I’m trying to implement Jeff Schewe's process of using Lightroom to print Photoshop PSDs, but the same file printed from the two apps doesn’t look the same.

In the attached photo, the left image was printed from Photoshop, and the right from Lightroom. The Lightroom version is slightly darker, but the big difference is Lightroom's loss of shadow detail in the blue swim trunks at bottom, and especially the increase in their blue saturation.

Using an iMac, profiled with i1 Profiler, and an Epson 3880. All of Lightroom's develop settings are zeroed, and Print Adjustment is unchecked.

Both LR and PS are printing with the same standard Epson Premium Luster profile. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Russell

Could it be the difference between Lightroom's Melissa RGB and whatever policies you've selected in Photoshop?

Paul put me on the right track. I found the LR print profile was set for Epson Enhancedd Matte, instead of the Premium Luster I was using. Both profile names start with "Epson Stylus Pro 3880..." so you can’t see which unless you click the pop-up menu. Thanks to you, Paul, and John for your suggestions!
