  • In Settings go to Printers and scanners. Select your color printer, click the "Manage" button.
  • Go to Printer Properties, select Color Management Tab, click on the "Color Management" button.

In the "Color Management" Control panel find your device - color printer.

Now you may add ICC profile downloaded from the ChromaChecker server. 


In this example C252_Plain_Paper.icc profile is installed and associated with the printer.

Switching to the "Advanced" tab the user can specify which rendering intent will be applied.

All color transformations will be performed by an internal Windows Color Management Engine. For more demanding users that have to control all settings, we recommend using Adobe CM Engine and Photoshop extended Print Window. This solution is very good for most demanding printing tasks including proofing purposes.
