Printer Help

Just used my new Monaco Optix to calibrate my monitor.

Now, how do I tune up/calibrate my Canon S9000 ink jet printer for optimum results?

I use OEM inks and Ilford Smooth Pearl for larger prints and some Canon Photo Paper Plus for smaller prints.

Running P/S CS on a PC.

printer profiles

Ideally you would get a custom profile made for each paper & ink combination you use, then select those as part of your colour managed workflow.

You may get good results from Canon's canned profiles with their papers, but I don't know if there are generic profiles for Ilford/Canon. Whatever, a custom profile is pretty much certain to improve your results.

A monitor profile only helps CM software to provide the optimum display on your monitor.
