Color Management

Hi, this question piggybacks off the previous color management question, but it's much more general.

All my colors look different everyplace. Web images change color when they come to photoshop. My two monitors are different, my printer is different from that, preview and QuickLook are different in their own ways. When I save something in PS and use it as wallpaper it looks different--everything.

So where do I begin? Do I get one of those things with the eye that measures the monitor? Am I supposed to adjust photoshop or the print settings? I see all these color management dialogues and they are full of inscrutable terms. Where to start?

Thank you.

You should start with calibrating your monitor(s). Here is a good guide:

It's weird though, that your images look different depending on the program. If you make a picture in photoshop and then place it on your background for instance, it should look the same...

I don't know anything about printers. Sorry. :)
