Hello, I do not post on here to often as I am still quite the beginner. However, I was hoping for some guidance on screen calibration. I have 27" Imac and have been told that it needs to be calibrated after having some photos printed. I have noticed that prints vary from place to place but I am now wondering if it is actually my end where the problem starts. Any help would be greatful thanks.

    Even if you have your screen properly calibrated and profiled, that's only one part of the process. What you see could be spot on, but what gets output from a lab can be way off from what you are seeing. You need a good, accurate (reflects the output device) ICC Profile to soft proof.
