Solutions for solve color problems when inkjet printing

Inkjet printers have become the preferred technology for producing hard copies from digital photographic images. Inkjet printers produce these images by spraying ink droplets onto the paper. The droplets themselves are very small, between 50 and 60 microns in diameter, and the ink dries quickly. The finer the droplet ejection, the higher the resolution of the resulting image. The inks are contained in the ink cartridges and, when the cartridges are dry, they can be replaced by OEM printer cartridges or ink refill kits.

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.

The color problem of an ink jet printer generally involves a mismatch between what the photographer sees on a computer monitor and what he or she sees on an inkjet printer. They can be resolved by calibrating the display's color profile to the printer's color profile. Most inkjet printers can print according to the specifications of the various monitor profiles, but if the monitor and the inkjet printer do not use the same color profile, the printer output will turn off.

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.
