I have been having odd and off color prints lately for about the last 3 or 4 weeks. Not a clue why.

I'm currently using PS CS2, prints set to photoshop manages color, perceptual, sRGB.

I decided to try a websters pages download today and it printed it out very nicely, but my photos, look dreadful. A dull greyish cast over them. Anyone have any idea what is happening? Its so frustrating.

Thanks so much

Check to see what color space your camera is shooting in. Editing/printing in sRGB but shooting in RGB can cause issues. Or being set up the other way. You need all devices from camera, monitor, printer using the same color space.

Often times digital images have a haze. You can find defog actions to get rid of it, or you just bump the contrast a little bit.
I have a great printer and home, but I also know that I have to lighten my photos a bit to get them to print bright enough on my printer....
