    So now that I've got the 20d and a decent photo printer (epson R320) I want to print some of my images. Printed one last night and holy god is it off from the monitor. I knew calibration was important but I honestly didn't think it would be that far off :eek4:

    Are there any programs or tests I can run on it (other than buying a calibration unit, which I will do if I must) that will allow me to control and calibrate the monitor so I can expect what I see on the monitor to come out of my printer. Looks now as though the monitor is pretty bright compared to the actual image.

    Images print just fine on my HP 7960.

    coo, it isn't intuitive to do the first time, but once you get a system down, then you're set

    Tried it but I dont have the paper options, and a lot of stuff was kind of different from what you posted. I followed as close as I could and it turned out better than it had been, but still just a tad bit off. Def. a step in the right direction though.

    Printer is an Epson R320
