Hi there, I have just printed 18 photo's. On inspection they are very different to the onscreens shown in Qimage thumbs viewing panel. Some have a green cast and some facial highlights are blown out. I re-installed v2020.123 and when re-printed the prints are the same as when first printed.
Any one got any ideas?

Obviously wrong settings in the driver or ink nozzles clogged.
So info.
1) images from your camera?
2) Raw or jpg?
3) What printer?
What paper?
What ink?
What colorspace and what printer profile?

Let's tackle that first.

Hi Fred A, Many thanks for your prompt response, details following:
Camera RAW converted to TIFF in Qimage. Printer Epson Photo 1500W, Epson Premium Glossy Paper, Epson inks, SRGB, profile by Pure Profiles [a UK company]. Your suggestion concerning colour space was correct. I had set the paper to Epson Ultra Glossy instead of Premium Glossy. Many thanks, stay safe.
