Pixma pro 100 printer problem

New Contributor
I’ve had this printer for two years and have been printing from Lightroom and have not had any printing problems. I decided to try to print from PhotoShop. I wish I had just stuck with Lightroom. I’ve printed and most prints were too dark. The color handling to photoshop manages colors. I have the properties set for photo printing, glossy photo paper, 8 1/2 by 11. I changed to color/ intensity manual adjustment. Doesn’t help. Now I’m low on ink and can’t print manual color/intensity (manual). I could use some help. I don’t know how to adjust the magenta, cyanide and yellow using the sliders.
I’m using Windows 10.
Please help

The sliders either reduce or increase the vibrance or intensity of the colors independently. 


This will reduce or increase the saturation of the final output. 


We can't tell you where to set the sliders.  It depends on what you are printing.

Welcome to the forum ilovemisty.


I can't think of a reason why LR and PS should produce different printing results with the same correct settings. I use LR, but I just set up and printed from PS. LR and PS produced same prints.


Double check your settings. Since you used term color/intensity I am assuming you are on a PC.
