How does one calibrate the color of a printer by hand or by eye. More specifically, the printer just has to match the monitor, it doesn't matter if they are both perfect.

Is there a way that you can print a test image, and then on a monitor have it adjust the color til it matches the printed version. Then when you print, it would do the opposite transformation , so that it matches the monitor?

  • Hi Comrade, is that for shape formed image or photograph image? – Santosa Sandy Feb 5 '15 at 4:02

Little theory. For each device, printer or monitor there is a ICC profile (ICC profile is a set of data that characterizes a color input or output device, or a color space (C) Wiki). As I understand you want to change only monitor settings.

There is a usefull tool for managing ICC profiles, for sure it will help with monitor, check if it can help with printer.
