Presume you are talking about computer monitor and not a flatscreen tv.
Yes, you can use Photoshop or Paintshop Pro. I did it with Paintshop Pro, got totally confused and didn't like the results. I did buy an i-One and use it to calibrate. Kind of a tossup between that and the Spyder. It nags me to re-calibrate every 4 weeks but you can turn that off. The good news is that LCD computer screens are much more stable than older CRT and can defer for 6 months.
I've done it for customers I delivered photos to who thought there was something wrong with the photos and were "correcting" them - then they saw the original emailed file on my monitor and realized it was theirs. Since we are local. I could swing by sometime and calibrate it. Alternately, you don't have to buy the $200 unit. There is a local camera rental place near Aloma and the 417 that will rent for 1 week for $20. http://thelensdepot.com/shopping/pgm...&=SID#MOREINFO
While they are internet/shipping based, they do make arrangements for local pickup.
