Had the same problem. Spent the better part of a day trying to solve this. Finally, looked at Scott Kelby's Photoshop CC book. Gives link to kelbyone website, where there is a chapter on setting up color management. At the end of the chapter, he says complaints of dark printing is common. Solution: duplicate layer in photoshop, set blending mode to screen, adjust opacity beginning at 25%, increasing as necessary to match image on screen. Then make a PS action to automate this.

I have seen that as well from Scott and its the biggest crock of s**t I've ever heard.

Funny that get a perfect brightness or luminosity as well as color match between my prints and my properly calibrated monitor regardless of what Pinter I print to (15) or paper I use.

If the workflow is correct there is NO need to resort to any of these "Fixes"! Onlky an n it is not.

Ask Digidog and you just might actually hear him laughing his a*s off!
