How do I print without color management in CS6?

Jul 6, 2012 12:01 AM

EVery time I print a test target for color profiling, I open CS4 so that I can print with no color management.  I can't figure out how to do it in CS6.  I must be missing something obvious, but I just can't find the option to print without color management anywhere in the CS6 driver.

    That kb note also needs updating to indicate it is applicable to CS6 too...

    Yeah, I noticed that. It also needs updates for current OS versions.

    As someone who prints Digital Negatives (there are quite a few of us out there now), the ability to print without color management is a huge liability. Why would you take that out of Photoshop and create a completely seperate application to do this? From inside photoshop, I can print with registration marks (necessary for multi-negative prints).

     

    So now there's Lightroom to manage the locations, open up Photoshop to apply curves and then figure a way to add registration marks to the file itself, the print from another app altogether.

     

    Even just the ability to add profiles (AdobeRGB tagged file, then print with photoshop manage color, AdobeRGB profile) works in this situation.. but for some reason.. you've decided to pick and choose which profiles we can and can't use. 

     

     

    ... unhappy with CS6

    Hum, Mac? Go blame Apple...they are the one driving this because of ColorSync (printing without color management s still possible with Windows).

     

    This has been discussed before...there are two paths in Photoshop CS6 (on Mac) printer managed color or application managed color. Pick one...then learn how to use it.

    Even Microsoft limited our ability to print without color management.

     

    The OS vendors don't quite understand customer usage, and think that printing without color conversions is something that they should not support.

    Quote of the century.

     

    Or maybe it's that a customer isn't supposed to actually think.
