Help: Color Management Setting in Photoshop and Epson Printer


C

CW

My Epson printer (in the proporties dialogue box) have the following color
management controls: color control, photo enhance and ICM (include a further
option of no color adjustment).

I'm going to print directly from Photoshop (7.01). If I've already selected
my epson printer profile in Photoshop (under Print with Preview), which
color management control listed above should I choose in the printer
properties dialogue box? My guess is no color adustment under ICM but I'm
not sure about it.

Please advise and thanks in advance for the help.

Suggested steps to print from Photoshop with an Epson photo printer:

1. Print with Preview
2. click Show More Options
3. click drop down box to Color Management
4. under source space click Document: Adobe RGB or ColorMatch RGB
(these are the recommended color spaces to use for photo printing)
5. under Print Space: Profile - select the corresponding color setting
for your specific Epson printer & paper,
e.g. Stylus Photo 960 Prem. Glossy P.P.
6. under Intent select Perceptual.
If your photo is highly saturated and the print posterizes, then
select Perceptual
7. click Print
8. Properties
9. Advanced
10. Color Management
11. ICM
12. No color adjustment

I think you are correct. You do not want to double-correct. The problem,
though, is that none of this works unless your monitor is calibrated first.

If Photoshop is set up for your monitor gamma, then you should do all of
your color adjustment in Photoshop and set the printer driver to leave
things alone. (I'm assuming the settings are in Photoshop itself, not in
some utility that manipulates the monitor driver.)

If you calibrate your monitor with its own driver (not in Photoshop), then
you are presumably mapping your monitor into the sRGB space used by Windows
ICM; and you should then use ICM in the printer driver.

I hope that's not too confusing. I do things the second way, because that is
application-independent.
