I have a Pro-10 printer and have printed sports photos, auto racing, cityscapes, etc and have ZERO problems when printing. The colors that I develop to on the screen in Lightroom or in DPP print exactly as I see them. Even a cheer competition that I took photos of a month back seemed to print out fine. But photos I took yesterday and developed show a heavy red tint when I do a print preview. It is as if the girls have the worst sunburn imaginable. I haven't changed a thing and do the same adjustments as always. At first I thought maybe Lightroom was fubar so I opened the files un in DPP and the same thing happened. Converted and output to JPEG and went to print with the exact same results.

Also, her glasses are a teal color and appear teal when developing, and looking at the photos I've converted and am viewing on my cell phone, yet in the print preview they turn green. So somehow everything is getting a red saturation added. If I try to remove the red saturation in the develop module the photo goes to hell and all the colors go off in the print preview, except for the "sunburn"!!

What am I missing or what can I do to change the red skin color back to a more neutral flesh color?

Have you run a nozzle check to make sure you haven't developed a clogged nozzle in the print head??

The problem is not with the prints as it is printing EXACTLY how it is showing on the computer screen.

So what is happening, I am editing in LR and in this case even DPP4. I get everything perfect on screen but when I click print and the print preview pops up, suddenly there is a ton of red/magenta added. I'm not even getting to the point where I print. (I did print just to test and it prints exactly how the preview showed.) This only seems to be a problem with skin colors as every other photo I've taken has the prints looking exactly how they look when I edit and then print. It is usually what you see is what you get but not in this case and I'm super frustrated.

My bad! I didn't completely comprehend what you were saying.

What computer system are you using to process your photos?

The reason I was asking about computer is that I have a Dell XPS 15 laptop with a 4K screen that I got this past year. There was a program on called Dell Premier Color that was screwing up the saturation in different views in Lightroom and it was overriding my custom monitor profiles. I would do a custom monitor callibration, make a profile, and make it the default. But everytime I restarted the laptop, the Dell Premier Color profile would revert back to the default profile and I would start having the saturation changes in the different views in Lightroom.

I finally disabled the Dell program and eventually deleted it and have never had those problems since then.

Probably not your problem but such things can happen.

No, this is a custom built PC. (not from Dell, HP, etc)

Tonight i will probably re-edit the photos from scratch and send them to Costco for printing to see how they come out. If perfect then I will know that they are printing how they appear on my monitor and that somehow the printer color profiles need to be adjusted. (no idea how)
