Re: Print Studio Pro Windows 10 installation issues

In Photoshop you can have the printer manage color or the application manage color. I recommend you have the application manage color.

 

Here are the settings you want to select":

The profile is the one that applies to the paper you are using.

 

When you select Print Settings the print driver will open.

 

Follow these steps and this will turn off printer color management.

Annotation 2020-07-01 142324.jpgThen you need to select the media type (i.e.paper), where you will be printing from and the print quality.

 

In the page setup tab you will select paper size.

 

You will also want to go the following website and download the test image.

You open the image in your printing software and print it without making any adjustments to the print.

 

If everything is OK then you should get a "perfect" print. Study the print and the guidance in the website.

 

Once you are satisfied with the print compare the print to your computer display. If the display doesn't look very close to the print (they will never be exact) you need to adjust. Assuming you have a decent display the biggest discrepancy will probably brightness. Displays are usually too bright.

 

I'll be back with more.

If you think you want to tweak the printer output you can create a pattern print. You can select varies mixes of C, Y, M or brightness contrast.

You will get a print like this

Pick the one you like best and dial in the settings.

 

Then you can save a special file that you can recall and select when you want.

I've never found the need for that since my printer output is close enough for my needs, but I'm not selling prints.

Re: Print Studio Pro Windows 10 installation issues

Wow, thank you so much for replying with such a thorough response!  I'm realizing now that I am such a newbie that I didn't even know what question I should have asked in the first place. I'm going to experiment with all of your suggestions, because I see now that the plug-in isn't really what I'd thought it was. Thanks so much for the guidance, it's been really helpful!
