Canon Pixma Pro-100 printing too green!

Hi everybody, I'm trying to make some fine art prints of my original paintings.

 

I had professional high resolution photos taken of my work, and have edited the colors in photoshop (with monitor set to medium brightness... I know that sometimes bright monitors are to blame for color discrepancies). I am printing from photoshop and set the colors to be managed by photoshop, yet in many of my paintings the colors are way too green. And yes, I've also downloaded the correct ICC profiles for the types of paper I'm using.

Is there any setting on the printer to help with this? Help!

Are you printing from Windows or Mac computer?

 

Is printer color matching set to None or Off?

 

Try using Print Studio Pro.

I'm having the same problem Smiley Sad I'm printing from Mac but I took it to my inlaws house and printed from their PC and have had the same issue. I've also tried Print Studio Pro and used every combination of ICC profiles as well as let PS control colors but no matter what I do it turns out with a green cast Smiley Sad even on my b&w pics and on matt or gloss canon photo paper I really just want to take a hammer to it :'(

Re: Canon Pixma Pro-100 printing too green!

I figured it out (On Mac). The same would happen to me whenever I tried to print from another user on my computer the settings would reset and my prints would have a green tenting over them. Go to print if in Photoshop, once the print page comes up go to print settings, Layout, Quality & Media, Photo Papers, and the one that works for me is Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss (but you may need to try diferent ones to see which one you were using before it forgot and went crazy. Then make sure if your in photoshop  to set photo shop maniges colors, also choose in the photoshop print window your paper tipe and you should be good to go.Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 2.36.18 PM.pngScreen Shot 2017-04-29 at 2.36.43 PM.pngScreen Shot 2017-04-29 at 2.37.16 PM.pngScreen Shot 2017-04-29 at 2.38.05 PM.png
