Re: Printing problems!

Hi Roger

Most definitely, the problem is brightness.
I can duplicate the brightness if i increase brightness by 36 in photoshop.

But this depends on the background of the image. +36 if the background is dark ( Trees or similar )
+30 if the background is bright ( Sky or siilar )

But it isn't an exact science as you can see, and was hoping that this calibrator might help.

I have tried to get info from the printer manufacturer, with out much sucess.

I use sRGB all the way through, as my camera is sRGB. I process and save in sRGB and the printer settings are sRGB.

I only use genuine manufacturers paper and ink.

If I start to add Gamma, it does increase the brightness, to a degree, but not enough, and the colour starts to change with this.
