Jeff,
I've been reading your posts again and looking at screen shot from Color Navigator 6. I don't think you have the best settings for photography.
See my screen shot attached.

Sorry to be "bossy", but you may not be getting the best out of this new monitor.

Hello Terry.

I am not getting that much time to mess about this week.  SWMBO got me 'out' most days.

But what I have done is proving amazing.

I have created another 'profile' to  your suggested values and test printed.

All prints are comming out best I have produced.  Cheap paper 10p a sheet, and 60p a sheet Permajet 271 Gloss as far as my eyes can see are exactly the same as screen and each each print no difference.

This is the Big tiff test chart you suggested.

On screen this chart's scale at bottom right reading right to left 243 to 254 I can see the patches as far as 251 (just) 252 to 254 are the same as paper color.

Previously I have not been able to get exact print screen match with out fiddling with QI Brightness and or fill values and that chart has a hell of a lot of tones and shades.  Even then could not gaurantee accuracy.

Now at point when I could print with confidence without small test prints.

SWMBO now called me to the bar.

Jeff
