Thanks Greg, I know she was looking at some color calibrators like the ones she has where she works. I cannot remember the name exactly, but I belive it was Spyder? Do you have any suggestions for a calibrators?

There are several decent quality display calibration devices out there. The ColorMunki is made by X-rite, who also makes the i1 (Eye-One) line of professional calibration tools. Spyder is another popular brand. They're all basically the same, it's a photo colorimeter with a reference card and some software that will produce an ICC profile for your monitor and/or printer. The newer ones (all of them) also evaluate the ambient lighting in the room and will allow you to make daytime/nighttime profiles and compensate for some room lighting issues. Pros usually with in a room with color neutral surroundings and lighting so it doesn't impress a color cast on their eyesight.

My recommendation for a "less expensive" and fully functional display-only calibrator is the ColorMunki Display. Stupid name, decent product. LOL.

You can see a lot of photo-snobby but informative information about both over at forums.dpreview.com
