I tried to print from the CS6Beta . I compared it to printing with LR4. The print from CS6 had very washed out colors with a greenish tint.. Other than the print problems the new features are fantastic. Any suggestions on print corrections, or perhaps it just hasn't been fully tweaked yet????

Have you retried printing in the full release yet?

What sort of color management settings are you using in Photoshop and your printer?

Thanks for getting back to me. I am using custom ICC from a ColorMunki calibration of monitor and printer. It worked very well with CS5. I have not printed yet with the full version(just installed it from the disc). I didn't think I should need to re-calibrate, what do you think? I will print in the next few days and if it is still off, I will calibrate. I will let you know. Should I reply to your site or update my question on the adobe site?

I don't see a reason that re-calibration would be necessary, but if it is still off that is probably a good place to start.

Go ahead and reply here once you've tested.

Hi again, I did print and the color cast is no longer there with the full version installed from the disc. I did however note that the print is slightly darker than on screen. I have noticed this with all previous versions as well. I have a work around which was suggested by Scott Kelby which is to copy the layer and use "Screen" and set to 21% in opacity. It works ok. I love the print correction in LR 4 which takes care of this problem. Any chance that this can be added in updates to CS6??????

are you soft proofing in CS6? this is the only way to get great prints everytime. even with calibrated monitors and custom print profiles you need to preview the image in the proof color. i open the image then make a duplicate and turn on proof colors which will be my print profile. then i usually have to add contrast and some saturation to get the proof color to match the original rgb version. then i get exact match prints.

I did not change the workspace. I am using the photography workspace as my default and have not changed any of the settings.

i think the "new" dark UI will lead people to have prints that are not accurate unless they soft proof. the really dark panels in the default workspace are not ideal for printing - for video yes but not for still images.

Yes, you want one of the lighter 2 UI color sets when judging prints.
The darker 2 are for video and film users.

This sounds like my problem, too. CS4 + Epson R2880 + calibtrated monitor and paper profiles: great. Exactly the same but with CS6: muddy green dull prints!
