I get questons all the time regarding color management. The most common question- "I want the image on my monitor to look my prints, where do I start?"
Calibrate your monitor. It's quick and easy to do and Adobe has even provided the tools necessary to do it.
PC users will find the utility Adobe Gamma in the Control Panels.
Mac OSX users will find the utility Calibrate in the System Preferences.
Choose System Prefs > Display and click on the Color tab.
Both utilities provide step by step instructions for calibrating the first piece of hardware in the digital workflow, the monitor. Look for more on this important subject in futire Posts.
