Also make sure that you go to file->preferences->color management
and have checked Color Management on.

If you have a sRGB profile for the screen and a CMYK profile for
the printer then you should see all the colors on the screen but
some of them will be duller on the printed output because they
have been converted to CMYK. My cure for this is to import the
RGB image into Gimp, increase saturation, and save.
