Okay this is what happened. I just finished coloring a page in photoshop elements 11, and of course it looks really good on my computer, so I wanted to print it to see what it would like in print. First I tried to print on regular paper and as expected it didn't look impressive as it does on my computer because of the paper. I expected it. But, I remember my wife had some special print glossy paper she bought for our son's science fair project. When she used it for the pictures that we took for our son's project it came out great. When I used it for my comic page, the accuracy of the colors I used didn't pop. Like on the computer screen. Now I know the computer screen is brighter so it will come out a little darker when it's time to print. And pretty much that is what happened.
But I feel a few things about this.
#1 Maybe I need to save it not in jpeg but in something else for print. Do you know? :/
#2 Should I just color it how I see it in my head, and the printer people who I send it to knows what adjustments to make?
#3 I did play with the brightness and then printed, and repeated that until I got something close to what I see on the computer. Now should I do that for every picture myself, or should I leave it alone and give that responsibility to the printer shop, because I will mess up whatever the printer does normally to fix color print issues like this one. I mean do they have the right paper and the right printer to do this stuff, and it's my lack of knowledge and non comic book printer that is the problem?
