Color Managment Hi Does anyone know if you can set up a Colour Management for the E-20? Eg can I set so that the photo will be sRGB when written to the card? Or is just a case of converting it when it goes into Photo Shop?

If you shoot on jpg, it's already sRGB. I don't know why you would choose to convert something to sRGB though unless you like sabotaging your images. Adobe 1998 has a wider color gamut.

ICC profiles are pretty big, so you wouldn't want to waste valuable space on a memory card by attaching them to each image. As far as I know, no digital camera does this. So it is a case of remembering what colour space you shot it as and then assigning the image that profile when opening in PS. So it is not a case of converting, just assigning. In PS's colour settings, make sure to check "ask when opening" for missing profiles.

Canon iP4500 colour management

Try this setting. This might be different but try to point some similar preferences and steps then you can give it a try.

Open Control Panel (I'm assuming that the OS is Windows XP) click on Printers and Faxes.
Right click the Canon iP4500
Click Properties in the drop down menu.
Click on the tab Color Management
There should be a list of color profiles if the drivers were installed properly.
They are-
(Matte Photo Paper)
(Photo Paper Pro)
(Photo Paper Pro Matte)
(Photo Paper Plus Glossy)
The last profile is the one you want. Just above you will see the choice of "Automatic" or "Manual". Click on Manual and this force the printer to use the highlighted profile for all printing jobs.

Now click on DEFAULT.
Go back to the main Properties page and click on the General tab.
Near the bottom you will see "Printing Preferences"
click on that.
You should now be in a Canon ip4500 Printing preferences window.
Look for Print Quality and click "Manual"
Click on "Set"
Click on "Diffusion" and just above that there is a slider that should be all the way to the right.
Click "OK" to save the settings.
Now just below you will see "Color Settings"
Click "Custom" and then "Set"
Everyone sees colors a little different but the following settings print a photo that folks I show them too really like the balance of.
Cyan 4
Magenta -12
Yellow 0
Black 0
Intensity Slider in the middle
Enable ICM not checked (disabled)
Print Type set to Photo (you might want to try the other settings here to see how the prints look to your eyes)
Brightness Normal
Click OK to save settings and return to the Main Menu.
If you now go under the Profiles tab you should see you new profile there.
You can give it a special name like "Canon Excellent Profile Settings" clip_image001.gifor some other easy to remember name. This is the profile you want to use when you print a photo.
That is it...simple eh?
Now the other important part is in PhotoShop/PS Elements. Open the program and then open any old photo.
Under File, scroll down to Print Preview and click
If not open, click on "Show More Options"
Bring up "Color Management" in the box just below the "Show More Options"
For "Source Space" click ""Document"
This setting depend on the profile you shoot in, either Adobe RGB or sRGB. You choose the one you use.
Below that there is a setting for "Print Space"
You want to match that to your source, whether Adobe RGB or sRGB.
For the "Intent" letting I choose Perceptual.
Then click "Use Black Point Compensation" and that is it. Ready to print

My camera doesn't show good color picture

What is the best way to manage your color management and sharpening workflow if you send your images to an online photo lab for printing, such as Snapfish or Shutterfly, instead of printing your photos yourself? In other words, how do you calibrate your monitor to see what your prints will look like when you don't own or operate the printers that will be making the prints? Marc Konowitz from Staten Island, New York

Scott: As long as you are working in a color space that they approve and you are working with a color calibrated monitor, you will be surprised at the quality you will get from various print houses. Get a color calibration device such as a Color Munki or other device.

Joe: Most of these printers will use sRGB so as long as you're shooting into sRGB or converting to sRGB then you should be happy with the results. One thing you can do is to send in some B&W prints and if then you can tell if they are coming back with any kind of a color cast.

Tone of the skin colour & clothes changes when a photo is scanned & reprinted

Without knowing the make and model of your printer and your scanner or your operating system, I will make some general suggestions to you:

1.This can happen if you have begun to use generic ink rather than the ink made by the printers maker. Have you changed to a brand other than the brand of your printer?(If you have you may be able to change the way the photo looks by follow the instructions for printer settings below.)

2.It may be a problem with the settings for your printer. To find them, please follows these instructions:

>Right click on the printer we are discussing

You should now be at a window with several tabs. Paper/Quality is the page where you can change to the type of paper you are using and change from the lowest to the highest quality of print. (fast-fastnormal-normal-best). Please set your printer for the paper you are using and for the quality you want. (the better the quality, the more ink you use.)

Next you can open the Color tab and under color management I keep Colorsmart/sRGB selected.

You may also open the Advanced settings tab and change the way the photo looks. Please make very small changes until you see what the photo is going to look like. I also recommend that you set the printer for the smallest photo paper that you have and experiment with printing things very small until you like the way it looks, since printing photos takes a lot of ink.

When you are finished with adjustments to your printer settings, click apply and ok. and close the window. You will need to know how to get to this place, so if you are not familiar with it, please write it down.

3. You can change the coloring of your photo under several different settings in whatever photo program you are using. Look for hue and saturation, color,lightness and brightness, etc. and experiment on a photo with those settings.

Let me know if there is any thing else I can do to help. thank you for using FixYa.

My Canon 50d is set to sRGB. However, when I upload the pics to my computer, my color profile is blank. Then when I import them into PS4, it says they are adobe RGB. Any suggestions?

Your images are still sRGB. When uploaded to computer, the EXIF data is not captured or the software on your computer (eg, Windows Explorer) is simply not showing it. I suspect that when imported into PS4, the colours are converted to Adobe RGB colour space by PS4.

Dull colors on 8550 phaser printer


Looks like you don't use the Magenta ink that much, on this machine because it is so hot all the time after a while the magenta can get a strange brown colour and the cyan can get like a aqua marine colour. All you can do is purge the magenta by printing magenta sample pages or just wait until it goes away.

Also you could try the following Tek Colour correction (but It probably won't work). See below

Automatic Applies the best color correction to each graphic element: text, artwork, and photographs Office Color sRGB Display: Approximates the colors on a computer display.
sRGB Vivid: Produces brighter, more saturated colors than sRGB Display. Press Match SWOP Press: Matches specifications for Web Offset Publications.
Euroscale: Matches Fogra glossy paper specification.
Commercial: Approximates U.S. commercial press target.
SNAP Press: Matches specifications for Newsprint Advertising Production. None Applies no color correction. Use with other color management tools, such as International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles, ColorSync, or the PANTONE Color Chart for the printer. Black & White Converts all colors to shades of gray

From the workstation, select the color correction in a supported driver.
Microsoft Windows 98 SE / ME / 2000 / XP/ Server 2003 / NT 4.x Operating Systems (OS):

NOTE: Some of the color corrections are grouped under Office Color or Press Match.
  1. Within an application, click [File] from the toolbar, and then select [Print] from the menu. The Print window will be displayed.
  2. Click on the [Properties] button located on the top, right of the window. The Properties window will be displayed.
  3. Click on the [TekColor] tab.
  4. Select the required color correction.
