I'd like to prepare photos for printing at costco. I've set my preferences to print to file, 4X6, 320 ppi and this works great - I get nice 1280X1920 output files. However, when I use one of the drycreek printer profiles for my costco, everything looks good until I save the file and open it up elsewhere and the colors are so far off that I can't imagine that the store's printer is so far off. I've used this profile before and the difference was subtle - now greens are bright fluorescent. When I look at the queue, if printer ICC is enabled, it shows the name of the printer ICC (after the file name in the queue) and also says Adobe RGB. My monitor and camera colorspace is sRGB. Any ideas?

I think I figured it out - the colors that turn neon show up as being out of gamut in photoshop... so I guess the ICC profile can't handle those. They printed well without the profile, and most of the other photos printed well with the profile..
