I printed this out, from WikiMedia Commons ...



... using PSE6 and my Epson Stylus PHOTO R260. I took it outside, placed it in direct sunlight and took photos of it with a Sony WX150 using Intelligent Auto, Superior Auto, and P, all using AutoWB. I then set a custom WB and used it to take a fourth. They all looked very much alike. They all also look blue in the upper right corner where they're purple on the original.



Anybody else what to try?

Definitely a color shift towards blue. It is quite visible in the paper. Checking with eyedropper tool shows blue cast throughout the gray scale.

I don't, of course, have a way to precisely measure how accurately my printer reproduced the colors in the original image onto the printed page. All I can do is compare that printed page to the original (on my screen) and the photo (also on my screen.) From that comparison, I can say that the printed page actually looks a little less blue. So the fact that the photo looks a little more blue than the original is doubly surprising.
