Printing Photos from Digital
Photo Data
Digital photo data can only be transformed into photos after being transferred to a computer and
printed using a printer.
Knowledge of color management, that is unnecessary for developing silver salt films, is required
for this process.
This section explains the differences between silver salt film cameras and digital cameras as
well as the points to check when printing digital photos.
Taking Creative Photos Using Digital Cameras
Technological advances in digital cameras over the last few years have been remarkable.
When digital single-lens reflex cameras were first released, they were only used by professional
photographers with extensive knowledge. Today, digital cameras, especially compact models,
are popular among many professionals and amateurs thanks to their ease of use and affordable
prices.
Why do professionals and amateurs use digital cameras? Here are just some of the major
advantages of digital cameras:
Large capacity memory cards can be used.
There are no problems with things like replacing film and rewind failure.
Framed images can be checked on the LCD and captured images can be checked on the
spot.
There is no need to wait for images to be developed before seeing the results.
Captured images can be printed from computers.
There is no need to stay in a dark room or to send films away to be developed and
printed.
Working with a computer leads us into a new world of retouching that allows you to
correct exposure, contrast, etc. after capturing images to reproduce the real scenes.
Users are fairly limited in terms of what can be done with color adjustments in the
photo printing process once films have been developed. With digital photo data, you do
Page 492 of 560 pages
Printing Photos from Digital Photo Data
Page: 492
not need to have it adjusted/corrected by anyone else since you can edit it yourself on a
computer.
In other words, by using a digital camera, you can check and complete all processes from taking
the picture to printing it, and you can convert a picture in your mind into reality as you wish. This is
one of the major reasons for the popularity of digital cameras.
Points to Check when Printing Photos from Digital Photo Data
Digital photo data is only transformed into works of art after you edit/modify it yourself and print it.
When you print digital camera photos from a printer, are the colors really what you wanted?
Complaints about colors such as "The printed colors are different from the colors on the images
taken" and "The printed colors do not match the colors on the monitor" can sometimes be heard.
A way of handling color management for printing could be behind such complaints.
Color management, ICC profile and other factors, that are unnecessary for silver salt film
cameras, can be keywords for taking all the way through to printing digital photos.
This Digital Photo Printing Guide explains the procedures for using applications as well as
keywords and the basics of color management that are essential for maximizing your printer's
performance and for creating rewarding photos.
Let's look at the following points.
Check1 Are printed colors the same as the colors shown on the images taken?
"The printed colors are different from the colors shown on the images taken." "The printed colors
do not match the colors on the monitor." One cause of such complaints about colors is incorrectly
configured color management settings. Follow the link below and learn about the basics of color
management and the required environment.

Essential Basics of Color
Management
This section explains the basics of color management that will help you maximize your printer's
performance and create rewarding work of art (in photographic form).
What is Color Management?
Let's look at the processes involved in printing digital camera photos.
(1) Capture images with a digital camera.
(2) Check the image you want to print and its colors on a computer monitor.
(3) Print it from a printer.
Colors captured with a digital camera, colors that can be displayed on a monitor and colors that
can be printed using a printer cannot be reproduced in the same colors when displayed/printed
on other devices, due to differences between color spaces supported by each device.
The color management system (color matching) is created to uniformly manage device-
dependent colors by using a common color space.
The color management system is generally used to convert each device-dependent color to a
common device-independent color space represented by Lab values (defined by lightness, hue
and saturation), then to color spaces of other devices. The color management system is built into
operating systems under such names as ICM (Windows) and ColorSync (Macintosh).
An ICC (International Color Consortium) profile is required to convert (translate) device-
dependent colors to a color space common to Windows and Macintosh.
ICC profiles are compatible with color spaces for devices such as monitors and printers and
color spaces for digital photo data. By specifying ICC profiles correctly, you can display/print
colors of digital photo data in a common color space.
The flow of color management performed when printing digital photos by using ICC profiles is as
follows:
(1) Captured images are converted to Lab values for a common color space via the input
profile for captured images.
(2) For monitors, the images converted to a common color space are converted to RGB values
via the monitor display profile.
Page 495 of 560 pages
Essential Basics of Color Management
Page: 495
(3) For printers, the images converted to a common color space are converted to RGB values
via the printer output profile in accordance with the printer driver's characteristics.
MEMO
Are the monitor settings and usage environment appropriate?
The monitor settings and usage environment are important factors for correct color
management. Monitor calibration and ambient lighting are two of the key factors that will
affect display of the correct colors. Even if profiles have been set correctly, images may
not be displayed in the correct colors depending on the monitor settings and usage
environment. Check the following:
Check1 Is the monitor driver or a profile for your monitor installed?
Check Monitors in Device Manager. If standard monitor types or similar or another
manufacturer's name appears, download the corresponding monitor driver or profile from
the website for your monitor.
Check2 Are you using a fluorescent lamp designed for color evaluation?
Commercially available fluorescent lamps have different color temperatures and cannot
be used as light sources to confirm correct colors. To confirm the correct colors on a
monitor, it is recommended that you use D50 fluorescent lamps with high color rendering
properties that reproduce colors more faithfully.
Check3 Have you calibrated the monitor?
If colors are important to you, you can calibrate the monitor by using a specialized
application and measuring device to display the colors that you want. However, this can
be very costly.
Print according to the lighting in the viewing environment.
In Windows Vista, you can print using the ambient light correction function if you print from
Page 496 of 560 pages

