This is my first foray into having images printed. My question has to do with evaluating prints once they are returned from the lab.
First, just some brief background: My images were shot in Raw & post-processed in Lightroom 5 on a calibrated NEC MultSync P221W display. Next, I soft proofed the images in Lightroom using the printer/paper profile provided the lab (ProDPI). In soft proofing, I made any necessary adjustments to match the soft-proofed image with the unsoft-proofed image side by side. The images were then sent to ProDPI to be printed on luster photo paper with no color correction by the lab.
When I received the prints from the lab, I noticed that they all had a definite warm, yellow color cast when I compared them to their respective images on my computer display. Obviously, I could use some guidance here as to the possible cause & correction of the color cast. So, I would appreciate any help you might provide.
Also, I find it difficult to compare the printed images with the image on my computer display since the print is not backlit (like the computer display) & the luster photo paper has a different texture compared to the computer display.
Any help you can provide or recommended reading sources would be most appreciated. Thank you so much!
