Bifurcator - with two kids in college, what seems like two fulltime jobs, and a lovely wife with whom I wish I could spend more time, your advise is welcome news. "Click on print" will be my first step as I think you may be right, I just may be happy with the results and I can go back to work, or walking with my wife - while we just enjoy the new wall art!

Thank you all for the input.

Good to hear you have your priorities in order. I have a 5D and a Pixma Pro 9500 II. My monitor is calibrated, so I click the print button and 98% of the time a get a spot on print.

Just try it. If your results are close to what you see on the screen and you're satisfied, you're good to go.


Yup!

And just for the record I'm not saying fussbudgetry isn't fun and educational! Heck in those 2% of times when there is a problem the hundreds of hours you spent may even pay off - for you will know why the problem is happening and maybe even the best way to solve it. For me it was fun. I never used the information I learned for printing - ever. But I did get to answer a few hundred forum questions about how printers work, what happens to the image data throughout the pipeline, what profiles are about, the properties of various inks and papers, and etc.

And I might add that for other kinds of printing besides photographs on an inkjet a lot of it actually required knowledge.

BTW: For magazines and such no one uses DPI or PPI. They speak in terms of LPI.
Oh, and that's not a sand dune... That's an enlarged section near her crotch. Follow the green boxes.
