I am using Photoshop CS2 and

have matched it to my camera

(Canon EOS 20D) color space with

Adobe RGB ( 1998 ). Does anyone know how to tell

my printer (Canon i9900) to use custom ICC profiles

to match this?

I.e., where can I find other than

the standard i9900 sRGB printer

profiles? No luck on Canon's website under Drivers.

Where are the

professional custom ICC

profiles for Canon papers and

the i9900 printer?

Also, is there a way I can add

profiles into the i9900 for other than

Canon papers?

Thank you.

Try the settings I showed here:

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/a...t.php?id=49168

They are the only ones I've found that give me EXACT screen to printer output in PShop CS2 (using the Adobe Gamut).

FWIW, we also have a wide carriage printer specific forum further down...lot's of good i9900 info there.
Good Luck!

If your using Adobe 1998 isnt that color match for MAC computeres. Well I heard its best for MAC users only. But if you want to color match your printer to your camera you would need to shoot with sRGB on your 20D and on your PS profile color setting you would need to leave your working space the same as your camera setting.

If that doesn't help get the HP DESKET JET 5940 its awesome for printing and color matching. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the replies.

I also got a reply email from Canon. I can tell they meant well in their reply but what they suggested doesn't match my PhotoShop CS2 dialogs....

They also provided me with an 800 number so I can get followup info, if needed. Nice touch!

After I find the time to paw through all the info I have found on this convoluted subject I will call them and report back here with any good info.

I got my ColorVision Spyder2 in the mail and did a straight-forward process to calibrate my monitor.

My current i9900 set-up seems to be producing good color prints from both PS CS2 and ACDSee applications from whatever I did using suggestions and research. At this point, however, I feel like it is by dumb luck more than by a clean well-explained process.

Kalypso, that is interesting. You check the ICM setting in the Canon printer driver, which presumably assumes sRGB space, but you edit in Adobe Gamma in PS.

Paternl, you did the most important step right, color calibrating your monitor with the Spyder. I find that with a bit of experimenting in the canon printer driver (like Kalypso did) can get good prints without needed an ICC profile for the paper + ink combination. I use Redriver paper, and the ICC profiles they publish for their papers didn't work that well for me and my printer (Canon i960). The colors were off too far for my taste.
