Seems like something is not working in Cs4 Illustrator with Snow Leopard. Can someone give it a try to verify.
When I print to my Epson 3800 from Illust. It's not matching the same image printed via PS Cs4. ( It should if you follow a controlled workflow--which I do)
At first thought it was a color management issue, but everything is synchronized via Bridge, and I am using the same print settings, paper profiles , etc in both apps.
I then tried saving as a pdf in Illustrator. Same thing is occuring. Seems like the profile is not "sticking".
I did not have this issue before Snow Leopard.
If I open the Illustrator created PDF via Photoshop, then everything is ok....what is happening?
( have the newest drivers from Epson)
I have resorted to saving as eps from Illustrator and then creating a PDF from the eps using distiller. Then the profile for images seem to be recognized. Otherwise if I save as pdf directly from Illustrator to pdf, images are too overexposed--as are colors too light. (same issue occurs if directly printing via Illust,)
