Color Help

Onyx Version:

I am using the Epson GS6000 and I am having trouble printing a photograph on canvas. The sky is a deep blue but every time it prints out I get purple instead. The rest of the photo turns out great nice deep greens and browns.

In Photoshop I have checked and all of the colors are in gamut. The color profile is the standard Adobe RGB1998. When I go to Onyx I have my media that is loaded selected. I am using Epson GS6000 Canvas Gloss. I have made sure to use the same printer profile (Adobe RGB 1998) in the profile tab. Rendering Intent is Perceptual. In the past I have left the Output tab alone. Right now it is left to default printer ICC.

So my question is do I need to select a profile or make a profile for the output?

It sounds like you need a better printer profile. But I'm curious just how you checked and know all colors are in gamut.

Helo Kayla.

You have no idea how deep and large this ICC ocean is ! Confused

a/ to give you better answers - how experienced you are ?

b/ AdobeRGB noway is a printer profile! It´s a "Device Independent Profile" - a profile for moving data between devices. Photo cameras and many software use it to "unbind" pictures from devices.

c/ ICC management in the output MUST be activated, otherwise... (no idea what then - never tested it)

d) Gamut warning in Photoshop works ONLY for standardized printer profiles (like SWOP, ISO, Fogra profiles) - quite useless for you (as you have 8-color Epson)

e/ is your Canvas ICC profile specific for your canvas media, or is it "some" Canvas you found in Onyx?

f/ do you know that your monitor is probably NOT ABLE to show all AdobeRGB colors? Until you have a High-End monitor some extreme color regions will always be very approximate - colors will never match the data. I.e. it is possible that the colors from printer are OK, and your monitor is wrong. Confused

g/ to your question - color management always means:
Input profile -> Output profile
Media Profile in Onyx usually has the output ICC profile embedded. You need to select the correct input ICC profile (and rendering).
