Chapter 87. Color Management > Color Managing Print Output

Color Managing Print Output

When it comes time to print your document, you can tell InDesign how to color manage your output in the Color Management panel of the Print dialog box. Note that the available profiles listed in the Profile popup menu here depend on the Color option set in the Output panel. For example, the Profile menu uses the document’s CMYK profile if you set the Color option to Separations, and it sets the composite profile in the Profile menu if you set the Color option to Composite. Also, changing the target printer can change the profile list depending on whether you’ve targeted a CMYK driver (like an imagesetter) or an RGB driver (like an inkjet printer).

For more detail on the various color management options, see the books Real World InDesign 2 (by David Blatner and Olav Martin Kvern) and Real World Color Management (by Bruce Fraser, Chris Murphy, and Fred Bunting).
