Australian Printing

Where should I go to get my prints done so the colours are like my monitor or at least close.  We only have Big W and Harvey Norman where I live.  Do they both use the same system?

Regardless of where you live, Pandanus, it is impossible to find a printer who could achieve that standard. The reason the image on your screen looks different to a print is caused by light. The print image is reflected light, while your monitor image is illuminated light. There's probably a technical term for that, but I can't think of it at this hour  :-). I seem to recall that you live in Victoria, so I am sure if you did a search in Google, you would find a lab down there which would handle quality printing of a higher standard than Big W. You would probably find that you don't even have to visit them either, as they would have an online system that allows you to upload your images. They would then return them by post if needed.  Here in Brisbane, I have used Prolab They have an upload service which I have yet to use, but the prints I have had done by calling in there, have been top quality.

The problem is probably not your printer, it would be your monitor. Take a look at the same photo on several different monitors, and they will all be different. You need to calibrate your monitor to make sure that the colors you are getting on your screen as you edit your photos are standard, and if you have a decent print shop, they will match them.

I use a Spyder 4 Express, probably the cheapest option, but there are others. There are ways of doing it without a calibrator, and they can help, but they aren't as good.
