I just printed the same file on two different papers. One was Canons photo paper pro II 4 x 6. The other was Canons photo paper pro platinum 13 x 19. Using Canons Pro 9000. The paper profile in CS5 was PR1 for both prints. In the printer properties I did select Photo paper Pro II for the 4 x 6 and for the 13 x 19 I selected Photo paper pro platinum. The platinum print was darker than the photo pro II. Is this due to just the different paper profiles?

ICC profiles are specific to the printer/paper/ink combination. Using the wrong profile, you would absolutely expect to see a difference in the print output. Additionally, different paper types have different gamut ranges and white point, so even with the correct profile and media type setting, you'll still see a difference.

I will attribute it to the different gamut range and white points then. The colors on both prints where the same.

Isn't this why there are countless varieties of inkjet photo papers? Differences in texture, tone, gamut, contrast ratio, and many other print qualities.

Yes I imagine so. It just adds another problem for me. When I get the photo editied so it looks right in CS5 and then print it. With one paper I'm spot on and another darker than I would have liked.

Work with one paper until you master it. Take notes. Record adjustment curve actions... yada yada...
