There might be a better forum for this, but there are more smart people here, so I will give it a try. I have a MacBook Pro whose screen I have calibrated with an eye-one...lots of times! Had an old Epson 2000p and no matter what always got prints darker than the laptop screen. got a custom profile for it and still got dark prints. Tired of the old clunker anyway, and bought a new Epson 3800. Still get prints significantly darker than the laptop screen. I know I need an external monitor, and am going to break down and get one, but I would really like to be able to get close with the laptop screen. Photoshop CS, premium luster with the Epson printer profile 38plpp, photoshop managing the color, all the normal stuff. Could it be some kind of issue with the monitor brightness matching the level at which it was profiled? Many thanks to all.
