At this juncture, we are now ready to send our image to the printer. Yet before we do so, I want to make a quick comment about the work that we did in the previous movie. The one thing that I want to point out is that the whole point of that was this concept that you're going to turn on the Proof Setup and then make any needed changes. And that the changes that you make will vary on an image-to-image basis. All right. Well, let's go ahead and send this one to the printer. We'll do so by navigating to the File pulldown menu. And then by selecting Print. This will open up the Print dialog.
I like to think of this dialog as if it's divided into three columns. We have one here, middle column, and then the one on the far right. What I want to do is just highlight a few things here, which will help you to make even better prints. Well, for starters, we need to select our printer, the Epson 3800, a really strong printer, great. Next, Print Settings, this is where we can go to define different paper sizes. Next, we can also change the orientation of the paper. Here, we can choose to Center the Image or not. We can reposition it, if we so desire.
We can also turn this Bounding Box on or off. Now when this is off, we can't resize the image. When it's on, we can resize it. Now while you can resize it, I don't recommend that. You should do all of that work inside of Photoshop, and have all of that complete by the time you get to this point. All right. Well let's move to the third column. Over here in the third column, you'll notice that this Document has a Profile of Adobe RGB 1998. It's tagged with that color space. Excellent. Now how do we want to handle the color? Well, what we want to do is have Photoshop Manage the Color.
And here when we select that option, it gives us a little warning message. It says Remember to disable the printer's color management in the Print Settings dialog box. Okay, we'll be sure to that one, right? Next, we want to select the Profile for the paper type that we'll be printing to. In this case, I'm printing to the Epson 3800 with Enhanced Matte Paper (EMP). All right, great. Well, what about Rendering Intent? Well, there are a couple of different options, but typically what you want to do is first start off with Relative Colorimetric. If that doesn't work, try Perceptual.
Okay, well, let's leave Relative Colorimetric on here. All right. Well, now that we've made it through Photoshop's Print dialog, we're ready to click the Print button. And what will happen is when we click the Print button, it will open up our Printer dialog window, and let's take a look at that in the next movie.
