Print and monitor consistency
Anyone familiar with monitor calibration? It occurs to me that what I see may not be what you see or what prints for my pictures. I need to see what will print as I will be doing so next month.

I think that helped. What worries me is that b/w gradients look smoother when my screen is set to gamma 1 than the "recommended better" of 2.2. I get zero banding at 1 and a nice middle gray.

You're always free to preview things on my mac... While the display's not "calibrated" the OS takes GREAT STRIDES to make the display as crisp and true-to-life as possible.

If you want your prints to look right, you need to create or acquire an ICC profile for your printer. If you're sending to a real printer, you'll want to ask for proofs of all your images.
