I'm trying to print a digital shot from my Olympus digital camera to my old (and trusty) Epson 740. For some reason, the photos look almost solarized, with greyish blacks and hot pink flesh tones. I know part of the answer is to change the color profile, re-save, and use the checkbox (or don't use the checkbox) for the Epson printer profile in the print dialogue box, but for the life of me I can't remember how I did it previously. I'd appreciate any help.For these prints I'm still running OS9.1 and Photoshop 5.5 (I know, I know...!). Thanks in advance for your help.
It sounds like it's time for a tune-up. I don't think this is a color profile problem. The color problem seems larger than that. You didn't mention anything about the ink. Is it Epson inks? Third-party inks? When was the last time you made a print? Is the ink old?Try replacing the ink cartridges and run any maintenence utilities provided. Simple steps such as cleaning the printer nozzles may be all that's necessary to get you back on track. To achieve, photo-quality, ink jets nozzles are very small and subject to clogs. By the way, I loved my Epson 740 and I have no problem with OS 9.1, however the latest version of Photoshop is a thing of beauty. Of course that would mean an OS upgrade.....
Let me know if this helped.
