Good morning. I am experiencing true issues with my prints. Here's what I do: #1 . Import Raw images from EOS 30D directly into Aperture (the profile seems to be Adobe RGB 1998, I'm at work, and can't recall clearly). #2 . Export the ones I want to work on to Photoshop. Now I have selected in Aperture I want to proof a sRVB profile I have calibrated and which apparently came with my 23" ACD. Therefore Photoshop asks if I want to use the embedded profile or convert to Photoshop's one, or discard everything (don't color manage).Usually I tell photoshop not to color manage. #3 . Pop back into Aperture. Click print. I let the system select the automatic color profile for the printer (Canon MP600). Highest quality on the printer settings. #4 . I am amazed to see that my pictures are disgusting where they are printed. There seems to be a gamut issue, which I would caracterize as "uneven transition between colors", especially in the blacks (someguy deals with this here) . This results in some sort of opaque black, rather greyish. I'm pissed. I payed a lot of money for this printer. I think I'm missing something out. Could somebody please recap slowly and precisely all the steps to having something close to accurate (maybe while avoiding the purchase of a display calibrator? ) from screen to print. Just please give me some tips. I don't want to come up to the guy and say "hey the printer you sold me works like ****" because I'm sure it's my newbie-own fault. Thanks in advance.
