Problem printing out of CS5 -- dark & muddy prints

Jan 9, 2013 11:32 AM

Hi -- I am new to this but here goes...  I am having trouble getting good prints when printing out of CS5.  I have taken all of the calibration and profiling steps and my prints are coming out very dark and muddy.  I am printing on an Epson Pro 7800 and I am a Mac user (OS X 10.6.8).  I contacted Epson and they suggested printing out of Preview and the images looked far better which, they suggested, points to something in Photoshop that is causing the problem.  Suggestions?

    Can you post a screenshot of your print settings? Do you have "Photoshop Manages Color" or "Printer Manages Color" selected?

    10.6.8 - CS5 on an Epson 7800 should be working fine (it is here on a 7880)

     

    how does it work using an OEM profile (Epson Premium Luster, for example)

    We're printing to a 7800 all the time here at Adobe, without problems.

     

    My first guess would be that your custom profile is bad.

    You can't delete it after others have responded.  But you can mark it as abuse and add a message about why it should be removed, and an admin will follow up.
