I've recently upgraded my computer and now run Vista (I know:shock and have a LCD screen My Epson printers which printed beautifully out of the box on my old computer now print so bad I could cry. I've been doing some research and some sites suggest to - because of the LCD - maybe change my camera settings to Adobe sRGB and my Photoshop settings to Adobe 1998?

Has anyone else had this problem or heard of it? HELP!

Computer is a HP Touchsmart PC
Printers are Epson CX3800 and R1800

Thanks.
Kelly

Invest a few dollars and watch this tutorial. It teaches you everything you need to know about digital printing.

Vista is not the problem per se. You just got lucky last time that you were getting good results.

Thank you everyone!

Steve, I do believe I'll try the free first. :-)

I'm not quite sure what happened from the time of my original post but both of my printers did start printing - better.

Hopefully, this tutorial will get them back to where I was thrilled with the prints.

Thanks again!
Kelly

The free stuff is fine, but after half an hour of looking around the site I would estimate that it has about 1% of the content in the video.

You get what you pay for. :-)
