Specifying Color Correction

You can specify the color correction method suited to the type of document to be printed.
Normally, the printer driver adjusts the colors by using Canon Digital Photo Color so that data is printed with color tints that most people prefer. This method is suitable for printing sRGB data.

When you want to print by using the color space (sRGB) of the image data effectively, select ICM. When you want to use an application software to specify a printing ICC profile, select None.

You can also set color correction on the Quick Setup tab by choosing Photo Printing under Commonly Used Settings, and then choosing Color/Intensity Manual Adjustment under Additional Features.

  1. Open the printer driver setup window

  2. Select the manual color adjustment

    On the Main tab, select Manual for Color/Intensity, and click Set....
