I have found that on glossy paper (and now especially on metallic papers) I have to raise the luminance level for a print output by about 1 f stop. I keep my finished picture in file as I like it on the monitor (which, btw, has been carefully adjusted.) Then I make a printing copy and give it an f stop more value of light. When it prints it usually then looks like the image on the monitor from the original. I then place the output on my computer into a file called "Printed Images" so If I ever want to come back to them, I have the right file. I also make a notation in their name as to what kind of paper they had been printed on....that will make a difference in output as well.

Thanks John, it is an interesting suggestion.
