Set color printing options in ColorSync Utility on Mac
Choose advanced options for managing the document’s colors, or you can print the document without any color management.
Color pop-up menu
Choose any of the following:
Prematch to printer profile: Controls the color management of the printed output.
Hand off to printer: Lets the printer control the color management of the printed output.
Print as color target: Prints the document without any color management. This option is available only if the document uses the same color space as the printer; for example, you’re printing an RGB document on an RGB printer.
Intent pop-up menu
If you chose “Prematch to printer profile,” click the Intent pop-up menu, then choose one of the following:
Perceptual: Applies realistic-looking colors, useful for photographs.
Relative Colorimetric: Maintains color accuracy, when specific colors are required for certain images, such as logos.
Saturation: Maintains the vividness of colors, useful for graphics such as pie charts and bar graphs.
Absolute Colorimetric: Adjusts the colors to account for the differences in white points.
