Re: Embedded color profile?
In reply to rpenmanparker, Jan 26, 2013

no i dont use monitor profiles for the printer.

but your mentioning the monitor profile indicated to me that the image and histogram I posted WAS NOT the image i complained about printing too dark. That monitor profile did not exist until more recently. The colors of the image I posted that you commented on are based on that monitor profile, and color adjustments in PE using that monitor profile to make the color adjustments. Again, the hope is adjusting the colors in PE using that monitor profile will result in PE sending better color instructions to the printer when PE controls the printer using ICC profile for the paper.

Does that make sense.

Basically telling me about that profile told me that was not the original image printed.
