I have just started with Elements 11. At first it printed ok. but when I tried to set it up with Elements to control the printer ( Epson SX400 ) I keep getting a message saying that ICC Profile is invalid, and the program will not let me print at all. My computer O/S is Windows 7, 64 bit. the Printer driver is one supplied by Epson EU to run the O/S.
I have tried returning to Printer controls settings, this has not worked. I have tried to print on a different printer (Brother HL-2250DN Laser Printer) this will not print either.
I have tried to print on my old Serif PhotoPlus program this is OK. So the problem is in my settings for Elements 11,
Do I Need to Reinstall the programme
The only profile listed in the Printer specification box is Epson IJ Printer 07 EEIJ_3.ICM
When I changed to Windows 7 (new computer) Epson website did not list a driver for this printer but Epson Europe did provide this one.
That is the only one that is listed on the list in elements that I can recognise as being for my printer
I hope that helps sort this out as all prints come out much to dark.
I would explain you the steps you need to follow if you are giving control to Photoshop Elements to manages color.
Step 1- Select your printer and then Click More Options at the bottom left of the Print window.
Step 2- No click on Color Management tab.
Step 3- Now from "Color Handling" drop down select Photoshop Elements Manages color. As you select this option "Printer Profile" drop down will become enable.
Step 4- If Image Space is sRGB then select sRGB profile from Printer Profile drop down else select Adobe RGB.
Step 5- Click On Printer Preferences button. It will open your printer's preferences dialog.
step 6- Now click on "Main" tab and then click Advanced button.
step 7- Now under "Color Management" section please select No Color Management here.
step 8- Click OK and come back to main Print dialog of Photoshop Elements. Now click Print.
Note -If you choose Photoshop Elements manages color, it is very important that you disable color management in your printer driver.Letting the application and the printer driver simultaneously manage colors during printing results in unpredictable color.
Try with above written steps I hope it would help.
