While the last suggestion was quite extensive, this one sentence
You can not set the printer to match the monitor. You must set the monitor to match the printer.
is counter to the instructions of every single authority in the world on this point.
Setting your monitor to match your printer means:
There is an industry making monitor calibrators and every reputable photo-related site I have ever seen considers monitor calibration a must.
A search on Do I Need to Calibrate my Monitor brings back a huge number of responses
Don't take my word for it, read a bunch and see what they say:

Printers like the Pro100 are calibrated. Setting the monitor to the ptinter works very well. It also does not require you buy extra gadgets to accomplish.
It is shear nonsense about getting good prints from commerical printing services.
You can try either way and see which is easier.
I have done it this way for years and sold many, many prints.

And could you explain how you know that everyone's printer is perfectly calibrated and worthy of being a substitution for an actual calibration device?
Perhaps you could explain why every authority in the photo world says that monitor calibration is important - but you don't.
And we should believe you?

Reguardless of the other posters comments, I suggest you give my method a try. He just wants an argument started.
It is free and if it should not work for you, you have not lost anything. Not that it means anything but I was in the business for 40 years.

Thank you I am going to read through the images you posted. I have an EIZO calibrated monitor, my issue is not with the monitor, it is with color management and making sure Ps is the controling factor. So I won't need to worry about calibration.
I need to make sure that there is no other software adding it's two cents (or yellows) to my images. Thank you again for your time.
