Smugmug prints not matching with monitor...
Dec 29, 2008

OK, so I have a Dell 2005fpw monitor and an eyeone pro display calibration hardware. I calibrated the monitor in advanced so that everything is right, (had to lower rgb to get luminance down) but I just got 6, 5x7 prints done, and they seem somewhat washed out and desaturated compared to my calibrated monitor...Im really confused. Ive gone through so much effort here! and im a college student, and over winter break I really want to get my photos edited...any tips? Id say most notably the greens and maybe yellows look much better on my monitor than in the prints. Please, any input is greatly appreciated...I really want to be able to edit my pics. And fyi, eyeone has been nothing but problems.
Thanks so much!

ps. should I just calibrate manually til it matches the pictures printed from smugmug??
