I have a canon pro 100. I use lightroom and Canson paper. I have downloaded the profiles from the canson. I cannot see to get the correct color from the screen to the printer. For instance I have a tree in fall that is orange on the screen, and when it comes out of my printer it looks red.

These are my settings in lightroom printing. Print, setup, main, color intensity (manual), matching none (and I have also tired icm and put in the profile there as well).

I set the print to the icc profile which I downloaded from Canson.


Please let me know if you have any ideas? Is there a color profile setting on my computer that needs to change. I have windows 10 and a pc. Yes, I have calibrated.

have you tried printing from the Canon print and Layout utility?

You may have seen my other posts from this morning, but I see you use Canson Paper. Are you aware that a number of their papers are intended for Pigment inks. I have the Pro 200 (dye) and the Pro 1000 (pigment). Some Canson papers I would classify as unusable on a dye printer like my 200 or your 100 (especially when you see how drastically better they print on Pigment). For example, Canson Platine Fiber Rag.

Thus I reiterate what I said earlier. Eliminate as many variables as possible when diagnosing. Test with Canon Pro-Platinum, Luster, Semi-Gloss, or Fine Art Ultra Smooth. Print with the Canon Print and Layout Utility (which is free). Use the Canon provided ICC Profiles and Media Types. Come back and let us know how it goes.
