AuthorSubject: The more I learn, the worse things get!   [Go to Bottom of Page]

This message's subject heading is self-explanatory. I've been having a great time with "Real World Color Mangagement," and attempting to get a reasonable match between images (from Canon 1Ds) on my Artisan and prints on Enhanced Matte on a 2200. But, the more I experience those, "Aha! Now I've got it..." moments, the worse the match between monitor and print becomes.

I think I can distill it down into this question: When attempting to work in Photoshop with the intention of printing something that looks like my moniter image, should I always be using the "View/Proof Set-up/Custom" menu item in Photoshop. If I understand correctly, this function in Photoshop is supposed to apply the printer profile to the moniter. If that's right, then it seems reasonable that one would always want this function 'turned on' when attempting to get a match between moniter and print output. Again, is this right, or have I gotten way off track?

Assuming it is correct, I'm not sure how to set-up the various functions in the "Proof Set-up" dialog boxes -- particularly the "Preserve Color Numbers," and "Simulate: paper white" check boxes.

With the usual apologies for 'newbie' idiocy, am I on the right track? Or is this "Proof Set-up" really used for some other purpose?

My only other comment is that my print image looks significantly darker than my moniter image. I'm pretty sure (bet you've heard that before!) that all the other various settings are correct: Using Print with Preview in Photoshop -- "Document Source Space" is Adobe RGB 1998, "Print Space" is SP220 Enhanced Matte_MK, "Intent": Relative Colorimetric. Then, in the Epson Driver box: "Color Management": ICM, "ICC Profile": No color adjustment.

Again, apologies for the length of this note... but I think I'm on the verge of a breakthrough, and need this last clarification...

Thanks.

Robert
