Thanks for your help.  I think I have solved the problem.  I found the place on the Qimage interface to get to my paper profiles which all seem to be there.

So I am still curious, as to where, spool/driver/color is but it is no longer "life" threatening.

Yes this is a two part question.  The first problem is that I cannot get to System 32 but I don't have anything called spool.   I have
spoolss.dll and spoolsv.  Any advice on how I can get to spool\drivers\color? 

If I can get there I can check to see what profiles are in there.  If I don't have what I need I might have to request you send me the zip file.

The second part of the question was in relationship to the Qimage Interface.  How would I select the paper profile to use?

Thank you for your help and patience.

Am running a new Windows 7 computer.  Downloaded qimage v.2007.172, because I was a registered user in the past.  Also running Epson 4900.

I don't know how to get to the paper profiles in Qimage. Used to be a box that you would push to change the paper profile.

Also, would my paper profiles be in Qimage.  If not, how do I get them there and where would I find them on my computer.

Thanks for your help

I have run several nozzle checks, I have changed the cartridge and ran additional nozzle checks.  I still get a greyed yellow using Qimage.

I am using Espson Inks only.

If my Photoshop profile is Adobe 1998, should my monitor profile in Qimage be sRGB?

Thank you.

Yes, I have the ICM marked and no color management.  No, I don't print for other folks.

You see original on that screen shot only beacuse the last image was the original size.  Often I size in Photoshop, save and open from Qimage. Othr times I size in Qimage. The profile in Photoshop is Adobe 1998.

I have always used the SRGB color profile in Qimage but I changed it just the other day to Adobe 1998 because I was trying to figure out what was wrongand thought that might be the problem. Per your suggestion I have changed it back to sRGB.

For me, the most interesting thing is that the only color with the problem is the yellows.  There must be a way in Qimage to counterbalance the greyed yellows.  I am not sure  know how to manage the colors in Qimage other than the Saturation Box.  Even then it is hard to tell how much saturation is being applied as I can see it on the screen but not on the printed image.  Is it just a game of playing with that saturation setting until the image prints correctly.  I think once I find out what to do I can apply it to all the images.

Of course, I am guessing here.

Thanks for your time and patience.

Sorry you thought I was discourteous last time.  I am pretty much a novice in the printing arena and the tech specs you ask for.

No my monitor is not calibrated and I have no idea what my monitor profile is. I guess that pretty much puts the squash on this whole idea that there is a simple way to saturate the color thru Qimage.   I will tell you that I am using an Epson R1800 printer which I have had for many years and it still prints well.  The reason I have not calibrated my monitor is that for all these years, using Qimage, Photoshop, Publisher or whatever, the color on my prints have been extremely close to what I am seeing on the screen, and I have been satisfied. (If it ain't broke, don't fix it).  Being a non-tech user I did not want to have to get into the calibration and profiles of all that is necessary if I was happy. In the last several months printing in Qimage I find that the yellows are gray.  It is the only color I am having a problem with.

I am using Qimage 2010.209 and I do not use a Printer profile, but I do use Paper Profiles.  I use various papers, mostly Epson. Epson Exhibition Fiber, Epson Hot Press,on rare occasions I use Epson Matte and rarer still Epson Glossy.

The Epson R1800 print dialog box is pretty basic, allowing me to pick the paper size, a short list of Epson Papers which I have to pick the closest and the option to NOT use the printer for color management. I pick the true paper profile from Qimage.

I have changed the yellow ink cartridge and run several Head Cleanings and Alignments. There seems to be no issue with the yellow head.

When I say I have used the printer for other programs, I recently did a color brochure in Microsoft Publisher and the colors were terrific.

Looks like I am not running a fully managed color process.

I have attached the properties page from Qimage.

Thanks for your time.

Printing in Qimage the yellows are very grey.  I have saturated further in Photoshop but it doesn't seem to do much good. I have tried increasing the yellow saturation in the adjust tab up to 50 and although it seems a tad better on the screen it doesn't print yellower. 

I am using PS CS5 with an Adobe 1998 color profile.

Is there another adjustment I can make in Qimage to saturate the yellows more.

It is not the yellow in the printer.  I have changed the cartridge, there is no blockage and when printing from other programs the yellow prints fine.

Are there any other adjustments I can make in Qimage to saturate a particluar color?

Thanks for any advice.

9  Mike's Software / Qimage / Warm colors have changed on: January 31, 2011, 03:10:47 AM
I have been using Qimage for at least 5 years.  Always, what I see on the Qimage screen is what I get with the print.  Just today, what I see on the Qimage Screen  is not what I am getting with the print.  The warm colors seem to have desatured quite a bit.

I am unsure what this is about.

Any advice would be appreciated.
