Question: Calibrating photos for printing

I would like to prepare a photo book through iPhoto (a 'project')--my first. How do I calibrate the photographs so as to minimize the differences that exist between a photo displayed on screen and the same to be shown printed (e.g. photos do not appear darker or less sharp). I use Lightroom for post processing.

Also, what would be the best format to submit a photograph for printing? Thanks.

MacBook Pro, macOS Sierra (10.12.6)

Answer:

The iPhoto book process is designed for folks who don't ask technical questions.


Books are processed into pdfs, so the file format doesn't strictly matter. For other prints use RGB and Jpeg.

The only thing I do, except for removing blemished from faces, straightening and the other usual photographer screwups, is to make sure the photo's color profile is sRGB and to lighten the image a little bit. I find that the pictures are a bit darker than I like when printed so I lighten them up a bit. It's primarily a personal preference thing. Also I have my monitor calibrated/set to the sRGB color profile.
