Adjusting Colors with the Printer Driver
To use driver matching when printing, turn on the printer driver's color correction function. Driver matching
accurately applies the characteristics of data displayed on the monitor and allows you to obtain print results
of impressions that are close to those displayed on the monitor.
• When printing using driver matching, Canon recommends that you set the monitor and the environment
light as follows:
Color temperature: D50 (5000K)
Brightness: 100 to 120cd/m2
• Environment light
Fluorescent light for D50 color evaluation (color temperature 5000K, high color rendering
Brightness when looking at printed materials: 500 lx ± 125 lx
• When printing from an application software that can identify ICC profiles and allows you to specify them,
use a printing ICC profile in the application software, and select settings for color management.
The procedure for adjusting colors with the printer driver is as follows:
1. Open the
printer driver setup window
2. Select Advanced Settings
From the Main tab pull-down menu, select Advanced Settings.
