    excellent for those printing on Fuji Frontier machine..go get it..very accurate.

    But first...calibrate your monitor like this first.

    1. Adjust contrast to the highest

    2. Brightness about half (varies, good if you are on the mac-use monitor calibration tool. It will help you adjust correctly. On the PC I think you can use Adobe Gamma.)

    3. Always use Color Temperature D65 (sofware or hardware), industrial standard for print work. IT has a slightly yellowish tint, its normal.

    4. Gamma settings at 2.2 ( the higher the number the less details you see but doesnt mean you should set it lower-lower will washout the images.) PC monitors are naturally set at 2.2, mac monitors are 1.8.

    For mac users, you can use Monitor setting to help you achieve these steps by using the calibration tool.

    To use the icc profile, copy it to the correct folder on your computer. This location varies with operating system:

    Mac OS 9.x: Systems Folder/ColorSync Profiles
    Mac OS X: Users/CurrentUser/Library/ColorSync
    Windows 98/ME: \Windows\System\Color
    Windows XP: \Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color
    Windows NT/2000: \Winnt\system32\spool\drivers\color


    5. Within photoshop, under color settings on Photoshop 6 and above. Set your RGB settings to the particular ICC you want to use. In this case, its the fuji


    6. Set desaturation/brightness level for monitor under ICC by 10-20%

    This will ensure..80-90% color correction. hope this helps.

    Your monitor will always look brighter than your print. This is common, but at least you can get close to your color saturation.

    * If the admin thinks this is useful, please put it as sticky.

    Pretty interesting site.

    Harlowmac, good tips! Instead of putting it as sticky, how about adding in some pictures and make it an article instead? Something like this,

    http://www.clubsnap.org/display.php?...er/borders.htm

    It will definitely help others to understand better.
