Pixma 100, color appears not to be managed

Hello, I'm using a Pixma 100 with Photoshop on macOS Sierra.


I have selected "let Photoshop manage colors." and I selected the Canon color profile for Luster paper (Luster 1/2). However, the printed colors look so different from my screen preview (the one Photoshop says should match print colors) that I have a feeling that color management is just broken somewhere.


The differences are that blues, violets, and magenta are washed out or low contrast, and images often look excessively green.

Since you are on a Mac there are some things to check.


Go into System Preferences->Printers & Scanners and make sure that you see Canon Pro-100 and that "Kind" says Canon Pro-100 series. You do not want to see AirPrint or Bonjour.


If not, delete the printer, click "+" and wait for IJ Series to appear; it could take several minutes.


You want the settings to look like this:

You could also install and print from Canon Print Studio Pro. It makes sure all the right "switches" are set.

The problem was that I was connected via AirPrint. Works great now.
