I've bought some fine art paper and am trying to improve the quality of my prints. I have a printer (Cannon ip4850) for which most paper manufacturers don't have paper profiles.

I made 2 prints one soft proofed in photoshop using the canon drivers. The second I turned off Photoshop print management and left colour management to the printer. In the latter the colours were much closer to those of the original subject but of course I seemed to have less control over the outcome.

Any suggestions regarding using art papers on consumer printers?
