Re: how do I calibrate my canon pixma pro 100 to match my monitor

We've had some situations here that resulted from folks printing on the wrong side of the paper since some papers make it very hard to tell the coated/print surface , but it sounds like HRP is easy to tell.

Printed on correct side, it is easy to tell.  Paper was meant for bubble jet printer circa 1997, but better than copy paper for testing.  Went to canon site, they of course listprofiles for currentpapaers and printers, not this.

Maybe choose Matte Photo Paper profile.

I would also double check your monitor calibration. Then go to files Windows> system32>spool>drivers>color and find the monitor calibration profile you just created, right click and install. Color Munki should be diving this automatically, but it's always good to check. I use a PC, not sure where the monitor profile is kept on a Mac.

Also, double check that this setting is in place.

It's important to verify that your desired display profile is being used, but it sounds like you are not getting a good match between the display and print. 

 

The Pro-100 is capable of great prints. I'm not sure what else to suggest. You could eliminate a variable by getting a pack of Canon Luster Photo Paper and try that since it has a known profile. If that doesn't give a good print with the Outback test image maybe it's a printer problem and you can pursue an exchange with Canon.

Do this before wasting any more ink.  You may just have a faulty profile and very easy to correct.  Smiley Wink

Re: how do I calibrate my canon pixma pro 100 to match my monitor

I know I've beaten this topic to death.  However, thought I would post images from downloaded test pattern, saved as jpg and copy of same pattern printed on Pixma Pro 100, then scanned as jpg.  Note the color shift in reds in gamut bars as well as shift in magentas in rgb squares.  I also had these images printed at costco, who reproduced accurately what I saw on monitor and print!
