recently just added my monitor ICC profile. Using Photoshop 7 as the main image editor. hoping my new 7hi wiff ICC embedded profiles can give me a more accurate image as some of the photos i take will be going for print.

have done the contrast/brightness adjust from "Accurate Image Manipulation" website already. Would u reckon just loading the monitor profile sufficient? :D

(sorry if it gets too technical)

Colour management is far more complex than just loading a profile, sad to say. Take some time to read up on it, it will be time well spent.

Your lab, if it's a good one (and if it's not, find another one), will be able to handle various good ICC profiles.

Not off hand. Adobe as usual is a good place to start though.
