Canon Printer Profiles – explained

The naming for Canon profiles certainly isn’t obvious.
Here’s a list of paper types:

  1. Canon MP970 series FA2 = Fine Art Photo Rag quality setting 2
  2. Canon MP970 series FC2 = Not sure about this one
  3. Canon MP970 series GL2 = Photo Paper Plus Glossy II quality setting 2
  4. Canon MP970 series GL3 = Photo Paper Plus Glossy II quality setting 3
  5. Canon MP970 series MP2 = Matte Photo Paper quality setting 2
  6. Canon MP970 series PR1 = Photo Paper Pro quality setting 1
  7. Canon MP970 series PR2 = Photo Paper Pro quality setting 2
  8. Canon MP970 series PR3 = Photo Paper Pro quality setting 3
  9. Canon MP970 series SP2 = Photo Paper Plus Pro Glossy quality setting 2
  10. Canon MP970 series SP3 = Photo Paper Plus Pro Glossy quality setting 3
  11. CanonIJPrinter2005 = generic profile

The quality settings are essentially 1, 2, 3 with 1 being highest quality.

Canon’s that do not have the semi-gloss profiles,
just use the Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy (PP-101) profile.
