Re: Color management

Unless you have calibrated your monitor so Photoshop knows what colors you really see use the printer driver. You also have to understand a bit about color spaces, gamuts, bit depths and how to use paper profiles (hopefully with soft proofing) to use Adobe color managed printing.

If you are on top of all that you can use PS color managed printing even in Elements (not sure if Elements has soft proofing).

If you do not understand calibration, color spaces and all the rest do not let Photoshop manage colors. If you do most likely every print will look pink.

You can get excellent prints using the printer driver with a little experience. Particularly if you have an all jpeg/sRGB workflow and don't use a heavy hand with the brightness/saturation/vibrance sliders.

No matter how you print it helps to understand how to evaluate a print on its own and not in direct comparison to the monitor.
