There are calibrating softwares (but usually come with hardware as well). Something like Spyder.

Or it could also be your printer's colour profile set to some 'effects.' Or it can also be due to your camera's colour space.

To have a accurate colour reproduction, you would need to calibrate both your monitor and printer. The printing paper would also need to be taken into account.

Spyder and eye-one display are two of the few hardwares you can look at.

That doesn't help much. If you don't have a profiled display then all your editing is .. useless or even worse. Without neutral reference you won't get good results. The lab might be good and apply some "standard, fits all" settings - but first it will undo and "correct" all your work and secondly: is this what you really want?
If you send to lab then don't do anything, let them use the standard settings there.

what is the name of the software??
my notebook graphic is ATI and they don't provide such tools..

suspect is my printer...using those 3rd party ink .Test print and the yellow looks a bit weird...the photo paper was also given by them FOC...
Will try with original Epson Ink and paper
