Default Misc - Colour Management for Printing Photos

I just got myself (or the work) a new printer for printing photographs. Very pleased with it.

I'm now obsessing, having tried printing a few things from Photoshop, that it isn't printing what I can see.

So I got myself a Sypder 4 Pro, to calibrate my monitor.

Cool. The printed output is still not like what is shown. I'm following very specific guides to make sure I'm printing right using the right printer/paper profiles.

So, I have a question for the more professional photographers around here.

I have my monitor profile - set in windows to be used as default.

I have my printer profile with specific canon paper.

But, I also have Photoshop's work space profile. I don't know if it should set to aRGB for example and my monitor shows accurate because it's using the calibrated monitor, or if my workspace should be set to my monitor profile.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

I don't know how it relates to your printer, but Photoshop's work space basically acts as a filter. It doesn't change the actual colour values of your picture, it just filters the display of it within Photoshop to fit a particular colourspace.

I actually thought it saved with the file too.

I'm looking to understand the relationship between it and the monitor profile (mainly) as I think I get the relationship between it and the printer/paper profile.

My expectation is if I set everything up right, I should be able to print, and get something that is the same as on the display.

So does no-one else print from photoshop/lightroom and use proper colour management? Hmm, where else to try?
