Re: Did you choose the matte black for printing ???

This is what I do. it may or may not work for you.

Two ways to go.

1) Let the printer manage the colors. in the print driver choose Premium Matte or Photo Rag. Do not choose Other Fine Art or generic Matte Paper.

2) Use a profile, but only use the Canon profile that came with the printer that most matches the paper you are using Don't use third party profiles even they are the brand of the paper. So, if you are using Hahnemuhle Rag paper, use Canon Photo Rag Profile and the Photo Rag selection in the driver.

Let us know if this helps.
