Great Article on How to Solve a Recent Color Management Issue

I just read an article by Mark Dubovoy covering a recent issue with printing targets for custom profiles using Apple Snow Leopard (10.6), Epson drivers and Apple Computers on Luminous-landscape.com. I’ve delayed my official update to Snow Leopard because I usually like to wait a few months to upgrade after initial testing. I’ll be testing this approach with Epson and other drivers soon.

You can find the article here with a step-by-step workaround to fix the problem:

    I sort of kind of understand what Andrew is saying, but am I wrong to think the problem requiring the work around will not occur if one is using \

    My question seemed to be chopped short. It is, will I be OK without the workaround if I’m using “canned” profiles from Epson, Moab and Museo, when I upgrade from CS3 to CS4 and from Mac OS 10.4.11 to OS 5.0?

    Hi Bard:

    The main issue is more with when you are making new profiles, but you should do a test with any profiles after upgrading using a standard image, such as the ones I have linked to on this page:

    (see L2.2)

    All the best,

    For the work around to “work” you must be able to turn off color management in the printer driver. I own a Canon i9900 and an Epson R800 – the most current drivers for Snow Leopard for these printers are supplied by Apple, they are CUPS drivers, and they do not allow for color management to be turned off in the printer driver – which results in double profiling – can’t even get the canned profiles from Red River for example to work on these printers with Snow Leopard when printing from PSCS2 or Lightroom 2.7 if you want the application to manage the color. Booting back into Tiger and all works well again. Are my printers scrap?

    I use a Canon PFI102MBK at the office and I had the same issue with Apple and the CUPS drivers once I upgraded to Snow Leopard. I was considering going back to the last OS and see if that helps. Any thoughts?

    Hi Brandon: I would use the driver on Canon’s website if possible (sometimes they are not available since Apple has made them available). Re: making profiles, Photoshop CS6 makes it a bit difficult to print targets with no color management in the way described in the linked article because you probably won’t see Adobe RGB in the dropdown list.

    Instead, I recommend using the Adobe Color Printer Utility:
