Question about HP f1905 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
My HP f1905 is great EXCEPT when printing photos. When I adjust them on the monitor to look good, they always print much darker. I use two different printers. Epson All In One Rx700 and an Epson Photo R260. I seem to have the same trouble with both. I was told to first calibrate the monitor before doing anything with calibrating the printers, however I cannot afford to spend $250.plus on software to do that job. I also read that Adobe Gamma cannot calibrate correctly with an LCD monitor. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 or Digital Image 10 for adjusting pictures. Can you help me? I waste a lot of ink and paper trying to print and get the correct colors depth or shade. Thank you
Here's the tip I used years ago on CRT's suffering this same fate.
Take one of your printed photo's and hold it next to the screen (with the same photo on it running in whatever software you want to print from)
Now using the monitors controls, make the monitor look like your photo that you have printed.
Nice and dark now like the photo, good =)
Now adjust the software to what you want it to look like when printed.
Looking good so far..ok
Save those settings in the program. then re adjust the monitor back to how you want it to look normally (as it was before basically)
Not the ideal soloution, but it works and it's free.
