Chris I'm no expert but I do know that there is a difference between the way a monitor shows an image and the way a printer prints an image , it's all to do with YMYK for printers and RGB for monitors ( I think thats the right way round ) . In photoshop CS2 and I'm sure all the others you can click on the
button at the top of the screen and then the
option and then
, the next window that opens is called the
Customize Proof Condition
and at the bottom of this window there is a tickable box
Simulate paper colour
. This will then show you how the image will look when you print it and you can then adjust the image accordingly , but don't save these changes after you print it because the image will not look right on screen once you have changed the settings back .
I hope this makes scenes but if not I'm sure there are a lot more better qualified people on this site that can explain it a lot better than me .
