    Prints not close to Monitor(yes my monitor is calibrated)


      The issue is that my prints are all coming out way darker/muted/desaturated with less contrast as to compared to how they look while editing them in Adobe Photoshop(CC 2018). I have read a good deal about printer settings, color management, soft proofing and tried many different settings and nothing has corrected the issue.  I used to use an Epson Ink Jet photo printer on this same iMac and I did not have these issues.


      Here is relevant info as well as some inserted screen shots.

      * Computer/OS iMac/macOS High Sierra 10.13.2

      * Printer: Canon Pixma Pro 100(with the latest drivers installed for the printer and connected via a USB cable).

      * I am running my printing tests using Canon Pro Luster paper.(LU 101)

      * My monitor has been calibrated using the spyder elite 5 system.

      * My working color space in photoshop cc 2018 is Adobe RGB(1998)


      My relevant PS CC 2018 Print Dialog Settings are...

      Let Photoshop Manage Colors/ Printer Profile : Canon Pro-100 <LU> Photo Paper Pro Luster


      * My Canon Pro-100 printer settings are:

      * Color Matching...

      The ColorSync radio button is selected by disabled. 

      The Canon Color Matching radio button is not selected and also disabled
