Images edited w. Photoshop CS5 (v. 12.03) on a Mac running OS 10.6.8 print perfectly on my Epson Stylus Pro 3880. But the same files printed from a newer Mac running OS 10.7.4 and Photoshop CS5 (v12.1) print too light. Exact same printer settings in PS being used, same printer driver version (reinstalled to make sure not a bad driver), using the same .icc paper profile (also reinstalled), and using same batch of paper printed at same time.
Where do I start in determining the problem? Epson confirms driver is compatible. Everything else on the new system with PS works great. Gallery show in three weeks, must figure this out quick. Thanks.
Thanks gator soup, but does workflow steps really matter since the settings are exactly the same between the two computers. The only difference is the older Mac has PS v12.03, which works fine, and the newer Mac is running PS v. 12.1.
Ps update is 12.0.4 and 12.1, but you are probably missing something, by posting screenshots someone may be able to spot the problem
are you sure which one is actually wrong
do they display identical in both OSes
are both versions of Ps using the same embedded profile, did you confirm that
The older Mac running PS 12.0.3 is the color calibrated system that I have been using for two years w/o issue. The new system, running PS 12.1 is printing the same files too light -- all settings the same, and printer drivers the same. Thanks, your link is great resource for review.
