I have recently upgraded from CS4 Windows to a new iMac with CS5. I was getting good prints out of the PC although when we switched to Mac CS5 I have been getting de saturated prints, no colour concistancy across progams and it is near impossible to colour callibrate.
I have double checked that I am using the correct driver for the Xerox C320 Document Centre, I have experimented with changing colour profiles. I just can't get a good colour out of any of the applications. Illustrator is the worst. The prints are coming out nothing like when they show on screen. I am really confused as all of the IT experts we have consulted with had advised us that printing on the Mac would produce a better print that the PC although this is not the case.
If anyone has any ideas of how to fix this problem it would be greately appreciated.
Did you have CS4's Bridge installed on the PC? Color can be setup in Bridge for use in all Suite applications. Have you matched the setup from your PC workstation onto the iMac? It sounds like something has changed from CS4 to CS5, I mean, other than the computers themselves.
Thank you for your response.
I have Bridge installed on the Mac and on the PC.
I will take your advice and have a look at how it was set up on the PC.
Thank you for the heads up about Bridge though, I was un aware you could manage colours in Bridge.
