Printing from Photoshop

When printing from Photoshop, Adobe recommends choosing "Photoshop Manages Color" in the print menu. However you will find that this will not automatically provide the optimum result. We suggest that you choose "Printer Manages Color" for a first proof. If the colors appear off, run a second proof using "Photoshop Manages Color" and compare the two. Then make final adjustment proofs using the color management option that gave you the best first proof colors.


Good Paper

This makes all the difference in a good quality print.

Kendall Digital Media has good paper available to its students. Talk with your professor about its location.
