Canon Pro 100 prints are too dark. Is there a way to lighten a photo by percent?  (I am an amateur trying to print photos of wife's oil paintings.)  I was told by a pro photographer who uses a 100 that she uses uses Photoshop to lighten her photos by 10%.  

I bought a Spyder5Pro and calibrated my monitor (Samsung 24" model B2430H) and Canon still prints darker and with less color vibrancy than I am seeing.

I need the colors to  "pop" more and am not being successful enough using the brightness layer level and trying the auto levels. 

Should I buy Canon paper.  I'm using Red River Pecos River Gloss 60lb

Are you using the icc profile of this paper or the Canon printer colours?

have you add a filter/softproofing to see if your image will print as your screen?

you can always add a brightness/contrast layer and bump the brightness 8-12%, sometime your computer screen brightness isn’t set properly. If it print darker maybe your screen brightness is set too high.
