CS5 prints too light using new Mac, perfect from older Mac?

Jul 22, 2012 2:37 PM

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.

    you don't mention your workflow settings, see


    Photoshop CS6 Printing Epson


    after that you will likely need to post your own series of screenshots

    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
