Hi,

Thanks for your response. I am using photoshop cc with canon print studio. The print came out not the same as my screen.  I also print same image with epson xp800 and epson 9600 and get the same print out as my screen.

The epson printer driver allowed color mangament to turn off. So please show how to turn off the canon pixma pro 100 color management.

Thanks for your help

Hi Ninh. Print Studio Pro handles that setting automatically. 

 

What paper are you using? Can you post a screen shot of your PSP settings?

Hi John,

 

See if you can help me find the Printer's color management in my photoshop setting dialog box, please?

 

I have all right:

- working space in Adobe RGB (image profile in RGB as well)

- photoshop managing the colors

- a calibrated monitor

- Canon paper

- ICC canon paper profile

 

When I use the "printer manages the color" to print, the colors come out very close to what is on the monitor. When I try the paper's ICC the photo print gets a magenta cast (actually all colors get messed up). I understand that I have to disable the printer's color management, but I can't find where to click. All dialog boxes I found on the internet are different than mine. even if Mac disable automatically when you set the profile, I should be able to see it, right? I tried to print the photo out of Lightroom and indicates the same thing - and the colors are off the same way.   

 

Thank you,

Sandra

 

 

Hi Sandra. lets see if we can work this out.

 

1. when you go into System Preferences->Printers & Scanners do you see this:

You don't want to see Bonjour printer. If you do click the plus sign to add a printer and wait for IJ Series to show up.

 

2. If you click Options & Supplies do you see ths:

If you don't see 16.20.0.0 go to the Canon site and download the latest driver. If necessary repeat step 1. The Bonjour driver is not a Canon driver, it is an Apple driver and it doesn't take advantage of the Canon driver features.

 

If you configure Lightroom to use an ICC profile and select Print Settings do you get this:

You can see that canon Color Matching is turned off and the whole selection option is grayed out - you can't select the wrong option.

 

If you configure Lightroom to have the profile Managed by Printer and select Print Settings you should see this:

Here you can see Canon Color Matching is selected. You would then go into the media dropdown and select the paper you want if you are using Canon paper.

 

In Photoshop it is similar. Select Print Settings and you get the same driver image.
