I have an Epson Stylus Photo 870 printer, and whatever application I print from, photos come out with too much red in the skin tones. Has anyone else had this problem and managed to overcome it without too much of a colour-shift in the printouts?

Have you checked the ink levels yet? My HP printer prints blue when the ink levels are low.

Howdy:

I use Paint Shop Pro for my graphics editing and found that, if I change the lighting option to the equivalent of florescent (sp), it seems to make a big difference in collor.. (ie, make it a little cooler)..

Thanks all for your advice and the links (I knew them all already except for the PS one). Ink levels all OK - and I do a nozzle check every day to make sure all colours are getting through. Since posting I've gotten hold of an Epson profile plus some manual printer colour settings from a website. The profile works a treat from Photoshop. Thanks all.
