Color help (sRGB)


Recommended Posts

All my photographers shoot sRGB, when I print I set the machine to use the embedded profile ( which is sRGB) ( makes no difference if I use the embedded profile or the sRGB tab prints come out identical)

My reds come out orange and my blues come out closer to purple.  Any help appreciated......

Here is what I have learned regarding color space and the DKS. I will quote a tech

"Telling the DKS to use the sRGB profile does not convert the colorspace. A DKS is SDP, never anything else. Calling a pig a cow does not get you roast beef...."

So the SDP translates to sRGB the best it can which is not very good for certain colors

It sounds to me more like a setup densitometer problem, causing a colour shift. Check the densitometer, they don't last forever.

If it is a problem with the machine profile, you will not be the only person that has met this and I would suggest there will be a fix for this somewhere.

As I am not American, I refuse to use the incorrect spelling 'color' as prompted by the spell checker.
