AuthorSubject: 2200 prints dark and with cast   [Go to Bottom of Page]

So I did the classic mistake. I changed two things at the same time and now I can't figure out what is going on.

With the price drop on the Colorvision Spyder, I finally picked one up after having relied on Adobe Gamma previously. I installed it, removed the Adobe Gamma stuff from the startup menu, and ran the calibration. Other than being surprised by the request to reduce contrast at the end to reduce luminesence (to 86), everything went fine. When I went into Adobe Photoshop (CS) and looked at a few images, I didn't notice any major changes, but then again, I wasn't having any major problems before so this wasn't surprising.

I then thought to myself (there's my first mistake) that I should switch over to usign the "print with preview" method, from what I was doing before which was to use printer management and select my paper from the Epson printer driver. Of course I then thought further (mistake 2) that I should update the driver at the same time so I'd get used to the new method all at once.

I then went into "print with preview" and set source space to document, print space to my premium luster profile from the Epson PIM pack, chose relative colormetric and black pint compensation, and clicked print. On the printer driver I went into the properties and chose Photo, advanced, ICM managmenet, and no color management from the printer, and pop off the print button. Outcome: a fairly heavy Red or (mayby a bit Magenta) cast.

To try to debug, I went back into "print with preview" and chose printer color management to go back to using the printer drive to color manage. When I did that I got a very heavy yellow cast as well as a very dark print.

Since then I've tried to reinstall the printer driver from my CD in order to go back to the old driver, but it seems to see the new driver and leave it there.

I can't imagine I've put enough information here in order for anyone to have advice, but you never know.

Oh yea, my color settings are RGB: Adobe, Converstion Options--Engine Adobe(ACE), Intent: Perceptual.

I'm going to go off and try to pull the cast off in the driver, but if anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful.

Thanks,
