How to Get the Best Print Out for Scrapbooks
Have you ever wondered why your printed pictures look nothing like what you see on your monitor? That’s because the color profile for the web is different from the color profile used by your printer.
In this post, I’ll explain how to get the correct color profile for your printer.
Monitors display the primary colors as light of red, green, and blue (RGB). All other colors are a mixture of primary colors.
On the other hand, printers use CMYK profile. That's cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. To get the best printouts, you have to use the printer profile so that what you see on the screen is what's printed.
If you’re creating for the web, set up your documents with a web color profile. However, when you want to print out your creations, set up your document’s color profile for print.
In summary, if you want to preview your picture, make sure you set up your file in the correct color profile for your printer.
