I have a Dell 24 inch high res monitor color and brightness calibrated with a Sypder Pro. I print 13 x 19 on an Epson printer using Epson paper profiles. The result is that I get printed images pretty close to what I see on the screen.

The problem is my images for display on my web site, Flickr, facebook, and emails. What looks great coming out of color-managed Lightroom is over bright and over saturated when displayed online. I save images for display as sRGB. I am wondering if I should just eliminate the color calibration all together since the people I email too don't have calibrated hi res monitors and go back to just adding a little brightness and saturation at print time. Would appreciate you thoughts on viewing color calibrated images on a non-calibrated monitor. Thank you. Gary . . . www.GaryPackPhotography.com
