I'm trying to print a graphic design in photoshop to match an existing print. I have the existing print's LAB values that I am using in photoshop but every time I print my image, the colors are way off. I was under the impression that using LAB values will result in more consistent print matching (maybe I am wrong here).
What I have tried so far in photoshop:
- changed image mode to LAB
- plugged in the LAB values for my colors
- changed my printer profile to match my paper (downloaded profiles from Epson for the SC-P400)
- color handling is done by photoshop
There must be more to it than what I have tried so far. Any help in getting photoshop to print more accurately using LAB values would be appreciated.
