Help, I am having trouble, something has gone wrong with my PS settings and I dont know what it is.

I am printing contact sheets of RAW Nikon images. When I print them on either my office laser printer or Epson, they get a light brown background over the entire image area, the contacts and the white space between the images.

This has never happened before, and now its happening on ALL the contact prints I am making. Somewhere one of the settings has gone kerpluie and I don't know where. On the monitor before I print, everything looks fine. If I do a print preview on my epson printer, the brown background shows up.

What settings would make this add a light brown background over the entire live print area?

Under view, I have proof settings -CMYK for printing with the laser.

What setting is putting this background on the images? If I go to view proof settings and then put simulate paper white, then it makes the image on the monitor all mushy, but it prints correctly. But that only works for 1 page, not all of them. Every single page needs that done.

I did something yesterday to make it work right, then I opened up PS today and did another set of contacts and the same bad things occurred..so something has changed and I don't know what it is.

HELP PS GURU's. this is driving me nuts.

This is what the bad contact sheets look like, a light brown color over the entire image. Its not the printers, checked them both and they print documents and images from PS just fine. Its 100% a PS setting.

I've never heard of anything like this but there is a print setting for simulate paper color which is in my mind the only way you could make this happen on purpose.

That is very wierd...sounds to me like there is some sort of color profile that is messing things up. You say you can print a regular image fine? I would open a regular image and compare all the profile settings to see if you can fing the culprit.

if it is just a matter of a printer setting that needs to be set as a default, just change the setting from the printer section of the Control Panel (if using XP) and you can make it a default. Settings you change in individual programs do not stick.

actually i went to print a cpl of images and they also have the brown tint on them. looks like a light warming filter..so whatever PS is doing, its putting the filter over everything. Its only on the live area thats printing, because the rest of the sheet of paper is fine when I print a 5X7 on 8X10 paper.

does this help at all?

Try printing an image from another program and see if it also has the brown tone. If so, you'll know its the printer or its driver. If not, then you'll know its Photoshop.

try just after you click the launch photoshop button hit
alt + ctrl + shift + delete all simultaneously,(you must do it just as photoshop starts loading) this will delete the photoshop settings file and give you a clean settings file start.
Sorry I dont know what the mac eqivalent is.
hope this helps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
