Why is the colour in my photographs not printing as they are in my laptop I have added new inks and cleaned the printing heads


Anonymous, there's a whole science of "color management" that you've invoked. First, what you're seeing is truly caused by lack of "calibration" in any stage of your workflow.
Your camera takes pictures, and whatever colors it sees are what it sees.
Your monitor shows you colors, but there's no standard calibration involved.
Your printer prints colors, but it too isn't calibrated to any standard.\

Assume for a minute that your monitor is set up to be a little too dark. You edit the pictures, and lighten them up so they look ok on screen. Now, when you print the picture, it's too light.

I've had similar issues, and have ended up purchasing a monitor calibration tool (Color Munki Smile) to calibrate my monitor, software "Profile Prism" to calibrate my printer, and now the prints I get look almost exactly like what I see on screen...

I am not getting the correct colors from my SLR camera. Is this due to my computer monitor?


Yes, the monitor need to be calibrated using an optical attachment (looks like hockey puck) that is placed on the screen using software, but the monitor must support automate software calibration. You can google for LCD monitor color/white balance calibration tools.

With my d90 reds come out as orange how do i stop


My guess is that it's not the camera but it's your monitor calibration. Reds (especially brightly lit reds) are the most difficult to render on a monitor. I would try changing the Vivid color option on the camera as well as saturation and even the color space options to see if you get any variation. Also, consider looking into a monitor calibration utility. If you have a color printer, you can print an image that looks orange on your monitor to see if it prints the same way.

Why do pictures taken with my digital cameras nearly always look too dark when viewed through my computer although they look fine on the cameras screen


It's usually just a matter of calibration between your camera's LCD and your computer monitor. The default settings on your camera's screen should be pretty close to accurate. Your monitor could be lighter or darker, depending on many factors, such as your preferences, or out-of-the-box settings. The best bet is to adjust your computer monitor to closeley match your camera's LCD.

Monitor calibration


In the menu, goto colour temp settings and adjust as needed.
The last item (from memory here) is an option to reset the monitor back to factory defaults, you could try that also.
Hope that solves your issue.

How do I calibrate my monitor? I have a new epson 3100z and a Epson photo Printer890... PIM is a joke..... I use adobe for image editing and image expert to print... My photos look great on the monitor but...


PIM uses the exif-info in your original jpg. I'm not sure, but I think if you edit the picture this exif becomes useless (because it relates to the original), even if you save the file including the exif-info. Also, you apparently you need additional printing software to make use of PIM. This was in the news on this site sometime ago. If you search, you can find out where to download this software. If you've got photoshop, you should also have a program called adobe gamma. With this you can calibrate your monitor. You should be able to find it under start->configuration. When you have calibrated your monitor, you should of course not use the settings on your printer that push up the saturation/contrast of your images, or else you will get Disney-colors. (I made the mistake of using 'digital camera correction' on the 1270 myself). I get good results printing from photoshop, with a calibrated monitor as well as some media profiles for the paper I use (just calibrating your monitor will probably be enough to get pictures that are close to what is on the screen, I just haven't tried that yet). If you want to calibrate your monitor, there are some good tips on http://come.to/digitaldarkroom. (it's where I got what I know about this). Btw, I cant seem to reach the site right now, but it will probably be up again in a few hours.
