I have been experimenting with several Color Settings but primarily with Adobe RGB (1998).
Yes, I did use the Automate feature in HP Photosmart Pro, which produces nice results. It was when I tried to use the Print with Preview feature that I ran into trouble and I just felt there was something wrong with the printer or with CS2. Question: Will this Auto feature and Photoshop Managed colors be as accurate as the commands in Print with Preview?
A cyber pen pal suggested I leave the image's embedded profile as it is, then Proof Setup the image, Convert to Profile, use Print with Preview and Let Photoshop Determine Colors. It seemed round about, but it worked and now I am getting very good prints.
I purchased a book on Color Management. I didn't realize how little I knew about the subject until I bought this printer.
If you have another suggestion, I'm all ears.
Thank you for your response,
