    For the life of me I can't calibrate my printer, Epsom 3800. I calibrated my monitor alright. So now my prints are to dark. Help, please get me out of the mess I made.

    Read and inwardly digest - and all should be well.

    I don't know how the Spyder works.

    With the Color Munki, the device/software prints out a test sheet which you then run the device over. It then prints out a second test sheet which, again, you run the device over. It then calculates an ICC profile for you to use with your printer which should result in the print matching the monitor image.

    Don't forget, of course, that you need a separate printer profile for each paper type (and ink) that you might use.

    You will probably find that your monitor is too bright, a useful tip I have just picked up is using your camera take a meter reading of your paper illuminated by your viewing light and then do the same on an all white image displayed on your monitor, if they match give or take 1/2 a stop then your half way there in addressing your dark print problem. Dont forget to re calibrate your monitor afterwards.
