Re: I have a new Canon Pixma Pro 100 to make prints of my watercolors but printing is inconsistent

Hi John

 

I thought I'd give you an update in case there are other fine artists having trouble printing in the future.

 

I didn't order the Red River paper sample because I had a sample of all the papers in a card pack so I tried some of them after I talked to my printer friend again. He said he never lets Photoshop manage the colors when he prints art and he told me to turn off colorsync. So I tried that with some of the card samples and it worked! 

 

So my settings are:

- working space sRGB

- let the Printer manage color

- In printer settings, turn colorsync off

- I'm using Fine Art Other 1 for my paper type (Canson Aquarelle Rag)

 

Finally feeling good about my prints.

 

Kathy
