Is there any best practices for color management to get WYSIWYG with the display, photoshop and printer. I have tried numerous combination of settings with these components. Somehow I just couldn't get a printout (on Canon's Photo Paper Plug Glossy II) from my Canon MP510 to be consistent with the display image. I calibrated my lcd using the NVIDIA control panel for screen optimisation. With photoshop, I set the color profile to AdobeRGB and tuned the pictures to my liking. When it comes to printing, I have tried these two combination:
1. If I set the input profile (at the printer properties' color correction) to AdobeRGB, I get a printout that is slightly reddish and more saturated.
2. If I leave the printer's color correction unchanged, or set it to ICM, the printout will appear hazy/foggy!
Though I have no hardware with my display optimization, I believe I shouldn't be too far off from the correct color. But then you never know, I may actually be seeing wrong color.
So the point here is ... can anyone please share how you get WYSIWYG with photo printouts.
