OK, we can put this thead to bed.  Profiled the 3 targets I printed yesterday and all went well.  All 3 papers print just as they are supposed to.  It just works.

Thanks for the help guys.

I'll flush this up as (a) I seem to have a similar problem and (b) we don't know whether the OP solved it. EDIT. Sorry I did not realise there was another page - but I still need to know how.....

I have positive messages when I prepare my profile.

If I do the Edit Profile in PP and both panels look the same.

I am using an Epson and have the same Advanced setting for ICC.

When I print Mike's test card the sweater the girl is wearing seems to be 181 082 061. It is hard to be precise as I do not have a proper colour checker and have had to scan my print in Vuescan and take the readings from there.

Qimage reads the sweater from the file as 200 80 123

I have output the file as a TIF and BreezeBrowser reads the sweater as 197 83 129.

It seems that my problem is similar to that discussed above. My profile, generated by PP, is not being read correctly as it goes from QU to the Epson.

Oddly most of the rest of the test card looks fairly OK but the girl has a distinct yellow cast to her face.

I am using Win 7.

Any suggestions chums?

For those watching this thread and hearing a deafening silence.....I have realised that I was not understanding the Edit facility in PP.

I thought that if the left panel and the right panel were the same I was being told the profile was 'correct'. I have done some reading on Edit and now realise that the objective is to get the right hand panel to match the 'bad' proof print.

That's what to do. How to do it will require a bit more understanding of colour mixing.

So much to learn.....
