Apologies if this is a really stupid question but I just seem to be stuck. I have an iMac G5 and have noticed that when I order prints directly from iPhoto, they come back a lot darker than they looked on the screen.

I read in a photography magazine that this is often because computer displays have "artificially" high contrast settings to make everything look nice. They suggested that when working with photos, I should take my dark print and hold it up next to the display. I should then adjust the display brightness and contrast to match the photo - that way I will know that what is on the screen is what I will get when I send pictures off to be printed.

My problem is that I can only find how to change the screen size and not brigtness/contrast etc on the G5. Also, I would like to save my changes as a seperate screen setting so I can just use them when I am in iPhoto but not at any other time.

Any ideas?
