Figure 16-3 caption

The author would like to change the current caption "Elements thoughtfully reminds you..." to this: In case you get confused about color management, when you choose "Printer Manages Colors," Elements reminds you to turn on color management in your printer's driver (that's what "Printer Preferences" means in the dialog box: the driver options in the OS X print window, described on page 431). If you choose "Photoshop Elements Manages Colors," the text changes to remind you to disable color management in the driver. She's also sent along a revised figure, which will go to illustrations to be included in the next reprint.
