I have a Canon TS-6000. I work in PS Elements 9. I recently read on Lifewire that the "no color management button" should be selected - I did this and am not sure what effect it will have on output. I recently printed a nice "powder blue" ocean and the printer spit out a rather green ocean. Not terrible but not what I want. I also tried calibrating my monitor - not sure if it has affected output. At any rate, is there a setting in PS that I can go to to fix this color error. Thanks very much.

You should never use the 'no color management' option. Calibrating the monitor with a hardware device like Spyder is very important to get prints which are more like what you see on your display.

If you are going to print with a printer like yours which is able to render correctly the blues you are after, select 'Always optimize for prints' as your 'strategy'. That means that the organizer will work in the larger aRGB color space instead of the limited standard sRGB one. I assume you are shooting jpegs? Is you camera able to output files in aRGB? There should be a setting in your printer to recognize the aRGB color mode. The gamut of your display may vary, even if it's calibrated. It's in printing that you'll see the difference in blues.

Try this:

  1. Print from Editor. The print engines in Editor and Organizer are not the same
  2. In Editor, go to Edit>Color Settings and check "Always optimize colors for computer screens".
  3. Open an image file and go to File>print and click on "More Options" and access the Color Management tab.. Under "Color Handling", in the drop-down, select "Printer Manages Colors."
  4. I have an Epson printer and utilize both Epson ink and Epson paper for optimal results. You may be well served using Canon products.
