Lightroom Printing Issue

  • Question
  • Updated 5 years ago
When printing photos using Lightroom they look "washed-out", compared to printing the same photos using other printing programs such as Microsoft Picture It! The Lightroom photos have a dull look, with little contrast. Skin tones look awful. I can edit the color of course, but even that doesn't really fix the problem.

Are you letting the Printer manage colors? Lightroom manage colors? Both? Neither? Is your monitor calibrated? Are you using the proper profile for your printer and paper combination?
