  • 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
