How to use ICC Color Printer Profiles with Photoshop CS3 CS4 on a Mac

Instructions for Epson, Canon, and HP inkjet printers

Color profiles are pieces of software that bypass your printer color management in an attempt to reproduce better color gamut and print quality for a specific paper, printer and ink set. If you are unfamiliar with profiles or Photoshop, read all support documents carefully before beginning.

A video on profile installation is at http://www.redriverpaper.com/installprofiles

Key Concept:

In this tutorial, we are allowing Photoshop to manage the colors. Your printer color systems are being turned off.


GET STARTED

When you are ready to print, choose File > Print (Command +P) and the Print dialog will appear.

1) Verify your document is Adobe RGB, sRGB, or ProPhoto RGB
2) Set Color Handling to Photoshop Manages Colors
3) Choose your paper’s profile from the Printer Profile drop down
4) Select rendering intent – Relative Colorimetric or Perceptual. We recommend Relative Colorimetric.
5) Check Black Point Compensation

Now click PRINT.
