monitor calibration/inexpensive printer/inconsistent results...

I use PS7 and I have calibrated my monitor to the best my eyes can see.
When I print, the images usually (80% of the time) come out slightly lighter
than desired.
But every once in a while (20%), I get a printout that is what I see on the
screen.

I realize the percentages should be reversed if the calibration is correct.
But is this difference due to using an inexpensive printer?

Is there somewhere I can get more up-to-date monitor profiles for PS7?

Have you calibrated your printer as well?

Now THAT is funny!

I take it to mean "profiled your printer as well" as there ain't any cal
work you can do.

Using Adobe Gamma Loader I presume? You did not say.

"Lighter" than desired normally indicates you are either in a larger color
space than sRGB or you have a gamma problem.

I don't know... what printer are you using? If you mentioned it earlier, I
must have missed it.

Monitor Profile for PS7? Huh?

Read up on color spaces and management. Start here:
