Question about Canon Pixma iP4500 InkJet Printer
When working through a colour management workflow with this printer and setting Colour Handling to Photoshop Manages Colours, the instruction is to cancel the printer's colour management with the 'no colour adjustment' option, but I cannot locate this any where. Can you help please?
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.
(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.
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)
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" or 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

Try this one:
In Photoshop, go to View>Proof Setup>Custom and select the ICC profile for the printer and paper that you will be using.
Canon iP4500 SG* is for printing with Canon Everyday Glossy Photo Paper (GP-501/401) on your printer.
Canon iP4500 SP1 is for printing with Canon Plus Glossy Photo Paper (PP-101) on your printer.
Canon iP4500 PR* is for printing with Canon Photo Paper Pro on your printer.
Canon iP4500 MP* is for printing with Canon Matte Photo Paper on your printer.
Select a rendering intent (i.e. Perceptual, Relative Colorimetric, Saturation, Absolute Colorimetric). I normally use either Perceptual or Relative Colorimetric on my Canon printers.
You might want to check black point compensation.
The display will now show you how the image is supposed to look once printed.
Edit the image based on the softproof.
Afterwards, go to Print With Preview.
Select the same color profile and rendering intent that you used for softproofing.
Choose Let Photoshop Determine the Colors.
Hit Print. Select the paper that you will be printing on. Go to Color Options. Select none for Color Correction.
Hit Print again.
Hope that helps.......
