printing from Photoshop/Lightroom using ProPhoto RGB

Post by mete » Thu Nov 07, 2019 9:27 pm


I am just trying PrintFab at the moment, and printing with Epson P800 and using photoshop and lightroom. I understand printer profile has to be set to the same thing as in PrintFab color space in print settings. In the help, only AdobeRGB or sRGB is mentioned. I am working with photographs, and ProPhoto is my default color space, and I do not want to convert the images to Adobe RGB.

So my question is, if I add ProPhoto RGB to PrintFab colorspaces and then use ProPhoto RGB as printer profile in photoshop and lightroom as well as color space in PrintFab print settings, does that mean the document will stay in ProPhoto ?

this is correct, you should always select the same color space in the Lightroom print settings and in the PrintFab settings:

Your photos will always stay in the original color space, the conversion is only performed on the image data that are sent to the printer driver.

Note: I have added the "ProPhoto RGB" color space to PrintFab using the PrintFab Toolbox, dialog "Manage Color Profiles".
Adding additional color space profiles is only available in PrintFab Pro, not in PrintFab Home.
