I have a Canon Pro-100s in which I use Octoinkjet ink on Black Diamond Glossy Photo paper. Without getting into colour calibration what are the best (basic) settings to use in the Print Module. I have tried the default setting which appear not to bad unless it is a dark scene like a sunset in which case I have to lighten the image a lot as it prints very dark compared to the screen.

I am only printing for myself and family so don't mind doing a couple of prints to get it looking correct.

Without calibrating your screen, you're basically taking a guess at what the photo might look like. Ideally you also want a profile for the paper/ink combination too.

However, the main thing to look out for is that the printer isn't set to automatically adjust or optimise the colours when printing. I remember when I first started printing donkey's year ago, before there was much in the way of info available, I had no idea that the auto settings existed, so I'd do a print, decide it needed to be a bit lighter, adjust it accordingly, and then wonder why the next print wasn't any different. The printer was compensating for my compensation. :rolleyes:
