• ColorSmart/sRGB: ColorSmart/sRGB is an appropriate option for most

print jobs. It is used for most Web-based documents and current imaging

AdobeRGB, turn off the color management in the application and allow the

printer software to manage the color space. Use the AdobeRGB setting for

documents or photos that were originally created in the AdobeRGB color
