Color Management Hints
You can affect your image colors via your print software or your printer driver software. In general, image software like Photoshop will have a greater effect over color, saturation and contrast than the printer software. However, using printer drivers to change color works well when smaller adjustments are needed.
To Get to Color Controls in Printer Software:
Epson – From Properties –Click Custom – Click Advanced
Canon – From Properties – Click Advanced
HP – From Properties – Click on Advanced Tab


Protecting Your Prints

To achieve maximum print life, follow these guidelines. Atmospheric contaminants, as much as light, play a role in image fade. Protection from the elements will make your prints last longer.
* Display prints under glass or plastic and away from direct light.
* Spray coatings are also great for protection against atmospheric pollutants
* Keep prints away from humid conditions
* Allow your prints to dry and “cure” 24 hours. To facilitate drying, you can cover each print with a piece of copy paper. For dye based inks, store new prints in a plastic bag for 24 hours - this helps protect inks from moving air while they set.
