Why is a color print from CS5 so different from the same image in CS4?

I have made prints from the same file using CS4 and CS5, and the prints from CS4  are showing what I think is good color.  My monitor is calibrated, and I have always been quite happy with prints from CS4.  When I make prints of the same files using CS5, the color is terrible compared to the CS4  print.  I am using the same printer, same sRGB color space and all the settings in the "Print" dialog windows.  I make sure the Color Handling box is set to "Photoshop Manages Colors" and I then go to the "Page Setup" box and make sure Color Settings is set to Off (No Color Adjustments).  I am using a New MacPro Quad-Core Intel Xeon with 16 GB ram.  I did notice that Apple Software Update did install Epson drivers after I installed CS5 Creative Suite 5 Design Premium. The color using CS5 looks the same starting in either 32 bit or in 64 bit.   Another thing I notice is that printing on an Epson 2200 Stylus and using their 13x19 paper that the prints are being cropped to 5/8 inch into the full screen size of the images. I.E. The prints are losing 5/8 inch of what I see on the 30" Apple monitor. in both dimensions of the screen image. This cropping effect is showing now using CS4 and CS5.  I have "Position" checked for Center Image, and Scale to Fit Media is also checked.  I've been using PS since version 2 and have always been quite happy with the prints from my Epson printers and the prints from my Photo Lab, but the prints I am getting using CS5 are terrible. All the settings are the same in both the CS4 and CS5 "PRINT" windows.
HELP!!!!  :-)

I have tried all of these things. I have checked and double-checked the print dialog. Sheet after sheet of paper goes by. Ink, at $40 per tank, is wasted. Results are still wrong. I followed your video. You use an Epson printer. I use an HP. Different print dialogs. different results. Whatever worked in previous PS versions does not work now. PS CS5 requires new settings to get the results that match what was determined by years of evolution and fine-tuning.
I set up all of those print dialog parameters but it required an adjustment layer or two to get the results I got using previous Photoshop. So I could do that with every image I printed with good results using previous versions. There is nothing out of gamut in these images, so I don't have unrealistic expectations about more saturation in the prints. Anyway, it's an 8-color printer that can handle a pretty wide gamut compared to a 4-color.
Wade, I know you are trying to help but this finger-wagging "error in your ways" and "you need to change your ways" stuff is patronizing. I did "change my ways" and try everything in your video. All was not well on the paper. I'm glad it worked out for you but it didn't for me. Accept it. I'm not some novice hobbyist still getting the hang of Photoshop. I've been using Photoshop since version 2. Adobe changed something in CS5. I haven't seen Chis Cox or any Adobe staffer jump into this discussion and say otherwise. Maybe there are no answers from the folks who should know the most about it. Maybe they're working on it.
It's not the first time Adobe has broken a tool. Anyone remember what happened to Outline Stroke in Illustrator CS2? It had previously made a path that could be edited by selecting points but after CS2, it was broken. Illustrator made a filled path that was nearly impossible to edit with all of the overlapping points. It was finally fixed in CS4. It's hard to understand how a useful tool that functioned properly in every version since it was introduced became an unusable mess. Maybe that's the case with PS CS5 and printing.
With 4,300+ posts in 14 months, maybe Wade has more time to tinker and tell us about it. I don't.
Or I could just print in CS4. At this point it's not that important to spend several days of testing to be able to say that CS5 can print my legacy stuff that was created and printed with various color profiles over a 12 year period. Maybe a more disciplined approach to color management would be a good way to work in the future when creating images, I'm dealing with tried-and-true printable images that were not done that way.
As long as Adobe doesn't make me give up CS4 to use CS5, I'll use it for printing.

  • Print a pdf directly to a printer to avoid repeated ripping of the same image

    I have created a 3.000 pages document from inDesign heaving its page the same color image as background and variable data. The document exported as pdf. Because of this method the file has very little size (about 3MB). The acrobat print engine take the image once and the resulted pdf does not using a copy in every page but share it (very cool).
    The problem that I have is that when I print this pdf using the windows postscript drivers of my industrial printer (Xerox) then it takes very long time to ripp. I think that even if the pdf has only once the image the windows drivers does not understand this and send the image with every page.
    I discussed this with someone and told me to print the pdf directly to the printer without the interference of printer's driver. As an example he mentioned that when we have a postscript file we do the same to print it (otherwise the postscript code will be printed) using a command line like lpr and put as an argument the IP of the printer (or using some tools for this like the free PrintFile but tghis is only for postscript files).
    Could someone explain to me what he meant? And how is the syntax of the lpr?
    Thanks in advance

    Do you mean that the information for the label is huge on a letter or A4 page and you want to shrink it to the size of the label, or do you have a small region that you want to print to the label? Your work flow is not coming through at all and it is hard to help as a result.
    If you have a label size print on a large page, then crop the page to the label print. Then go to the print menu, select the label paper, set shrink to fit, and print. At least I think that is what you are looking for.

