Hi everybody,

I've just been playing with a friends' Canon S9000 printer, before taking the plunge and buying my own machine (probably an Epson). I found that I had a lot of trouble getting the calibration right and matching output to my screen.

Basically, setting the media type to Canon Pro Photo, and the printing mode to high quality photo seemed to give washed out and slightly dusty looking prints, which didn't reallly match what I wanted. On the other hand, changing the media type to plain paper seemed to give better and more accurate colour.

Any idea what might be up with that? Is there a tutorial on the web somewhere that explains how to calibrate everything?

For the record, my computer is a Mac running OS X.

Thanks in advance,
