Getting Ready to Print

Basic Print settings in Photoshop CC

The following is a general guideline to get you starting in printing your images from Photoshop CC

First things first…make sure your Photoshop “Color” settings are correct.

Go to “Edit” scroll to the bottom and select “Color Settings”.  Under “Working Spaces” select either “Adobe RGB 1998” or “ProPhoto” I suggest ProPhoto as it has the largest color space for the finest gradients.

Next Select “Intent:” there I suggest you set the default to “Perceptual” – This sometimes results in a slightly less saturated image. Often imperceptible…but it’s a good default

 

 

Next: Now that you are ready to print Go To “File” and scroll down to “Print”. Review the image below and mimic the settings…
