View Full Version : Calibrating Canon iP4600
How do i calibrate the Canon iP4600 to match my screen? I have calibrated my Computer Screen using a Spyder 3.
Please can someone help :thinking:
You need to get a profile for your inks and paper
I use PermaJet as you get free bespoke profiles for there paper BUT they will make profiles at a cost of other papers
IS there a way i could calibrate it tonight as wanting to get some prints off tonight to send away tomorrow
Is it proper Canon paper you're using? If so, you'll find there are a series of profiles already installed (which came with the software). You'll need to select the correct profile for your paper.
I let Lightroom / Photoshop manage the colour and select the appropriate profile. I'm using Costco Paper which recommends using the Photo Paper Pro setting so I'll base my example on this.
i.e. Canon ip4600 series PR1 means Photo Paper Pro, quality setting 1 and you setup your driver as follows:
Paper: Photo Paper Pro
Print Quality: Custom, set Standard to 1 (or whatever last digit of profile is, 1 is highest).
Color/Intensity: Manual, under Matching, Colour Correction: None.
Make sure all Effects are switched off.
This is how I've been working and it's pretty good, I don't quite recall where I read this but it explained the different profiles and what the SG (semi-gloss if I recall correctly), GL (gloss), MP (Matt) and PR (Pro) stood for.
Hope this helps.
Printing from Photoshop set Photoshop manage colours select the right paper profile and yes the canon ones have odd names think SP2 is gloss I for get as I not use there paper now
Then when you hit print you need to go to Properties Colour Manual then click on set and select None under Colour Correction now you can hit print
Shouldnt i somewhere refer to how my monitor is calibrated so i print off what i see on my screen. Just done a print using the PR1 and its come out a bit darker than what i can see on my screen, what can i do to change this?
btw thanks for helping guys
If it's an LCD monitor then it could be your viewing angle.
you can see what it will look like with proff ing in view set it to your paper
