    do you mean you are using your screen's ICC profile for your image to print?...that should not be the case...try leaving your image in standard sRGB and print...

    hmmm maybe the other bro and sis which are more familar can explain better.

    for me is colour profile

    when i take red apple on my camera i should be able to see the same apple on my screen and then my print will also be the same colour .

    if this not set , no point for me to edit my photos

    ICC stands for Internationa Colour Consortium. Actually if you have your monitor calibrated, you should use the same profile for your printer, so that the print out looks the same as the one on the monitor.

    as I explained in another thread, you should not use the same ICC profile for your printer as the one you use for your monitor...the ICC profile for your monitor is to inform the computer how to display colour information on your monitor such that the monitor can reproduce a standardised display of colour...naturally it would not be the same as the information required to display standardised colour on your printer...you can't even use the same ICC profile for a different monitor...

    to profile your printer, you can adjust the colour by eye by matching prints to screen...which is subjective to your eye and to the colour temperature you view the print...or you can get someone with a print profiling system to do a profile for you...I think there are people in CS who do this...there are even services on the web where you send a print to the company and they email you an ICC profile...depends on how accurate you want the printer to be...

    your printer should originally be set to reproduce sRGB...most are...so applying/leaving your image profile at sRGB should usually be good enough for most of us...

    Hmm... I guess I'm wrong. I can't seem to find the reference that says to use the same profile for the printer and the monitor.
