RGB Color Print Problem

greenspun.com : LUSENET : PosterShop Talk : One Thread

I am working in Bureau Service offering large format printing service. I am having a problem of Printing a RGB file through PosterShop 3.5. When the file is printed from Photoshop 5.0, the colors are accurate as displayed on the monitor, but when I try to print the same image from Postershop 3.5, the image colors on screen as well as the printed colors are totally different.

The Printer I am using is HP DesignJet 3500CP.

Please advise how to overcome this problem. Any help will be very much appreciated.

Try converting your images to CMYK in Photoshop, instead of letting Postershop do the conversion during ripping. I used to get much better results that way with Postershop 3.5. Experiment with the rgb to cmyk conversion process in Photoshop as well. Postershop Version 4 works far better with RGB images. I rarely do cmyk conversions anymore because version 4 handles rgb input so much better

Why can't you allow the user to RIP files without a mandatory conversion to CMYK? We need to produce TIFF files in RGB only. Postershop is a total waste here for that reason alone.
