    Hey guys,

    Recently bought a Macbrook Pro 15'' and I surely do love it! :)

    What I've heard from others before is that if you edit something on a glossy screen and then develop it onto print, there's a major difference; doesn't come out like what it looked on screen?

    How can I prevent this? What colour settings will I need to set up in Photoshop?

    Thanks.

    Tai.

    You need to get a hardware color calibrater.

    For example I use the Pantone Huey Pro.

    Yes, you'll need your monitor calibrating. I use a Colorvision Spyder2 Pro, but if you're not keen on investing that kind of money there are third parties that will come and do it for you.

    Although remember, prints will never look like images on screen because images on screen are backlit, prints arent (ok, i know there are some exceptions).
