That is my understanding - that (at least the hp PhotoSmart) printer
anticipates and expects an sRGB image.
I am still working on this problem (and sometimes wish I had purchased an
Epson rather than the hp - the Epson appears to have more control settings
and, unfortunately ;-) I am somewhat of a control freak) but my present
understanding is that a printer ICC profile (WiziWYG's or Colorvision's or
others) will deal with this to a greater or lesser extent. Please let me
know what you find.
