    Dark Images

    I have been having a problem with my b/w images, i process them in ps cs4 and
    they look great, I then have them printed and they come back very dark. Today I opened one of the images not in ps and it came up on the screen very dark, so I then opened it in ps and it was perfect. Can someone give an reason why. Thanks

    definitely something to do with monitor calibration profiles, I reckon.

    don't know where to access that kind of setting in PS, but all (good) image editing software allows you to select a monitor profile.

    monitor calibration profiles have an .icm file extention.
