An ICC profile can be specified directly from Adobe Photoshop when printing photo data without using Print Studio Pro.
Note that the Adobe CMM (Color Management Module) color conversion engine is used when using Adobe Photoshop’s printing function. As this engine uses a different color conversion method from that of Print Studio Pro’s color engine, your printer may not produce the same color tones as printed from Print Studio Pro, even when the printing conditions―including the paper―are the same.
Photoshop print settings (for both Windows and Mac OS X)
In the Color Management pane of the Photoshop Print Settings window, select Photoshop manages colors in the Color Handling pull-down menu. Specify the appropriate profile in the Printer Profile menu to suit the loaded paper.
Deselect the Black Point Compensation checkbox. The Canon printer profile assumes that this Black Point Compensation checkbox is turned off. If it is selected, the shadows may be printed lighter than expected.
Printer driver settings
Open the Manual Color Adjustment dialog box from the Printer Properties window. In the Matching tab, select None under the Color Correction pull-down menu.
Mac OS X:
Selecting Photoshop Manages Colors overrides printer driver settings. No additional setting is required.
