colour spaces 2

3 Aug 2006 3:38PM
A while back I made a post about colour spaces, I have finally read & read over the main points of my guide again (Magic Lantern - canon350D)and the only topic I am still stuck on is colour spaces, although I get the impression that mainly it is a matter of opinion.

If using the Auto basic green mode, what does the camera set on adobe RGB or RGB?

My instincs tell me that if my objective is printing I should do the following
1/set cam to Adobe RGB
2/Set Photoshop to Adobe 1988 colours

Printer using will be canon Pixma ip8500 with kodak ultima glossy photo paper.

I get my camera 2moro.

Set your camera to Adobe RGB 1998
Set your workspace in PS to Adobe RGB 1998
Set your printer by a wing and a prayer ;o)

See if you can download a profile for the Kodak paper, I think the Kodak site does provide it for the printer, and use that in the printer profile. I use the profile for Canon papers and get excellent results from this printer

You can also download a generic profile for every illford paper used in canon printers from the illford site.

What deviant says is right, I hope you have more luck with the Kodak paper then I had, tried them all, not much success, Ilford is a much better bet. Sometimes you can get deals on it with places like 7 day shop

What about profiles for HP printers? I have not seen a Kodak profile for the HP1215 or HP230 printers. I am struggling to get decent prints from these printers as the print outs are quite dark and I am forced to increase the brightness of the images in PS, almost to ruinous levels.

Have you calibrated your monitor? Is the problem the printer driver, your choice of colour spaces, or your PC monitor settings?
