Pixma Pro 10s Dark prints

[ Edited ]

Hello I have a Pixma Pro 10S and the prints are dark

I have windows 10 and LR and PS 

I have set monitor to medium brightness and it is calibrated regularly, I d/loaded studio pro but it says it cannot find a suitable version of PS or LR

Any help would be great

Thanks

 Welcome to the forum Heres10P.

 

First, download this test image and print it using your photo software but not making any adjustmenst before printing?

Is the print too dark?

 

Additioanl info - what operating system are you using. Are you subscribed to the Adobe plan (i.e. latest versyions of LR and PS).

Hi Paul. So its darker than your monitor, but when you view the print under your normal viewing conditions is the print acceptable on its own - i.e. don't compare it to the monitor.

 

A frequent statement is "my prints are too dark" but on further inspection the finding is that the monitor is too bright.

Re: Pixma Pro 10s Dark prints

Glad to help. What you want to is reduce monitor brightness till the monitor and print are close in brightness.
