with the printer...I did read this somewhere in some doentation :) ).
In Elements, I set the color management to use the profile that matches the
paper type I'm using. In the printer driver, I turn off color management by
going to the "Advanced" options, choosing "ICM" for the color management,
and selecting "None" in the settings drop-down.
I also tried some printouts using the default settings in the printer driver
(which, of course, include the paper type profile, since you have to set
that in the driver settings), leaving the settings in Elements to basically
do nothing (I forget what I actually chose to do that though). I can't say
that I can really tell the difference between those two methods.
The one printout I did where I accidently allowed both Elements and the
printer driver to do the color management, the photo printed out with very
obviously incorrect color. So the color management is definitely doing
something. It just appears to me that as long as you get one or the other
of Elements and the printer driver, but not both, to do the color
management, you'll get a nice printout.
