I don't have color profiles. I'm obviously a noob @ this! I spent so much on the equipment, I got some cheap ink to learn with. I know the saw grass inks come with their profile software, can I buy it in small bottles?

I searched around here on the site, and googled some things, to no avail. I did read somewhere that you can set the printers profile to a custom profile also, but they didn't say how. I use photoshop and Illustrator creating images. If you can help me again that would be great!
Thanks
JR

Dude, you are awesome! I searched the net, any I think I got it! Just download it anywhere and right click it. The top option is install profile. Than for all of your help!

No probs. Now just set photoshop as on screen shoots. When you open some photo you should see mismatch profila msg. ALWAYS choice to use working space so in this case is adobe RGB. When printing just pick your icc as on picture an off you go. Let me know if profile good. If not i will try to find something else.

Emulate adobe illustrator 6 / custom / monitor color / north American general purpose 2 / n American newspaper / n American pre press 2 / n American web-internet / Europe general purpose 3 / Europe prepress 3 / Europe web-internet 2 / and some Japanese options pretty similar.....

yeah that was a dummy move. :) I figured that shortly after I replied. When I check the 3 boxes under the image it tells me it can't do it because of the invalid profile. I tried to print anyway, and it wouldn't print! Says "could not print because the ICC profile is invalid!

match color prints
Gamut warning
Show paper white
Also if I tried to resize or center it gave me the same warning about the profile. I really appreciate everything you are helping me with here!
