How to use printer profiles for color fidelity

Lesa Snider, | May 23, 2011
Lesa Snider gives us the lowdown on printer profiles and how to use them for accurate color printing.

In Photoshop Elements, choose File -> Print and then click the More Options button at the bottom of the dialog box. In the resulting dialog box, click Color Management on the left and from the Color Handling pop-up menu, choose “Photoshop Elements Manages Colors”. This activates the Printer Profile pop-up menu, as shown here.

Adobe’s products use their own print dialog boxes so accessing profiles is a little different, as shown here in Photoshop Elements.

In Photoshop CS5, choose File -> Print and then from the pop-up menu at the top right of the resulting dialog box, choose Color Management. When you do, a Color Handling pop-up menu appears underneath. Choose Photoshop Manages Colors and then make a selection from the Printer Profile pop-up menu.

As you can see, it takes a little work to locate, install, and utilize profiles, but the results are well worth it.
