Hello. I get great results when I print from photoshop cs or photoshop cs2. When I print using Qimage my prints are WAY off. By the way, I'm a graphic artist, I always print renderd images from Illustrator, so all my stuff is CMYK and I always inbed US sheetfed Coated v.2 to all my files.

Here are the settings I use on PS cs:
Source Space:
-U.S. Sheetfed Coated v.2
Print Space
-Working RGB IEC61966-2.1
-Use balck point compensation

On PS cs2 your choices are different, but the results are the same. The settings are:
-document (U.S. Sheetfed Coated v.2)
-Color Handling - Let Photoshop Determine Colors
-Printer Profile: sRGB IEC61966-2.1
-Use balck point compensation

I have tried all kinds of settings on Qimage and I'm unable to get any where near the same results. I have tried turning all color management off. Any suggestions?

I guess my first question would have to be: why are you using sRGB as your printer profile as it was not intended for printers. What printer are you using and what paper? You should be able to find a printer profile suitable for the paper you are using.
