On another photo drift. I got a colorimeter for my birthday (I'm 7th Sept, SRS). I've still got a bit (or maybe even a lot if I really wanted to go to town with this)to learn but I think I've improved my monitor already - probably mostly by setting the monitor to "neutral" settings and changing my desktop settings - as the default icc profile I found for my monitor and my last attempt at having this thing create a profile aren't miles apart (by my standards) - but I think it and some attempts at reading have pointed me in a better direction.
I'm really not that fussy and my eyes are not that good at seeing colour differences but, even with that said, I have found noticeable differences between colours on items scanned, viewed on screen and printed and never know or see what to adjust and where. At least the monitor part of the equation should be more accurate now.
I suppose next up will be to get a calibration target from http://www.targets.coloraid.de/ and see what sense I can make with that on Vuescan and (via scanning and printing) the printer.
