    I just got a new Canon Pro-1000 printer. I tried printing out of C1 (from a raw file) - and the colors are way off. Too red/orange. Used the Canon Paper profile for Canon Pro Luster paper. I tried a few different setting but no difference.
    I print a JPEG version using Microsoft Office Picture Manager (with the Pro Luster Profile) and the colors are fine.
    I have a calibrated monitor.

    How do I even begin to figure this out? (without burning through a bunch of paper.)
    Do I need to do something with rendering intent or black point compensation.

    Or is printing from JPEGs the right way to go.

    Thanks for the help!


    I have always found the Canon Driver inscrutable working from RAW files in C1 and previous favoured applications. Not just colours but other factors as well, C1 being better than most in that respect.

    Unless you have a very specific high-end need to print directly based on the RAW file an output to jpg and then let the printer do its own thing from there seems to be a good option.

    In my situation it may not help that I use a paper for which I do not have a dedicated profile and not a Canon Paper but even with Canon paper colour balance is, shall we say, unusual in the reds and that comment does not just apply to C1 prints.

    I should probably try harder but since I have an alternative route that works for my purposes it seems pointless to take the time and effort for my needs.

    HTH.

    Thanks Grant. Any "print programs" that might help with JPEG printing? I know that Canon has a 'Print Studio Pro' plug in for LR - but doesn't work for C1.

    If you want to print do yourself a favour and get Qimage. Simply the best printing software that doesn't cost the earth.

    Automatically resizes your print job to optimise the output depending on the printer Canon or Epson.