  • Why are images displayed in Photoshop different than the same images displayed in Indesign?

    My images imported to Indesign do NOT display as the images in Photoshop.
    They seem to display under different color profiles.
    The images in Indesign are more desaturated than the images in Photoshop.
    This is a problem because now I don't know which image appearance to trust!
    How can you get the Indesign images to look like the images in Photoshop?
    I use Photoshop CS4 and Indesign CS3.
    I import the images from Photoshop to Indesign for exporting to a PDF as the base for Blurb printing (www.blurb.com).
    I use the CMYK profile Blurb_ICC_profile.icc:
    The images in PS4 are converted to Blurb_ICC_Profile (CMYK).
    Both in PS4 and ID3 the color settings are
                               Working spaces:
                                  CMYK: Blurb_ICC_profile
                               Color management Policies:
                                   CMYK:  Preserve Embedded Profiles.
    The images are imported into Indesign by drag and drop from Bridge CS4. In Bridge it says that the images have color profile CMYK, Blurb_ICC_profile.
    I also do get "Unsynchronized: Your Creative Suite Applications are not synchronized for consistent color."  And I don't seem to be able synchronize between CS3 and CS4, or whatever. I do NOT depend on any synchronization.
    The settings above should be enough to show the images consistently in Photoshop and Indesign.
    Should not Adobes own applications be able to keep color consistency?

    Hi WA Veghe,
    >First: DO synchronize, makes sure you have the same profile settings and color mange settings.
    I don't seem to be able to synchronize between CS4 (Photoshop) and CS3 (Indesign).
    It seems I have to do without synchronizing..
    >I do not seem to find HOW you are diplaying images on you screen: with Soft proofing?
    What happens if you soft proof in Photoshop and InDesign on screen: View > Proof colors. Do you proof with the same profiles, both simulate paper and black on?
    I can simulate Proof Colors (working CMYK), but not simulate Paper, both in Indesign and Photoshop.
    Problem is: SAME settings in Photoshop and Indesign BUT the image displayed in Photoshop is brighter and more saturated.
    So which image should I correct after?
    thanks for all help

  • HT5930 Why does my Aperture v3.5.i look different from the one shown in the online videos

    Why does my Aperture v3.5.i look different from the one shown in the online videos

    Are you asking about the colorful icons in the video?
    The video must have been done with an Aperture version 3.2.4 or earlier. Since Aperture 3.3 are the icons drab and gray - the Aperture 3.3 Release Notes are calling this:
    Newly designed monochrome source list and toolbar icons.
    The Release notes will tell you, what has changed since then:

  • My wireless printer appears as offline on my Macbook, despite being visible on the network and printable from a Windows laptop on the same network. Was fine previously. Any thoughts?

    I have a MacBook Pro running 10.6.8.
    I have a wirelessly networked printer (HP PhotoSmart D110).
    All worked well until a couple of months ago.
    For reasons unknown, I stopped being able to print wirelessly to the printer from the Macbook. It appears as offline on the HP Photosmart utillity that pops up.
    I can print to teh same printer from a Windows PC on the same network.
    I have also logged onto the printer, using it's IP address and printed its test page, so obvioulsy not a printer fault as such.
    The old PowerBook on the same network doesn't print to it either.
    Grateful for any thoughts for quick tests or tips.

    Nice one Ron, you're a star.
    That was a complete fix.
    My preferences was slightly different, but it was the same approach.
    I had 4 printers listed. Some old ones that I no longer had and the one that didn't work. I deleted all of them, then hit '+'.
    It came back up, searched for new drivers, then I was able to print as per normal.

  • Same colors appearing different in the same document

    I have a document where I have filled different table cells with the same RGB color. However, they sometimes appear as two different shades, one darker than the other. I checked to be sure it was the same RGB color and it was, but it appears quite different both in InDesign and when I export it to pdf. Any idea why the same color is appearing differently in the same document?

    It doesn't appear to be a monitor problem, as the colors are different both on my laptop screen and on my external monitor. As I do not have the ability to print a hard copy before the file gets sent to the printer to make a proof, I need to know which is the "right" color (or at least the once closest to how it will print). Even if the colors are showing up differently on screen, if the swatch for both is exactly the same, will it show up as the same color once the actual hard copy is printed?

  • I have an Ipad and about to buy a macpro. My husband has a PC with a printer attached. Can I use the same printer or do I need to buy my own?

