I have just purchased a Canon Pixma Pro 100S which I'm using to print black and white images. I'm finding the prints have a variety of colour casts, depending on the paper used. My monitor is calibrated correctly, and there is no colour information at all in the images (duotone or gradient tint etc). In trying to understand what is happening I first need to understand the message I am getting in Lightroom's Print module.
In its Print Job Panel, I am using the following settings to print:
- Print Resolution: 300 (Printer's native resolution)
- Print Sharpening: Unchecked (I've sharpened manually)
- 16 Bit Output: Checked
- Profile: Canon PRO-100S 1/2 Photo Paper Pro
- Intent: Relative
With these settings, I get the following warning at the bottom of the panel:
When selecting a custom profile, remember to turn off color management in the Print dialogue. Black Point Compensation will be used for this print.
Note: I'm using OSX with Yosemite.
My questions are:
- How do I turn off color management?
- What 'print dialogue' is it referring to?
- How do I control Black Point Compensation?
