A digital image in a camera (le) and the printed digital image (righ ) - page 15 / 16





15 / 16

  • e image on the le is a color-managed screenshot of the actual so-proofed page. e image on the right is a

digital capture of the image printed and displayed on a GTI Daylight light box. Considering all of the iterations and media involved (screenshots and a copy shot of the prin ), it’s a close match.

Now your end print should match the Photoshop so proof accurately. e potential for error is anywhere, but there are two common errors resulting from improper settings. If your image is overly dark with a greenish cast, it’s likely that both the Photoshop color management and your printer driver’s color management settings are turned o, which result in no color man- agement being applied. If the print is too light with a magenta or red cast, it’s likely that the Photoshop and the printer driver’s color management are both turned on. is double color management is very common.
