Color shift in print

Recommended Posts

Fine patterns in this blue shirt cause some shift in color. When printed the lighter sections of this arm turn purple.

How can you predict and avoid this?

Read it. That is the 100% print file cut. Do you consider that visible? I mean, those patterns make me dizzy but it looks like the shirt pattern to me.

Oh, right!  Ok, in that case, may I see the 100% crop from the same area from your master PSD file?

8*10. Inkjet 

The area shown was about 2"

Oh.  Inkjet.  That explains a great deal.  I'd be fascinated to know if the same problem occurred with a photographic print.

If you intend to attempt the inkjet print again, you'll need to try the smart-object-surface-blur method I outlined in the article.

It's a 12 ink print from my lab on art paper. Because of the paper I can't choose another method. 

 

How blurry should it look to be blurry enough? Because I don't see the issue on screen it is frustrating

Spoke to one guy and we checked the colour profile and resolution. He said that it's just a limitation of the printer but he will ask the tech to see if something we can do.

 

He did not have any answers