Easy-PhotoPrint Pro.
Ambient light correction is a function that reduces the differences in the way images
appear depending on the place where they are viewed, displayed or exhibited. You can
print in color tones suitable for each lighting condition.

About sRGB and Adobe RGB
You must consider color spaces when printing digital photos using color management.
As mentioned earlier, an ICC profile is required to convert (translate) each device-dependent
color to a common color space. sRGB and Adobe RGB are most often used as common color
spaces.
The diagram below shows the ranges of colors that can be represented by digital cameras,
natural colors (the visible region), printers, the sRGB color space and the Adobe RGB color
space.

Maximizing Your Printer's Performance in Adobe RGB Color Space
As shown in the diagram above, the Adobe RGB color space has a wider gamut than sRGB.
This printer's color space also has a wider gamut than sRGB.
This means that the Adobe RGB color space provides a larger color space for printing, which
Page 497 of 560 pages
Essential Basics of Color Management
Page: 497
allows you to maximize your printer's performance.
For example, compare the two photos below. You should be able to tell the color difference
between the cobalt blue seas. Color differences are distinct in Adobe RGB when subjects
have vivid, highly saturated gamut.
sRGB image Adobe RGB image
Some digital single-lens reflex cameras support Adobe RGB. If RAW mode is also supported,
you can edit/print images using the Adobe RGB color space by processing captured images in
Adobe RGB and adding ICC profile tags.
Check the following when printing Adobe RGB images.
Check1 How can I check the colors of Adobe RGB images?
It is impossible to reproduce Adobe RGB colors on computer monitors other than those used
by professionals. Before you edit/retouch Adobe RGB images, print them using the Adobe
RGB color space and check the colors.

Check2 What is RAW data?
RAW data allows you to process images using Adobe RGB and save them with ICC profile
tags. Look at the advantages of capturing RAW images.
Printing Rewarding Photos from RAW Data
Check3 How can I convert sRGB to Adobe RGB?
You can edit sRGB images using the Adobe RGB color space. However, sRGB images will be
printed with increased saturation if opened in the Adobe RGB color space directly. They must
go through the correct color space conversion process.
Points to Check in the Application Settings
It is recommended that you print sRGB images using the color correction
function of the driver
You would not be aware of color spaces when using a compact digital camera. Generally,
compact digital cameras are set to use the sRGB color space.
sRGB is a color space designed to display uniform colors on digital cameras and monitors.
On a monitor, you can check the images in colors as close to the original colors as possible.
Use the color correction function of the driver when printing sRGB images so that you can
check edited/retouched images on a monitor and print the resulting images.

In addition, you can print captured images in popular color tones using Canon Digital Photo
Color.
Check1 How can I utilize the characteristics of compressed data?
Exif is the standard file format for digital camera images. You can print Exif images captured
with a digital camera using the sYCC color space that is larger than the sRGB color space.

Camera Settings
This section explains shooting settings on digital cameras and differences in print results by data
type.
Digital Camera Settings
When you capture images with a digital camera, the image quality is significantly affected by the
number of recorded pixels (image size) and the compression rate.
Recorded pixels (image size) refer to the number of pixels comprising an image recorded on a
memory card or other digital media. The higher the value, the higher the resolution and the better
the quality of the image.
However, higher value of the recorded pixels means larger file size and more time spent saving
captured images. Note that if the number of pixels is set to high, you may miss an opportunity to
capture an important moment during sports photography, for example, where continuous
shooting is required.
The compression rate is the rate used to compress image data in JPEG format. With Canon
digital cameras, the compression rate increases depending whether you use SuperFine, Fine, or
Normal. The higher the compression rate, the smaller the file size.
The compression rate also affects the image quality. When the compression rate is increased,
noise caused by tonal variation tends to appear. Many of these noises show up in landscape
photos in which colors of similar tones, such as the blue of the sky and the green of the trees, are
likely to occur. It is recommended that you set the compression rate to low (by selecting
SuperFine) when capturing landscape images.
In other words, you can capture the highest quality images by setting the recorded pixels to the
maximum and by setting the compression rate to the minimum. However, the file size will
increase.
When setting the recorded pixels (image size) and the compression rate, it is important to be
aware of the purpose of printing photos, the paper size and the image quality you want.
When printing on 4" x 6" (10 x 15 cm) size paper, select 1600 x 1200 pixels for the best results.
See the table below to set the number of recorded pixels for the paper on which you are printing.

