I am only assuming that your image is in the printer space (or some close approximation of it) based on the fact that you said it printed correctly and that it displayed dark and contrasty in PS5.5. Your image would not be "tagged" with your printer profile. The only way to tell is to convert from your printer file to your working profile and see if it looks normal. I don't know why the images might be in your printer space (I am not familiar with PS5LE), but from what you describe they sound like they might be. Just try the conversion. > > > PS5.5 you can do a profile to profile conversion from your printer space to > > your working space (ColorMatch RGB in your case) > Why do I want to convert from Printer to Working Spaces?

If the printer is printing correctly (or you want it to) you should be concerned with how your printer sorts the image. Since you want to work in ColorMatchRGB and based on what you told me I think your images may be in your printer space you should convert. This ability to convert color spaces and control how your printer sorts the images is one of the great advatages of PS5.5. > > selecting your printer profile in the print dialogue > Not sure I see this.

No, what I meant was the pulldown menu in PS's print dialogue. I am not sure how ColorSync works into all this since I am on a PC. Just remember to make sure only one application is doing the conversion (PS in profile to profile, PS in the print dialogue or ColorSync). In the epson driver just select photoenhance3 (with no adjustments) or "normal" for the color adjustment, all in the advanced settings. > Thanks for yoyr help > > David Gordon > firstname.lastname@example.org Of course I could be wrong about the fact that your images are in your printer space. I am just suggesting the profile to profile conversion to check. If you can somehow find out what profile your images were in convert from there, though finding this is unlikely. You may even want to try a couple conversions from other likely spaces (your monitor space, sRGB, AppleRGB) and see if any give you good results. If they do then you've found your space and can convert your other images. If you can't find what space your images are in just use color/tonal correction to make them look normal. When you print convert to your printer space. I realize all this color space business is confusing, but it does allow you more control and consistency. -- Jeremy Scharlack - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
