flip: how do you guys know what colour the final print will come out? do you use any tools to optimize your screen prior to finishing the job for last minute tweaks? can you share your process for this please?
Color management via a hardware calibrated monitor (I use a ColorVision Spyder) and then for my own personal printing to my Epson 4000, I use paper profiles specific to the paper I'm printing to. Working in Photoshop by the way with a Photoshop working space based on BruceRGB (Bruce Fraser's settings) but many people use AdobeRGB as a working space.

If I were sending something out to print, I'd ask the printer about their color management practices and for the profile they would be using for my print job...


PS..if the printer doesn't use color management, then cross your fingers and hope for the best...'-}}
