your description looks correct except the setting "Let postscript printer determine colors" in the Indesign print dialog, which may cause unwanted color conversions (e.g. in Photoshop it will convert color space to sRGB).
I include our icc profile instructions that also explain the settings in the Indesign print dialog (see the PrintFab PDF manual, page 56 for screenshots).
ICC PROFILE INSTRUCTIONS
To create an ICC profile for PrintFab, you should create a new profile entry in PrintFab Toolbox -> "Open toolbox for selected printer" -> "Manage color profiles".
You will have to select the type of media (e.g. coated inkjet paper or glossy photo paper), the print quality and the maximum ink amount (e.g. 300%).
The new profile will be visible as an additional media type in the print dialog. Use this media entry to print the profile chart => color management will be automatically turned off (until you execute "import profile data").
PrintFab driver settings
(open with the button "Printer..." from the InDesign print dialog):
InDesign print dialog settings
- tab "Main": "Media type" = <your new media type created in PrintFab Toolbox>
tab "Color": "Intent" = "No correction", "Mode"="CMYK" (or "RGB" depending on the ICC profile type)
- Section "Output"
âColorâ = âComposite CMYKâ
Section "Color Management"
"Color Handling"="Let InDesign Determine Colors"
"Printer Profile"="Document CMYK ..."
(Output Color will show "Composite CMYK", "Preservce CMYK Numbers" will be checked)
The resulting ICC profile can be used either in PrintFab (recommended) or in Indesign:
1) color management in PrintFab
- import the ICC profile in the "Manage color profiles" dialog of PrintFab Toolbox
- in the Photoshop print dialog, select "Let InDesign Determine Colors". As "Printer Profile" choose the document profile
- in the PrintFab driver settings, choose
2) color management in InDesign
- "Intent"="Colorimetric Relative"
"Colorspace"="ISO Coated v2" (the document color space)
- in the Photoshop print dialog, select "Let InDesign Determine Colors" and "Printer profile"=<the icc profile you created>
- in the PrintFab driver settings, use the same settings as when printing
the ICC profile chart:
- tab "Main": "Media type" = <the media entry you used to print the ICC profile chart>
tab "Color": "Intent" = "No correction", "Mode"="CMYK" or "RGB" depending on the ICC profile type
