WE are company from Kazakhstan, using printer HPlatex 360 and FlexiPrint RIP. Our problem is when we send tasks to print in TIFF or JPG colors change. In RIP color completely diffrent than in image view on the computer screen.
I've moved you post to this board because it makes more sense to be in here instead of inside "show us your Latex projects".
I'll like to ask you some questions before doing any guessing:
1- Are you experiencing this color variation just with TIF and JPG files or you experience this variation with other image files?
2- Do you have color consistency between different prints or are you also experimenting color differences between prints?
3- which firmware version are you using?
4- Which version of the RIP (FlexiPrint) are you using?
5- Have you checked your monitor? If you are having this color variation with all your prints maybe is that your pc's monitor is not working properly.
1 If we print directly from ColorDraw or Photoshop there no any color variation. ut if we export images to TIFF, JPEG or PDF colors change completely in print priview and on printed material also
2 This problem we have only with HP latex, other printers are ok
3 We use last version of firmware
4 FlexiPrint version 11 sp6
5 We checked our monitors as well
Thanks for your attention to our problem
Sorry for the time it took me to reply to you, but I had to discuss your case with some of Color Experts since they could do a better guess on you issue. They basically think that you issue could be due two main reasons, how the files are exported or due to how are the settings for the windows driver set. This are their recommendations:
In the editor (I assume you use HP Premium Edition), FlexiPRINT do not emulate printing colours by default (as Photoshop will do). You need to choose menu "View", Menu Entry "Softproof" to let Flexi simulate printing colors. Be shure to set the correct printer and output-profile too in the menu "edit - colour settings ...".
When importing JPG or TIF directly to the production manager, be shure to embed the current workspace profile (or select it in the FlexiPRINT-Menus) used in Photoshop, CorelDraw or Illustrator.