    I have an Ipad and about to buy a Macpro.  My husband has a PC with XP operating system with a printer/scanner. Do I need to buy my own printer or can we both use the same printer?

    It depends. The Mac Pro may come with Lion, or at least 10.6.8, and some printers are no longer supported (Windows 7 either).
    Also, you have to download drivers, sometimes from vendor. Sometimes apple has some thru software update, but not always.
    without knowing printer make/model it is next to impossible to say for certain one way or another. If you do buy new printer, you can walk away with more power in injet, laser, and scanners to make it worthwhile. I had to update all of those when support was dropped. amazing how much faster and better the new models are, and for much less.

  • Is it possible to stream music to multiple sets of speakers via airplay direct from iphone4s on ios7 in the same way that you can in iTunes

    Is it possible to stream music to multiple sets of speakers via airplay direct from iphone4s on ios7 in the same way that you can in iTunes / Remote?
    I know this can be achieved by the remote app.
    Airplay functionality appears only to support 1 set of speakers at a time?

    Does anyone know how or if it's possible to stream my music from the iPhone to iTunes via bluetooth or wifi? Essentially I want to share the iPhone's library with iTunes (I know one can go the other way).
    Here's why: I'd like to stream my music at work to my computer's speakers without taking the phone out of my pocket. I obviously don't have my home music collection on my company computer. And I figure if I place the phone on my desk to plug it in and play through iTunes, I could easily walk off without the phone. That would be bad (out of contact) and potentially sad (stolen).
    It seems right now the only bluetooth connection to a computer is for the remote application.
    Wait until November. Airplay/Airtunes iOS 4.2 announced for iPhone to iTunes/iTV. If you want a BT audio stream now, you can add a dongle to the PC for headset streaming.
    As far as WiFi file transfer iPhone to iTunes, you can't. There's talks on it but nothing concrete. Except JB.

    The desktop image is fine, taken from the exact same pool of jpg photos.  However, as soon as the slide show screen saver comes on, the images are scrambled.  What is it about the apple screen saver algorithm that scrambles the pics?

  • Generating a print doc deletes other docs in the same directory

    Generating a new doc into a directory that contains a different doc generated off the same Word template causes the older doc to be deleted.
    MY RH8 project is set up with a number of Print Documentation SSLs, one for each chapter of a book, all to use styles from the same Word template. Each SSL has the same Location selected, so all the chapters are by default created in a common directory, where each can be tweaked as needed and later all merged into a single PDF for distribution.
    But as each doc is generated, the previously-generated doc in that directory disappears. The newer and older files have different file names, were generated by different RH Printed Documentation SSLs, but the SSLs refer to the same Word template. If a previously-generated doc is still open in Word when I generate the next, then I get the "[template name] is locked for editing" prompt, I select "Open a Read Only copy", it runs on to completion, and then both docs are present in the directory as expected.
    The selected output can be doc, docx, or pdf, and always the earlier file is deleted. The selected Location in which the files are created can be inside the project or outside the project. It makes no difference whether the template's properties are set to Read-only.
    An obvious workaround is to copy each file out to a different directory as soon as the file is generated. But RH deleting differently-named files is so obviously a malicious thing to do, I can't be working it right. Any ideas?

    When you generate a Print Doc SSL, a log file with name <ProjectName>.log is created along with the generated word doc(s) in the output folder. This log file contains the name of the previously generated word doc(s). When a Print Doc SSL is re-generated, it read the name of previous word doc from the log file and deletes it and creates a new word doc with possibly new name given in the SSL settings.
    So, this is the normal behaviour of RoboHelp and works correctly if each Print Doc SSL is generated in separate folders. But when all the Print Doc SSLs are generated in the same output folder then the current SSL reads the log file of the previous SSL and hence deletes the previously generated word doc in that output folder.
    1. RoboHelp has an option to generate individual Word Document for each Chapter, it can be used instead of Multiple SSL with one Chapter each.
    2. If you can't use the first option for any reason, then delete the <ProjectName>.log before generating the each Print Doc SSL.

  • Printing the same image 3 copies

    how can i print the same image multiple times in the print screen i will go the the print/copies box and increase the nunber or copies to lets ay 3 and i still will only get 1 print oer print job so i will have to repeat this 2 more times just to get 3 prints

    Same here. The workaround is in the Print Dialog, Printer Settings> Change Settings> Advanced Settings. This will take you to the printer driver settings and you can usually specify number of copies there somewhere (following is from my Canon printer driver).

