    Default Help! printed pictures came out much darker

    Hi guys,

    Need advise here.
    I just printed my digital pictures in kodak express and asked them not to touch/adjust anything.
    The printed pictures came out much darker compared ones on my monitor. I already calibrated my monitor.

    Please advise what to do to prevent this?
    Do I need to include icm file in the cdrom for developing???
    THanks!!!

    Prints usually come up darker than the same image on the monitor. But shouldn't be too much different. Check your monitor calibration again.

    chenwei, no, you should not adjust monitor to match the print. The print should always be adjusted to match the monitor once the monitor is accurate.
