"Yellow cast on NX2 final photo on Epson 1800 vs monitor"


Union, US
          

After I feel I tweak all the adjustments before printing and now think I have a good photograph to print, when I print on my Epson 1800 the color is way too yellow. I am then forced to make additional changes in the color balance making the monitor picture too blue or red to offset the yellow cast from the printer. What can I do to correct the printing process? Will I have this problem with Photoshop CS5 just purchased?

Some questions:
1. Do you have your monitor calibrated?
2. Do you have an ICC Profile for the printer?
3. What color spaces are you shooting and working in?

Thank you for answering my question. The monitor is calibrated with Datacolor Spyder 3 Pro. I do not know about the ICC Profile for the printer? What is that? RGB I believe is the answer for both my camera and monitor.

There are several RGB color spaces. Actually, RGB is not, technically a color space. There are two common color spaces that contain the letters RGB. One is sRGB, which is common to point and shoot cameras and online print labs. The other is Adobe RGB, which is wider gamut and can be selected in (I think) most or all Nikon DSLRs. I know it is what I use in my D7000.

I think some print manufacturers offer ICC profiles for their printers. Since I don't do much printing at home, I'm not up to speed on that. I print a lot at Çostco and Costco offers ICC profiles for a printer at every Costco store. I'm not well versed enough to explain ICC profiles for printers. I would suggest a website called Dry Creek photo.

Good luck and sorry I could not be of more help.

I want to thank you Pete and dgs2 for their comments. With your information I am looking into various avenues to check the ICC for the printer and to work my way through other issues I have. I think Pete is correct when he says two different printing variables will work against each other sometimes creating the color shift.

Thanks again for your comments. Good shooting to you both.

>I do not know about the ICC Profile for the printer? What is that?

ICC profiles are LUT’s (look-up tables) that allow you to simulate the gamut of one device displayed upon another (simulates the gamut of your printer displayed on your monitor). It is used to soft proof the image in and editor such as Photoshop and it allows you to get a sense of what a print would look like.

I believe I have learned here and elsewhere that undesirable colorcasts are generally the fault of double color management (having your editor set to manage the colors without disabling color management in your printer driver.

Hope this helps.

Hre is a quick & dirty solution that will help, assuming you are letting the printer color manage:

In the Epson printer dialog, set the color space to Adober RGB, then dial down the yellow until you get the print the way you want.

It is better to turn off color management in the printer driver and let your software manage it, but that also depends on the software you are using and having good printer profiles and selecting the right one. If you are using Epson papers that are compatible wiht your printer, you have good color profiles.
