For some reason everything I print has no midtone to it. It started a few days ago and I can't figure out the problem. If I boost the midtones to the point that they print correctly, the highlights are blown out. Any ideas what could be causing this problem?

I'm using a CS2 to edit and printing to an epson RX500. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

My suggestion is to run your utility program to check the nozzles. If there is a problem, you run the clean utility. If that fails or is not the problem, replace the offending cartridge(s) and should be back in business.

If this does not fix it, you have to contact Epson.

Good luck,

Jim

Just something to check....
1) Is your printer or PS managing the color for your printing? I have heard that if both are managing it is bad.

2) Is your color space the same for printing as viewing

I'd try this both ways and see if one is better than the other.

From PS 7 help
Using color management when printing (Search for this in help)

To color-manage a document while printing:

Choose File > Print with Preview.
Select Show More Options and choose Color Management from the pop-up menu.
Select an option for Source Space:
Select Document to reproduce document colors as interpreted by the profile currently assigned to the document.
Select Proof to reproduce document colors as interpreted by the current proof profile. This option is useful for generating hard proofs of your soft-proof settings. (See Soft-proofing colors.)
Under Print Space, choose an option for Profile:
Choose the profile that matches the color space of your printer to print using that printer space.
Choose Same As Source to print using the source space profile. No additional conversions will be performed on the colors of the document when it is printed.
Choose PostScript Color Management to send the document's color data, along with the source space profile, directly to a PostScript Level 2 or higher printer (Level 3 or higher for CMYK images) and have colors managed at the level of the printer. The exact results of the color conversion can vary among printers. Choose this option only if you are printing remotely, if you are printing an RGB EPS file, or if you do not have a profile of the printer's color space. To proof a CMYK image on a PostScript Level 2 printer, choose the Lab Color option.
Under Print Space, for Intent, choose a rendering intent to use when converting colors to the destination profile space. (See Specifying a rendering intent.)

Good luck!
