I love my HP z3100 printer, but I am still frustrated with prints coming out too dark. The problem seems worse with Photoshop CS4.
I have loaded the latest drivers and firmware from HP - Windows XP still (waiting for windows 7)
I manage my monitor calibration with eye one display 2.
I use the very easy printer calibration in HP z3100 for different papers.
I use setttings - let photoshop manage color in both photoshop and in the driver options (in windows under printer properties)
I know the brightness on LCD's is much greater than printers - but I am frustrated with getting "what you see is what you get" on the printer.
Has anyone figured out an easy fix. Currently I just keep adjusting brightness and keep re-printing until it looks right, but I wonder if anyone has an easier method that does not waste as much paper - I mostly use HP Professional satin.
Is there a standard tweak or modification in Photoshop that can be made that makes the lcd image match the print?
Has anyone found a RIP solution that works better for HP z3100?
I was hoping the colorbyte http://www.colorbytesoftware.com/IP_prod_sheet.htm
would come out with one but everytime I check - I see that they have not got a product out.
Apologies if this has already been discussed - I could not find it in the search
