Hi,
I'm printing on Ilford Smooth Pearl and use their paper profile, but it prints way to dark. Image looks good on calibrated monitor.
Any ideas what should I do?
Thanks!

Assuming the driver is set to NO COLOR MANAGEMENT, or NONE (depends on what printer you have), and the profile is properly made for your printer, and you selected the suggested paper type from Ilford, and the profile is correctly set in Qimage, then the monitor is too bright.
Calibrated for color accuracy is one part, but brightness should be set before color calibration.
How does the printer perform using same brand paper and  standard profiles from your printer download?

Fred,
Thanks for your reply.
I didn't print for a long time, so refresh my memory, where do I set NO COLOR MANAGEMENT. In Qimage or printer driver? Screenshot would be nice.

Sorry I took so long. I was helping a Qimage person over the telephone./
Just play this video.  I think the specific Canon Pro 100 driver is at about the 10  minute point if you don't want to watch other printers.
Hope this helps, and feel free to discuss it all you want.
Fred

There's usually a small paper in the paper package that reminds you to use Luster or whatever
