I've been printing succesfully to my Canon ipf6300 for over a year now using my normal methods. But recently I've installed a lot of new software (LR4, CS6, various Mac system updates) and now when I try to print a correctly colour balanced image with skin tones in, many of them are coming out bright red/magenta tinged.
In LR4 under Color Management in the Print Module, I am doing what I have always done:
Print resolution: Unchecked
Print Sharpening: checked, as appropriate for the media
16 Bit Output: Checked (have also tried Unchecked)
Profile: appropriate for the particular printer and paper, as provided by vendors
Now when I press Print, the driver dialogues come up. Under the Color Matching drop down, the options ColorSync and Vendor Matching are frayed out. This is because I have selected which profile to use in LR4, and therefore LR4 is handling colour management instead of allowing the printer to handle it.
Under Main>Color Mode>Set>Matching I see that the Matching Mode is Color Sync and the Input Profile Settings are grayed out as sRGB v3.0 (Canon).
Now this is clearly an Adobe RGB file (A Nikon NEFF) and I believe that the problems I am seeing are gamut related between Adobe RGB and this Canon sRGB. However, I can't find a way of changing the Input Profile.
I don't remember this option appearing in previous versions of the ipf6300 driver.
Does anyone have any suggestions. Cold beer on me!!!
