You send whatever RGB working space you have to the print driver, Photoshop and the driver do the conversions. You need to read up on how to color manage the data from working space to print space. http://www.ppmag.com/reviews/200506_rodneycm.pdf

You want to make large prints for exhibitions?
You can't see Profoto RGB on your monitor
I think Adobe RGB is enough

I use RGB: eciRGB v2 & CMYK: Euroscale Coated v2
but I live in Europe

Re: Which color profile to use?

I want to print out 11x14 or 13x19 format out of my Epson R1900 printer.
and I already choose Profoto RGB as profile.

ProPhoto is fine, now you need to select the paper profile for whatever you are popping into that R1900. If you are using Epson papers, they should be installed on your system from the install of the driver.

Yes I always and only use Epson glossy paper 11x14 or 13x19 to print.

What I don't understand is how to calibrate? I own a Spyder Pro 3 calibration.
Do I have to convert to choose the profile as My Spyder Pro 3? or I can keep ProPhoto RGB as default?

Re: Which color profile to use?

I don’t know what you are doing with that Spyder 3. If you calibrate and profile the display, you’re done with it, it only serves the purpose of producing correct on-screen previews. If you use the product to build paper profiles (if it can do that), then you’d convert from ProPhoto to the paper profile in the Print dialog. How well that product builds paper profiles would be the next question.

Doesn't Spyder just calibrate the monitor regardless of profile??
