    Matching Print House Colors
    by itsallgoode9
    I'm doing a project that will eventually be sent out to a print house...what do I need to do as far as color management and profiling to match their printers?

    Do I just need to contact them and see if they have any printer profiles, which I will use that as my proof colors for viewing...

    White-out in photoprinting
    by Garry
    Edit2: Well, after reading the sticky post I am going to re-phrase my question. Is there a way that I can check if the image is out-of-gamut for RGB photoprinters? The out-of-gamut CMYK system works fine in PS, but how can I assure that all the colors in the imagefile is legible for a photoprinter?...

  • Printing: Weird colors after printing in Photoshop

    I tried to print an image in Photoshop and the colors are really weird. I tried two options "Photoshop manages colors" and "Printer manages colors". No difference. Then I tried to print the image in XnView and the colors looks exactly same as on my monitor. So where is the problem in Photoshop? How can XnView print it ok and Photoshop cant?

    You should always test output using good color reference images designed for that task. The color reference images RGB values are such they are set for output and are editing and display agnostic. Test the output this way and examine for the same color issues so we know it's not your image specific issues causing the problems:

    Ideally you want to print using the correct ICC paper profile and using Application (Photoshop) manages color.

      Thank you.
      So the main problem was in the paper profile. I was printing the image on a normal paper, but in the setting was "glossy paper". I didnt noticed it.
      BTW, I have Epson printer. Should I use Epson printer profile or some other profile?

        If you have Epson papers, you can use the Epson supplied profiles for those papers and your printer. If not, you can't us them.

          The problem is I cant find paper profiles for my multi-function printer. Is it possible there are no profiles for Epson L382?

            Yes, that's very possible. Epson installs profiles for papers it makes for many of it's printers but not all. But unlikely for that multipurpose printer. Here's what appears to be available:
