Selecting your Profile / Photoshop Advice:
You need to ensure that after you've installed your profile you re-start photoshop (if already opened). You also need to ensure you select the profile in Photoshop . For Photoshop versions 7, CS and Elements 2 the profile is selected in: File, Print with Preview, (making sure you have 'Show More Options ticked' and 'Color Management' selected) print space – profile.
For Photoshop CS2/CS3 and CS4, after selecting 'Color Management', in Options select "Let Photoshop Determine/Manage Colors" in the 'Color Handling' box, then you will be able to select your profile in the box below.
Please Note: If you need to select "same as source" in Adobe Photoshop CS2, CS3 & CS4 this has been replaced by "No Colour Management" (selected in Print with Preview, Colour Management, Option, Colour Handling). For earlier versions of Photoshop the profile is selected towards the bottom of “Print” dialog box where it says “space”.
Why can't I print what I see on my monitor?
What makes you think that your monitor is accurate? - If you have an accurately profiled printer, then the print that you produce will agree to the digital values contained within your image file. As a completely separate issue, if you have a good quality monitor which has not deteriorated too much with age, you should be able to adjust your monitor through Adobe Gamma to give reasonably accurate colour rendering, or use a monitor "spider" to do the job automatically. Theoretically, if your monitor is adjusted for accurate colour, and your printer is profiled accurately, these two colour devices should in reasonable agreement. Beware of the common problem where you are using an inferior quality colour monitor, or your monitor has deteriorated with age (each CRT colour gun may have reduced in output to a different degree, giving you an inaccurate colour display). - Never assume that your monitor is accurate just because images 'look good' on screen!
