• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

Print preview image colors are way off even though my prints match my images perfectly

I now am using Windows 10 and have an Epson P600 printer. I have been using a PC and various Epson printers for many years and have always had the following problem where I am in the Print Module and my image looks exactly the same as it does in the Develop Module. I always check off the Print Preview option in my printer settings. As expected, when I select the Print button, a Print Review comes up before the printing begins, which requires selecting Print button again in order for the printer to actually start its task. The issue is that the print preview image colors are way off and excessively reddish. However, the actual print comes out properly. So, the print preview has always been useless as far as the colors are concerned. I use it to just check the format of my photos. By the way, my monitor is a wide gamut one and I keep it properly calibrated. I have always used Epson papers and Epson inks. Attached are snapshots of a Print Preview image (reddish one) and the Print Module image which is also what my print looked like. What's the cause of my problem???

Thanks for looking!

Same on my (modest) Canon printer. I've stopped worrying about it!

What ICC paper profile are you using to view the image, does the same thing happen when you use soft proofing in the develop module?

in my case, I am using a custom profile from the paper manufacturer, and everything except that print preview is fine

I had all sorts of problems with my Epson 1400 after I upgraded from LR 6 to LR Classic CC. I ended up having to the printer manage the colours. Tried to get help from both Adobe and Epson who ended up pointing fingers at each other.

I didn't have any real problems when I went to CC Paul, so I don't know what went wrong for you. The thing is that the soft proof function in Lightroom should show a reasonable approximation of the print but the Epson print preview is not in any way colour managed. I think it's just intended to show you that that you have selected the right size of paper.

Same with my two Canon Printers. LR is fine and printed results are fine but the printer preview s are way off. Just ignore it.
