Tips for getting more accurate color and truer print previews in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4
Head to Print Settings and choose Printer Settings from the pulldown menu (the dialog box varies with the printer driver and OS). Select the paper type that suits the profile you used for soft proofing and that you’ll choose in Step 6. If your paper type is grayed out, see if you need to set it for manual feed; Epson’s driver for the Stylus Pro 3880, for example, often requires manual feed for its Fine Art papers. Then fill in the rest of the settings: Make sure Color Mode is turned off so you can pick your own profile later. Choose the best resolution and uncheck High Speed if the print will be framed. Click to save your settings.
When to Print 16-bit
Some printers can print 16-bit. If yours doesn’t, you won’t see an option. If it does, check the box—even if you didn't shoot with a camera that captures 14-bit files. Depending on your conversion, you might still see a benefit.
