Take a Look

(no subject)

I realize this is a pretty amateur question, but I'm getting frustrated and there has to be a better way to do this. (I also realize this is a web-related comm, not print, but IDK where I should be asking this)

How do I make sure what I see on screen is what prints? It's getting tiresome to keep wasting paper. I tried calibrating my monitor following this tutorial, but it seems to be for the web only.

I know there will always be a bit of a difference between RGB monitors and CMYK print, but there has to be some way to bridge the gap...right?

oh, right, I'm using the extremely ancient original CS version of Photoshop, an HP Photosmart Pro printer, and a PC


I just found a great tutorial in this community about how to make animated mood themes but I don't have two of the programs I need. The tutorial said that I need Adobe Image Ready and Photoshop 7. Does anyone know where I can download these programs for free. I don't really have the money to spend to get them. If not, does anyone know of another program that will work like those two programs, Thanks.

Photoshop CS5

Again I'm having trouble with my program (I use Photoshop CS 5). When I save a PSD I name them accordingly (BASE - Photobox L.A. (1), BASE - Photobox L.A. (2) ect.) so that way when I save them as PNG files, they already have a name. However, when I went to work on my second icon batch, went to Save As then selected .png as the format on a file called BASE - Photobox L.A. (1), it changes the file name to BASE - Photobox L.A.png on every single file. Now obviously I can't save 26 icons as .pngs with the same name so my question is What did I do wrong and how do I fix it?
