Hello.  I am running lightroom 6 with the Canon Pro-100 printer.  I cannot get the printer to replicate the photo I am trying to compose.  No matter how much I lighten or change tone in Lightroom. the printer only prints the original.  I have set up the printer for the paper I am using (Plus Semi-gloss ) as recommended by Red River Paper for their "Ultra Pro Stin 4.0.  I have tried both setting the color management by printer and or by setting the software color management.  Same results.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks David.  That seemed to work.  Somewhere along the way, I had Lightroom competing with the printer.  Not good.  BTW I too have the 5D MK III, and it is the best!

Well, I spoke too soon.  I am frustrated that I can't get the red out.  No matter how much I edit the photo in Lightroom, it seems to still want to put a red tint in the printed photo.  I have the printer paper set for "photo paper semi-gloss" as per Red River reccomendations.  I have the profile set for "UltraPro Satin 4.0"  I have Lightroom set to be managed by printer.  What the heck am I doing wrong?  Thanks.

A red tint to the print is an indication of possible double color management by both Lightroom and the printer. Make sure that if you are letting the printer manage the color that you aren't also trying to assign a profile in Lightroom. I use that same printer. Make sure you have your monitor properly adjusted by some method. I haven't properly calibrated my monitor. But I downloaded a test "calibration" print and printed it without any adjustments. Then I adjusted my monitor to match the print. Some will scoff at that method of matching monitor to print, but it has worked quite satisfactorily for me. My point is, regardless of how you decide to properly adjust your monitor, it has to be done. Otherwise you can waste box after box of precious paper and countless cartridges of ink trying to get things to print correctly.
