No bright colors when printing on inkjet
Posted on 1998-09-25
I am using Photoshop 4.0 (at college) and want to print out bright colors on a Canon BJC 4550. Unfortunatly, Photoshop won't accept certain colors, that other programs (freehand etc.) will print out in brilliant colors.
If I mix a color in RGB-mode that contains 100% cyan, 0% yellow, 0% magenta, 0% black, the color that comes out of the printer will not be 100% cyan, but a "greyish" shade of blue (I can even see black and magenta dots on the printout).
This is pretty frustrating, especially after importing the picture in to freehand, the colors get even worse.
Why can't I print the same colors in photoshop, that I can print from freehand?
Is the problem related to the gammut-warning? Is there a possibility to turn of the automatic gammut-warning?
