    Lightroom versus printer manages color

    ericgraig

      I have a profiled monitor yet I'm finding that I get prints that are MUCH closer to what my monitor renders when I let the printer (Epson 3880) handle the color management than when I let LR handle it. Yes, I've turned off "Printer Manages Color" in the printer controls. I've tried both perceptual and relative colormetric and noticed no real differences. Also tried printing from Photoshop which produced prints that were furthest from what was displayed on the monitor. I'm using Brilliant Exhibition Luster Paper and what I believe to be the correct profile (BrillLusterEP3880PK). Overall, the prints have a magenta cast when using the profile and appear more neutral when using "Printer Manages COlor."

       

      Any ideas?
