I used the x-rite that was in sale a few weeks ago... I still need to do the rebate... But I'll give that a look. Thanks for the suggestion.
Actually... LR and facebook are not playing nice together... what I'm seeing in LR is what I expect, but FB is making the black look horrible... I'm guessing it is just FB's compression...
If you calibrate your monitor, could it be that your browser is not set to use your monitor's color profile?
Calibrating your monitor is a good start, but you also have to tell your browser which color profile to use for images, too. For Firefox, I use the Color Management add-on. It works well, but you have to manually select the profile to use (I wish it would dynamically apply whichever profile is in use by Windows for the monitor the browser is displayed in). Since I move between a two-monitor setup at home and another at work, I have to switch the profiles back and forth in the add-on. It's a minor inconvenience.
If you don't calibrate your monitor, well, all bets are off...
