super! Thanks. Has anyone tried the flickr printing? Do they use ICC profile to fix color shift?

Thanks for the invite Marc. I have noticed a big problem with some paper that I use from Office Depot. It has a high gloss finish, and even when I set up my printer profile correctly it prints way too light, and there is a lack of saturation. I can usually do a levels adjustment to fix the problem, but I'm wondering if it is a calibration issue, or simply the profile that my printer has for that particular type of paper.

Mark (R80o) - I am glad your here...hopefully the group floursihes but if it doesn't we can at least share some ideas.

Kim (kimberkit) I posted to this on your other thread...I too wonder if they use an ICC workflow....Costco does and it works pretty well.

Dave (cyprest) - another person I am thrilled joined. Hopefully you will get a lot out of this group. Yes, I too wonder what paper you are using. I am sure you are following the setting instructions that came with the printer...the reality is sometimes you need a custom profile for your inkset on your particular batch of paper.

Kir (Kieran 88) Glad to have you. Welcome.

David (Pondage) Hey it's super great to have you here...thanks and I hope I have info that will be of use to you. So you have the business inkjet 2200 which is discontinued but was a pretty damn good printer in it's day. Do you use hp paper?

Hey all keep the dialog going!
