    Color behavior discrepancy: OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion) vs. OSX 10.7 (Lion)

    rmphoto Level 1

      Using Photoshop CS6.

      NEC 2690, freshly profiled with Spectraview.

       

      In OSX 10.7 (Lion):

      Color of image preview in Print dialog matches color of image in document window.

      • Soft Proof mode ON, colors match. (com-Y ON in document window, Match Print Colors/Show Paper White checked in Print Preview)
      • Soft Proof mode OFF, colors match. (com-Y OFF in document window, Match Print Colors/Show Paper White unchecked in Print Preview)
      • In both of these cases, the behavior is as I expect.

       

      HOWEVER,

       

      In OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion):

      Color of image preview in Print dialog DOES NOT match color of image in document window.

      • Soft Proof mode ON, colors DO NOT match. (com-Y ON in document window, Match Print Colors/Show Paper White checked in Print Preview)
      • Soft Proof mode OFF, colors DO NOT match. (com-Y OFF in document window, Match Print Colors/Show Paper White unchecked in Print Preview)
      • Ghost in the machine!!

       

      It seems that there's a handshake missing in the Mountain Lion color path.

      Anyone seen this? Any solutions or workarounds that you're aware of?

       

      Thanks,
