Hey,

I attempted to print for first canvas print today and it didn't come out very well. It was very light and the colors were way off. I printed a normal print of the same picture and it came out great. I am using BreathingColor Lyle paper and downloaded the profile off their website plus used all the Epson print settings they recommend. In general do you have to make any LR3 or CS5 processing changes for canvas printing or just use your normal work flow? Any suggestions or turtorials will be appreciated!!

Another point to consider is the ink surface on canvas is quite friable compared to other paper surfaces so you will need to spray on a clear "finish" once dried to protect the surface. Think "MOAB Desert Varnish". The spray on finish will darken the print visibly, so the original print will need to be lighter than you think you like. This is something you must test and verify for yourself.
