[FONT=&quot]I’m running Windows 7 64Bit running Adobe CS5 Master Collection. But ever since I allowed CS5 Photoshop to control my printer (HP Photosmart Prem 310-C) to do a test print of a graphic that I created all of my Blues print a violet/blue color, no matter what color blue. It has even affected MS Word & MS Project when I try to print blue colored font or Gantt Chart blues will no longer print blue, but will print the same blue/violet color. I’ve even tried a brilliant blue which will all view great, but prints the same shade of violet blue! All my colors and Blues will view great! I've calibrated my monitor and I’ve reset my printer several times and still the same thing! [/FONT][FONT=&quot]I never had this problem before I downloaded Adobe CS5! A strange thing is that I can run check printer test and the data & image that is stored in the printer will print blues perfect, including running a copy direct from the scanner bed and it will produce perfect blues. I almost feel as though Adobe CS5 has possessed my PC and printer, how do I get it back to printing like it did before installing CS5 Master Suite? Thanks to all who can help in this matter! :banghead:

Not specialist in that but check in printing preferences Colormanagment, who is controling colors - printer or photoshop. I prefer No Colormanagment,

Thanks SeniorS but I too have already tried the setting "No Colormanagement" with no results. It still remains in the same (what ever mysterious setting that may be)! This problem still baffles ones mind as every possible color spectrum displays so perfectly well!!!) But yet when it comes time to print, every possible Blue Color will print different variations of the same Violet/Blue color! I've even tried an experiment where I made up several 1/2" X 1" boxes filled with different blue colors from brilliant blue to the darkest and lightest shades of blue, but it will only print the same violet/blue from dark to light, but still the same violet/blue color and it doesn't matter what shade or variation.
