Thanks for your response. One thing that I don't get is the scanned artwork on my monitor does match the artwork so the colors are represented. There is a shift in colors when it is printed. Is it an Apple system vs Adobe color issue? Anyone have the same problem and it resolved when you updated. I have to make some major software /filters updates besides in psd and Mac OS so I wanted to find out if it's a possible solution to my issue of color matching.
Understanding color management requires throwing out all the preconceived notions about color, because most of them are wrong.
The obvious conclusion is to say that the colors are represented in your file since the monitor matches the artwork better than the print.
However, many things that seem obvious about color management are completely backwards.
To reiterate what Bill said, just because the monitor matches the artwork better than the print doesn't mean that the artwork's colors are represented in your file, and doesn't mean that it's your printer shifting colors. No matter how much you spend, there isn't a monitor capable of displaying all the colors that today's top end printers can create. What you see on your monitor is not what's in the file. It's (quite) possible that for some of the "color shifts" you're seeing, that the scanner captured them incorrectly, that your printer is matching what's in the file, and it's your monitor that is shifting some of the colors.
