Photographers often complain that they use inkjet printers to print images that do not match the color of their digital photos. Why is that? Is there any photographer can do to synchronize two color profiles more closely?
The printed picture looks different from the image on the LED screen or the monitor because the printer uses subtraction to create the color. The printed colors are actually subtracted from the light of their printed white paper to make the other colors stand out. In order to do so, the primary colors of ink jet printer inks are not red, blue and yellow, but cyan, magenta, yellow and black(C M Y BK). Using these four colors, the inkjet printer can reproduce the entire spectrum of the other colors.
A color profile should be created for each specific printer, heat transfer paper, and ink combination, as each of these three variables helps to print the quality of the photo. The color and absorbency of the paper are different and the resolution of the printer is different. You must also consider ink formulations in printer cartridges or ink-filled kits.
Photographers often blame the color mismatch they see on the printer settings, or the problem that often arises when they are in the room where the light quality of the room is being monitored. Daylight is the best light source for judging the true color of the print.
