When I print a photo on the Mac, I'm offered a choice between ColorSync and Vendor Matching:
I'm assuming ColorSync does color management on the Mac and sends the printer a bitmap in its native color space, while Vendor Matching sends the printer a photo in some standard color space like Adobe RGB and leaves it to the printer to the color management. Is that correct?
What are the pros and cons of each option? I've found that ColorSync worked slightly better on a laser printer for which OS X had a color profile:
But made things far worse on an inkjet printer (HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 3525) for which it didn't:
Notice that it doesn't show a profile for the printer, only "Automatic". And there's nothing in "Other Profiles...", either.
Beyond that, what are the pros and cons of each option? When should I use each?
