Re: why do photos need color correction prior to printing ?

your answer doesn't make sense with regard to my question Hugo.

if the camera transfers the data it recorded straight and unaltered to my computer, and I make no changes to that data when i transfer it to the printer one would expect if the camera recorded the image properly that the print would look proper. isnt that intuitive ?

one should not have to even look at the computer image, just send straight through, camera to printer, no changes requested/executed in any photo editing software.

the images are always too dark.

there has to be a more comprehensive answer than blaming a monitor as the monitor did not change the photo.