  • I want to take an image that's from my files, no cropped and be able to set up action(s) where I can drop that image behind an 8x10 frame overlay, then the same with a 5x7 frame overlay, then the same image behind a memory mate overlay that's an 8x10 size

    So is there a way to do this using the images right from the camera, where I don't have to crop three different sized images and drag them into the overlays?  I can set up an action for each, but cropping the same image 3x is a pain in the ***..!

    There are.  I did not write you need to learn scripting and write your own scripts.  As I wrote most Photoshop will never write a script.  However I would write every Photoshop user will at times use a Photoshop script to do some automated process for them. 
    I wrote the it would be very hard to do what you want to do would a straight Photoshop action.  Actions on their own can not use logic.  An action would need to to it by brute force.
    However in Photoshop CC Adobe added conditional action support.  With this support it is now possible to create a group of actions to process some conditions.  Like you can separate Landscape from portraits have an Action for processing  landscape images and an other for processing portrait images.
    Size is still hard to deal with for you can have landscape's the are extremely wide to landscapes that are square and portraits the are extremely narrow to those that are almost square.
    Image the extreme aspect ratio will not fill a 8:10 or 5:7  area it resized to 10 and 7 and creating crops the have 8"10 and 5:7 will have images compositions where most of your image content has been discarded.
    Camera images do not have extreme aspect ratio the usually have  3:2 or 4:3 aspect ratios there are exceptions.  When you have print made the are 5x7 and 8x10 by printers  the prints you receive from the printers are center crops from your image files.
    It is very easy to make center crops if aree images have the same aspect ratio and orientation to begin with.  Now with CC you can have seperate actions to the two orientations.
    A general solution would need handle arbitrary aspect ratios the resulting center crop may well not have a satisfactory image composition for source image with extreme aspect ratios.
    Photoshop ship with several scripts users use all the time to process their image.  You may have used some yourself. Do any of these sound familiar to you. Conditional Mode Change, ContactSheetII, Delete All Empty Layers, Export Layers To Files, ExportColorLookupTables,  Fit Image, Flatten All Layer Effects, Flatten All Masks, generate, Image Processor, Layer Comps To Files, Layer Comps To PDF, Lens Correct, Load DICOM, Load Files into Stack, Merge To HDR, Photomerge, Script Events Manager and Statistics.
    My action package as I wrote contains more the a dozen script I wrote to be used in actions to add logic into the actions.
    It would also be extremely easy to create a Photo Collage Template PSD that contains a background layer that has your two frames the 8x10 and 5x7 and also have two alpha channels to map the locations of the images.  That can be batch populated with my script  BatchPicturePackage.
    Photo Collage Toolkit
    Photoshop scripting is powerful and I believe this package demonstrates this A video showing a 5 image collage PSD template  being populates with images:
    The package includes four simple rules to follow when making Photo Collage Template PSD files so they will be compatible with my Photoshop scripts.
    Size the photo collage templates for the print size you want - width, height and print DPI resolution.
    Photo collage templates must have a Photoshop background layer. The contents of this layer can be anything.
    Photo collage templates must have alpha channels named "Image 1", "Image 2", ... "Image n".
    Photo collage templates layers above the background layers must provide transparent areas to let the images that will be placed below them show through.
    There are twelve scripts in this package they provide the following functions:
    TestCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to test a Photo Collage Template while you are making it with Photoshop.
    CollageTemplateBuilder.jsx - Can build Templates compatible with this toolkit's scripts.
    LayerToAlphaChan.jsx - Used to convert a Prototype Image Layer stack into a template document.
    InteractivePopulateCollage.jsx - Used to interactively populate Any Photo Collage template. Offers most user control inserting pictures and text.
    ReplaceCollageImage.jsx - use to replace a populated collage image Smart Object layer with an other image correctly resized and positioned.
    ChangeTextSize.jsx - This script can be used to change Image stamps text size when the size used by the populating did not work well.
    PopulateCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to Automatically populate a Photo Collage template and leave the populated copy open in Photoshop.
    BatchOneImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Collage templates that only have one image inserted. The Collage or Image may be stamped with text.
    BatchMultiImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with images in a source image folder. Easier to use than the interactive script. Saved collages can be tweaked.
    BatchPicturePackage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with an image in a source image folder
    PasteImageRoll.jsx - Paste Images into a document to be print on roll paper.
    PCTpreferences.jsx - Edit This File to Customize Collage Populating scripts default setting and add your own Layer styles.

    HI Martin,
    i am not realy sure what you want!?!?
    i think you want to display only a part of the values you read from XYZ
    so what you can do:
    write all the values in an array.
    the size of the array is the max. value of the slide bar
    now you can select a part of the array (e.g. values from 100 to 200) and display this with a graph
    the other option is to use the history function of the graphes
