I have an HP Photosmart 8450 and a MacBook Pro. I have recently been adjusting settings, properties and preferences in my Photoshop CS6 and now I can't get it to print right. When I print with the paper type/quality is set to paper, the colors are fine, but when I switch it to HP Photo paper, there is a bluish green tint to it. What can I do to correct this?
Thanks for taking the time to help me out!
You need to do a whole lot of reading on the subject of Color Management.
This would be a very good place to start:
It's not something that can be taught in a forum, question by question.
Photoshop is a professional level application that makes no apologies for its very long and steep learning curve.
First you have to calibrate and profile your monitor and set the resulting file as your monitor profile.
Then you have to set your working color space correctly.
Then you have to have the right target profile for every single combination of printer/ink/and paper.
Finally, you create a curves Adjustment in Photoshop's Soft Proofing feature to compensate for the effect the paper is going to have on the colors and brightness of your print.
If you're a religious person, at this point you pray, since you're not printing on an Epson.
I have to agree with Station Two. However, if it was working fine previously to tweaking things, you could try resetting the preference file: Cmd+Opt+Shift (Mac) or Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Win) as you initiate Photoshop's startup. Press "yes" when prompted.
