Print a color photo for an exhibition (Photoshop, PS driver)
This example uses Adobe Photoshop CS2 under Mac OS X, with the PostScript driver. Color management is done by Photoshop.
  1. Initial recommendations:
    • Choose an appropriate paper type for the purpose.
    • The paper type should be calibrated and profiled with the printer and the print-quality level that you intend to use.
    • For a correct preview of the printed image, the monitor should also be profiled.
  2. Open Adobe Photoshop CS2.

Print a black-and-white photo for an exhibition (Photoshop, PS driver)
This example uses Adobe Photoshop CS2 under Mac OS X, with the PostScript driver. The color management is done by the printer's internal PostScript RIP.
  note:
Application-managed colors could be used in this example, exactly as in the previous example. However, printer-managed colors will be used this time, in order to illustrate both methods of color management.
The recommended approach to creating a black-and-white image is to take a color image and convert it to grayscale in an image editing program such as Photoshop. In this scenario, however, this conversion will take place in the printer. If you want to convert a color image to black-and-white in Photoshop CS2, you have to go through the optional step 5.
  1. Initial recommendations:
    • Choose an appropriate paper type for the purpose.
    • The paper type should be calibrated with the printer and the print-quality level that you intend to use.
    • For a correct preview of the printed image, the monitor should also be profiled.
  2. Open Adobe Photoshop CS2.
  3. From the Edit menu, select Color Settings.
    • Make sure that More Options are displayed.
    • Working Spaces, RGB: Select Adobe RGB (1998) or sRGB.
    • Color Management Policies: Select Preserve Embedded Profiles.
    • Profile Mismatches: Check Ask When Opening and Ask When Pasting.
    • Missing Profiles: Check Ask When Opening.
    • Conversion Options, Intent: Select Perceptual.
      Figure : Color Settings dialog box
    • Click OK.
  4. From the File menu, select Open to open the image.
    • If the document has an embedded color profile that does not match the current working space, select Use the embedded profile. Otherwise, select Assign working space; in this case, if the displayed image does not look correct, try assigning it to other color spaces with Edit, Assign Profile (try sRGB, Adobe RGB, ColorMatch RGB and others) until you are satisfied.
      Figure : Embedded Profile Mismatch dialog box
      Figure : Missing Profile dialog box
    • Click OK.
  5. (Optional) Use Photoshop to convert the image to grayscale. The simple way is to go to the Image menu and select Mode, Grayscale.
    Alternatively, you can go to the Image menu and select Adjustments, Channel Mixer, to choose the percentage contribution of each color channel to the grayscale image, as follows:
    1. Check Monochrome.
    2. Drag any source channel's slider to the left to decrease the channel's contribution to the output channel or to the right to increase it, or enter a value between -200% and +200% in the text box (for example: 30% Red, 59% Green, 11% Blue). Using a negative value inverts the source channel before adding it to the output channel.
    3. Drag the slider or enter a value for the Constant option. This option adds a black or white channel of varying opacity: negative values act as a black channel, positive values act as a white channel.
      Figure : Channel Mixer dialog box
    4. Click OK.
  6. From the File menu, select Print with Preview.

Proof the output on the printer (QuarkXPress, PS driver)
This example uses QuarkXPress 7 under Mac OS X, with the PostScript driver. Color management is done by the printer's internal PostScript RIP.
The aim in this example is to create a concept proof of a press - in this case a Europe ISO Coated FOGRA27 press. QuarkXPress will convert the document and its images to the ISO Coated space and send it to the printer, which will convert it to its final colors emulating such a press. So there are two stages of color conversion involved.
