 Post subject: Help with printing!
PostPosted: Wed Sep 03, 2008 7:26 pm 

So i've just got a Canon pixma ip4500. I set it all up as the manual said and everything is working. Now i was trying to print a picture of my fiancee and the picture came out very dark and had a noticable redish tinge to it. On my monitor it looks fine and i think my monitor is calibrated fine.

When i change the printer settings nothing seems to happen. If i print from say the windows picture and fax viewer the prints use the changes i made in the printer settings. But if i use photoshop it seems to ignore the settings. Anyone know the cause of this? With colour managing i've tried setting it to "photoshop manages colours" and "Printer manages colours" but neither seems to work.

Also when i just print the image from windows fax and picture viewer thing the photo still seems to have the redish tinge. So is my printer off? anyone know what i can do for this it's really frustraiting!

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the reply,

I finally got the photo to print out decently although todo it i had to make the picture so bright it didn't actually look very nice on my monitor. I saw a few posts online of people having this problem and i'm guessing photoshop could be a problem with it.

One thing i've found (not sure if it's me doing something wrong) is that when printing in photoshop it seems no matter what settings i use in the printers drivers and such have any effect. For example i went into the printer settings changed the colours to the extremes and printed through CS3 and it looked like all the other prints. So i changed the settings back and told it to print in sepia tone and again printing through CS3 seemed to ignore this and it printed the same. I'm not sure if i'm doing something here wrong but i can't see what it could be.

Robodent (the person from the other thread) said he prints through ViewNX and changed paper and tried diffrent settings and he seems to have it working fine now. So i'm gona try that, i'll let you know how it goes.
