AuthorSubject: Blue Skies on Monitor Turn Purple on Print   [Go to Bottom of Page]
John Hollenberg
Posted on Sat Jun 21, 2003 11:00 PM

I have been trying to figure out why skies turn a bit
purple in print compared to the image on my monitor.
Most other colors (with the exception of some reddish
browns) are a very close visual match. I read about the
"blue turns purple" problem on Bruce Lindbloom's site
at http://www.brucelindbloom.com/index.html?MunsellCalcHelp.html#BluePurple
but the problem isn't related to out of gamut colors.
Posted on the Colorsync mailing list about 6 months ago,
but never figured out what was happening.

Problem is illustrated as follows:

First, calibrate monitor (Mitsubishi 2060u) to D65 with
Eye-one pro and Profilemaker Pro 4.1.5.
Create a document in L*a*b* colorspace in Photoshop.
Fill with color 51, -1, -46. Convert to D50 custom printer
profile for Epson 2200. L*a*b* value now reads 51, -1, -47
with eyedropper in photoshop. Make print with custom profile,
measure with Eye-One Pro in reflective mode: 50, -1, -47 (so eyedropper
value and printed block match very closely).
Now measure color block on screen in Photoshop with Eye-One
Pro in emissive mode (D50): 50, -.4, -61.

Color block on screen and print do not match visually (print under D50 light), whether using soft-proofing or not. Based on the measured values, I wouldn't expect
them to.

The following match visually:

Photoshop Lab Document (Screen) Photoshop Lab Document (Print)

51,-1,-46 50, 0, -61 (50, -1, -56
after conversion to printer profile)

51,4,-43 51,-1,-46

Is this a consequence of profiling monitor to D65 and lighting condition is D50?
Suggestions for getting a closer screen to print match (or is this as close as one
can get)? Should I consider profiling monitor to a point between D50 and D65
as Don Hutcheson suggests at http://www.apple.com/colorsync/stories/hutcheson/ ?

Any thoughts appreciated.

--John
