You will rarely get what you see on the screen without lots of experiment. The reason being that your screen is Backlit, so what you see is not what you are going to get. Often that pic that has a nice glow appears quite ordinary and even darker when printed. Print thumbnail first and then alter parameters and print thumbnails again till you get as close to the onscreen pic as you can.

also use some of the customizable features in PRINT properties when you send it to the printer

Color doesn't look like what is on computer screen... printing from InDesign and Photoshop... same results from each program.


first of all, your screen is probably not correctly calibrated to show the colors right. Same goes for your copier, try calibrating the colors. Press the menu button (it's a button next to the screen, looks like a star with a head around it)

- Then press Adjustments/Cleaning
- Auto Gradation Adjustment
- Full adjust
- Print page 1
- Put the paper on the copyglass, with the black toner facing the back of the machine.
- Press Scan
- Then Print page 2
- Scan page 2
- Print page 3
- Scan page 3.

Now the colors are calibrated. If it still doesn't match, try calibrating your computers screen so you can see the real colors.

I just installed a Canon mx300 on my Mac (runs 10.4.x) and all seemed to go well. I can print but the black letters don't print black (actually, the same happens if I have colored text mixed in). It's...


If the colors in your document don’t look right, you can change whether colors are managed by ColorSync or your printer.
To change color management options for printing:
Open the document you want to print.
Choose File > Print.
If the Print dialog contains only two pop-up menus and some buttons across the bottom, click the disclosure triangle beside the Printer pop-up menu.
Choose Color Matching from the print options pop-up menu.
Select one of the following options:
Select ColorSync if you want the application you’re using to control the color management of the printed output.
Select “In printer” if you want the printer you’re using to control the color management of the printed output.
If you select ColorSync and don’t believe the correct profile is selected for your printer, you may be able to change it. If you see a Profile pop-up menu, choose Other Profiles from the pop-up menu, and select a new one.
I hope this info will help to sort out your problem..Regards

Here are the directions for Tec Color correction. If this doesnt work then replacing the print head is the most likely solution.

Press Match SWOP Press: Matches specifications for Web Offset Publications. Euroscale: Matches Fogra glossy paper specification. Commercial: Approximates U.S. commercial press target. SNAP Press: Matches specifications for Newsprint Advertising Production. None Applies no color correction. Use with other color management tools, such as International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles, ColorSync, or the PANTONE Color Chart for the printer. Black & White Converts all colors to shades of gray From the workstation, select the color correction in a supported driver. Microsoft Windows 98 SE / ME / 2000 / XP/ Server 2003 / NT 4.x Operating Systems (OS): NOTE: Some of the color corrections are grouped under Office Color or Press Match. 1.

Photoshop cs3 install problem


Hi there,

First of all follow the instructions on this kb file:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315346

If you have previously installed cs3 you may have some residual files from the previous install still lurrking in the system files and registry which need removing. Or it may be that your cs3 installer files have become corrupt. to check this simply, do a file copy of the installer. If it copies ok it is likely not corrupted.

All the best

Creating Halftone Dots


in photoshop you can use a filter to create dots you can actually see on screen, cant remember exactly where it is, but it is in the filter menu. Also to print halftone dots you hit print and go into the print preview dialogue box, click on the screens button. another dialogue opens uncheck use printer defaults. This allows you to specify what frequency angle and dot shape you would like for each color you are printing. By default CMYk are specified for the layers visual space, other spot colors can be added using channels and will show up within this dialogue along with CMYK options. however, you can only have one channel selected at a time to get it to print correctly.
Similarly in illustrator, the options are in the print dialogue. detailed info about each of these processes can be found in the help menu of the respective programs. you may want to check out this link. Many of these questions are answered in this forum all the time. http://screenprinters.net/articles.php

Printer: Canon PIXMA MP610 Operating system: Mac OS 10.4 Problem: Printing 4x6 photos is excruciatingly slow from iPhoto and Photoshop CS3. I thought it may have been something to do wireless printing,...


When printing from programs like that, usually the "BEST" option is selected for the print quality.. Try going into the preferences and choosing a lower quality.

If that doesn't help, for Photoshop, you can "save for web and devices", choose PNG and then save to desktop, and use another program to print the file. Or when in the print dialogue, make sure "printer manages colour management"

Not too sure about Iphoto print settings, but there may be something in there.
