How can I tell which profile is used if I select 'Let printer/driver manage color'?
I used Prism Profile as usual and got a reasonable print, I then used 'Let printer etc' and got a better result but it could do with a bit of tweaking.
I can't see how to find what that profile is. The Job Log just says 'Let printer etc', likewise the cursor hover info.
It must be one of the ones in there!
Happy New Year to All, John

Happy New Year back to you, and thank you,

John see screen snap for the name and location of the profile that is used when you select LET PRINTER....
It is a wide gamut RGB profile that Mike developed many years ago.
When it is used,  the recommended driver setting is typically set to ICM instead of NO color adjustment or NONE.
Try it that way, I think you will like it.

Thanks Fred,
The folder was hidden so I unhid it. But nothing appears when I choose new profile and look there. I can only reach it by 'Let printer/driver' etc
Profile Prism can't adjust it because it says it's not a Prism profile.
I see you checked Relative colorimetric and Black point compensation boxes. I'll try those settings and see what happens.
The reason I'm playing about with profiles is that I have a packet of cheap paper that gives strange colours, a yellowish cast.
Teach me to get cheap paper!

Jon, that is a color corrected profile for use with LET PRINTER MANAGE COLOR.
So if you want to tweak the colors,
Look in the driver... You said Let printer manage color, right?
See screen snap. You have sliders for color and contrast and saturation and you can tweak
