this what I did:-
1. develop about 50 shots. (ask the printer not to adjust anything).
2. adjust my monitor gamma to match the shot (average).
But the second batch that I develop after Photoshop in the new monitor gamma still don't work too well. It's got a yellow cast and skin tones are way off.
Can I presume thst I can never get consistent result from Photo Printer ??
Or is there in thing wrong with my methodology ??
So the next thing to confirm is to wait afew days and send the same photo for developing and look for inconsistency?
Anybody got a better way to do this please share.

1. buy profileprism from mike chaney www.ddisoftware.com
2. send the tiff target to kodak for printing
3. scan the returned print
4. use the software to profile the printer based on the scanned print.
5. lend software to the rest of clubsnap so that we can profile as well
