    Hi All.

    When printing from SL, using my epsom inkjet(600). The colours are not printing out true.

    For example geen(19) is printing out blue????? I know you don`t always get whet you see, but they`ve always been a close shade.

    I have been messing, so what have I done??
    This`II teach me to leave things well alone.

    Please help.
    Becky. 😀

    Hi Becky,
    Can’t be sure what you’ve done, but when you print, go to Preferences and change the “Anti Aliasing” from None to either Fine, Medium or Coarse. The range of colours generated improves up to fine. There is a time penalty attached to this though as the fine will take longer to generate the print than none.

    Becky I dont use SL at all so I’m not sure what you have done or how to correct it but the most likely cause is that you are using CMYK on screen and printing in RGB. The two are not compatible at all, when you print a CMYK dockument on an RGB printer the colours will come out completely different to those viewed on the screen.

    It just goes to show – never overlook the simple explanation before looking for a complicated solution. Mind you – I think we all do things like this from time to time 😆 😆 😆

    Becky, try checking all the print cartridge nozzles as the yellow one might be blocked.!!
