Photography Question 
Denise MacDonald
 

why are my prints blue!


I shoot with a Nikon D70, use photoshop cs to edit, then burn a cd with my prints. I take cd to Walgreens and 1/2 of the prints have a real deep blue tint! The images look fine on my monitor, I can print them out fine, they look fine on Walgreens monitor, but come out BLUE! What is causing this!??Please help!

  Denise,

I've had similar issues with Costco. My prints were not blue but it was overexposed, underexposed, or the color was off. My prints looked fine on my monitor and it also looked fine when printed at home. I use the Costco printer profiles to edit my photos in Photoshop CS so my photos should look fine when printed.

I was told that their printers have an automatic color correction and the workers need to turn it off prior to printing. Try telling Walgreens, No Color Correction for your photos and write it down on your order. The automatic color corrections might be screwing up the prints.

Hope that helps,
Steve

  Denise,

Not sure if you need it or not but here's the site for the Costco profiles if you need it. I think they have profiles for Walgreens too. www.drycreekphoto.com. I saw your other post, I think it might be a problem with Walgreens.
