Specifying Color Correction

You can specify the color correction method suited to the type of document to be printed. Normally, the printer driver adjusts the colors by using Canon Digital Photo Color so that data is printed with color tints that most people prefer. This method is suitable for printing sRGB data.

If you want to print by using the color space of sRGB or Adobe RGB data effectively, select ICM. If you want to use an application software to specify an ICC profile, select None.

The procedure for specifying color correction is as follows:

  1. Select the command you use to perform printing from the program you are using. (In general, select 'Print' on the File menu to open the Print dialog box.)

  2. Select your model name and click 'Preferences' (or 'Properties'). The printer driver setup window appears.

  3. On the Main tab, select 'Manual' for 'Color Adjustment' and click the 'Set' button.

  4. Click the Matching tab, select the 'Color Correction' setting suited to your purpose from the following, and click 'OK'.

    You can print by using the color space of sRGB or Adobe RGB data effectively.

    The printer driver does not perform color adjustment. Select this value if you are specifying an individually created profile or a profile for special Canon paper in an application software to print data.

  5. Complete the setup Click 'OK' on the Main tab. When you execute print, specified color adjustment method.


  • If ICM is disabled in the application software, ICM is unavailable for Color Correction and the printer may not be able to print the image data properly.

  • When the Grayscale Printing check box on the Main tab is checked, Color Correction appears grayed out and is unavailable.
