    LR5 print question

    imwelsh

      I have a question about a print issue I’m having.  If I print an edited RAW image directly out of LR5, the colors seem quite a bit darker, but if I convert the image to JPEG, then print it, it looks much closer to what I see on the monitor.  I have an older HP Photosmart that doesn’t allow me to turn off color management and let LR control the color output.  Is it my printer?  I’m using a new iMac right of the box, I have not changed any calibration (I must say that I saw this issue from my old Mac), do you think it’s the monitor?

       

      I’m ready to buy a new printer, but would like to understand the issue first.  Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