Printing Rewarding Photos from RAW Data
Although it is more usual to compress and save captured images in JPEG format, some digital
cameras allow you to capture images in RAW format.
RAW is a file format designed for computer-based image processing. RAW is supported not only
by digital single-lens reflex cameras but also by some compact digital cameras, and it is quite
common for many professionals and amateurs to capture images in RAW format.
RAW images cannot be printed from photo printing applications in most cases, and an image
processing application is required to adjust white balance, contrast, etc. In addition, RAW images
are larger in terms of the number of recorded pixels than images captured in other formats.
Then why is RAW used to capture images when it requires image processing and increases the
file size?
These are the advantages of capturing images in RAW format.
(1) While compressed data continues to degrade after being corrected on a computer, RAW
data shows almost no degradation.
(2) You can adjust images captured with incorrect exposure, contrast, etc. when processing
them on a computer to match the real scenes.
These two characteristics, no degradation from corrections and the ability to adjust on a
computer to match the real scenes, have made it possible to transform pictures in your mind into
actual images as you wish. This is the main reason for the use of RAW.
It is recommended that you capture images according to your own requirements. For example,
capture snapshots as compressed data and capture photos for an exhibition in RAW format to be
able to adjust them to your satisfaction.
Processing RAW Images for Adjustments
Check1 Adjust the white balance
You can adjust the white balance when processing RAW images with a specialized
application.

Check2 Adjust the contrast
You can change gradations of captured images. Increase or decrease contrast to change their
impressions.
Source RAW image After contrast adjustment
Utilizing Characteristics of Compressed Data
Images captured with a digital camera are normally compressed and saved in JPEG format.
Some photo printing applications only support JPEG format.
An advantage of compressed images is that you can process and print them from various photo
printing applications. In addition, compression of images allows you to reduce the file size and to
save more photos on a memory card.
However, you need to be aware that noise tends to appear when the compression rate is
increased and that the data degrades after being processed repeatedly.
Exif Print allows you to print by utilizing the information embedded in images captured with a
digital camera. Exif 2.2 images captured with a digital camera appear in the sRGB color space
when opened in an application, but are saved in the sYCC color space that is larger than the
sRGB color space.
Therefore, by utilizing the sYCC color space, you can print Exif 2.2 images in a larger color space
than the sRGB color space.
You can print by utilizing the information embedded in images captured with a digital camera
using Easy-PhotoPrint EX supplied with this printer.

Points to Check in the
Application Settings
This section explains the points to check and the procedures in applications when specifying ICC
profiles in applications other than Easy-PhotoPrint Pro, using Adobe Photoshop CS3 as an
example.
Checking the Application Settings
After opening an image captured with a digital camera in an application in which ICC profiles can
be set, you will need to check the input status of the image and also check that the ICC profile
setting is correct before printing.
Follow these steps to check.
1. Checking the Image Data
(1) Check whether the image is in Adobe RGB, sRGB or has no ICC profile.
For example, in Adobe Photoshop, select Print from the File menu. Image data
information appears next to Document under Print in the Color Management screen.
(2) If sRGB appears for an Adobe RGB image or vice versa, check the assigned ICC
profile.
Also, check that you have not converted the color space when opening the image. You
can assign the source ICC profile when selecting Convert to Profile from the Edit
menu.
2. Setting the ICC Profile for Printing
Set the profile you want to use for printing.
For example, in Adobe Photoshop, select Print from the File menu, and specify a profile
from Color Handling under Options in the Color Management screen.
Printing in Adobe RGB or sRGB Color Space
When you want to print an Adobe RGB or sRGB image in the input profile color
space, check that the input profile is set to Adobe RGB or sRGB, select the item that
allows the application to manage colors, then specify a profile for printing.
For example, in Adobe Photoshop, select Photoshop Manages Colors for Color
Handling, and specify the profile of the paper you want to print on in Printer Profile.
