Monitors/Colors Help! - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

I am new to using photoshop. I am using a Dell flat screen which I know isn't the best to use for photoshop use and color management but for now it is what I have to work with and am doing the best I can.

    Default Monitors/Colors Help!

    I am new to using photoshop. I am using a Dell flat screen which I know isn't the best to use for photoshop use and color management but for now it is what I have to work with and am doing the best I can. I have read many books and articles, even those that people have referred to in their posts, but I want to ask a specific question.

    The images I am working with are scanned to a CD, they are images of original paintings that are 30X40. When I load them into Photoshop they are RGB. One of my end results is to print them as giclees using Epson 2200 .. which I believe from I have learned prints in CMYK. When I color correct, do I do it with the image in RGB and then print that way? Do I change the mode to CMYK and color correc that way? I am so confused!

    Thanks

    PamT,

    You color correct in RGB and sends the picture to your printer in RGB.
    I can recommend that you use the special media profiles from Epson
    which, in my opinion, is fairly accurate (Epson ICC Media Profiles).
