Colour Management

Post by gamingdynamics » Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:47 am

Hi there,

I'm using the 'Roland Color Library' in Illustrator and use those range of colours on my T-Shirt designs.

What is the best colour management setting on VersaWorks to use to get a true likeness of the colours I see on my screen?
I'm asking this so customers don't see a difference in the Photoshop T-Shirt mockup to the actual printed garment.

Thank you.

What colour management are you using in Photoshop? You could try the density control colour management which removes the colour management from VersaWorks, keeping your exisiting setting from Photoshop.

That being said are you using a colour calibrated display and have you profiled the screen/printer?

Not sure what ICC I use, the standard one I guess that Illustrator uses just with CMYK.

Where is the 'density control colour management' option?

I'm not using a calibrated display, no and no to profiling.

In VersaWorks look at the quality tab and then colour management at the bottom of the panel.
