    Colour Issues - Print & Preview


    Overview: My print preview colour does not match the original image colour.

    This has been true since buying this Toshiba with Windows 8 preinstalled. Prior to Win 8 I had a machine with Win 7, and used Spyder4express, and SpyderPRINT for my colour management with no issues. I've recently installed and calibrated my Win 8 machine to try to fix the fact that all prints are off colour and cold, and to maybe fix that in print preview, the print won't match the saved image. Calibrating hasn't helped. Btw, my print matches the preview, but I want it to match the saved file that I've worked on.

    I hope you understand my problem. Here's a screenshot, the smaller image should be the same as the larger image in the background! Whether I try to print from Photoshop, Word, Lightroom, Photo Viewer, or Windows Explorer, the colour never matches the saved image. How do I fix this?

    Hello,
    Are you using the ICC Profiles from Epson for your printer?

    I have used so much paper and ink. I've tried Epson's icc profiles, I've tried using the profile created by SpyderPRINT, and I've tried whatever I could find on the system.

    With the printer profile created by SpyderPRINT, I get the colour that's in print preview - but that's not the colour I want. I want the colour of the saved image. I've edited and saved my own jpgs, I've tried printing images from the web, I've tried printing tiffs - all have the same problem. The print preview and printed image do not match the image on my computer, as seen in the first post there.

    Ideas?
