I just calibrated my iMac with the Spyder5Pro. This sucks!

I'm sure it's accurate and everything but the display isn't very bright at all.

I went through the process and it instructed me to lower the brightness level to match the target level (according to what the puck measured) so I did.  I'm doing this at night so the only ambient light source is a desk lamp to the left of the screen.

I did this calibration so I can start printing images I took (sending it to a lab online).  But is the cost of printing images a lower brightness level that I have to live with?  Am I stuck with this dimness when I'm photoshopping stuff?  I guess if I brighten my screen a little I won't be getting an accurate representation of the final print product, right?

I'm a little left-brained and a little right-brained.
