    The other day, I posted a thread about calibrating my Canon i9900 printer, because the picture of my dog was way off.

    Several of you recommended Cathy's profiles, which I just sent off for (with the sample prints).

    However, you also recommended calibrating my monitor first. Today, I bought the Spyder/2 calibrator, and WOW, what a difference!!! The same picture of my dog appears to be right on, but I can just imagine what it will be like when I get the proper profile for my printer.

    If you haven't taken the plunge to get your monitor and printer calibrated, I highly recommend it.

  3. Calibration makes a huge difference. I look back to when I first started in digital and my colors are terrible. Buying an expensive CRT monitor and attendant calibration has helped me immensly.
