    When I take my PS7 edited photos to be printed on a Fuji Frontier 370 they
    are much darker than they look at home. I have color profiled all my
    equipment at home so I don't see that color managment on my end it the
    problem.

    Any experience with this?

    Thanks

    Are you *Converting* to sRGB before sending files off to the Frontier (a
    sRGB only device)?

    *Assigning* a profile does no good as the Frontier cannot read the profile.

    This will happen if you edit them on a Macintosh.

    Try converting to sRGB first, as Tom suggests, in any case.

    Hello All,
    I get my photos printed on the Fuji Frontier System.
    My printer informed me that all images need to be saved at least once as a
    ..bmp file - to stip all info and data writen to the file by the camera.
    Quote: "To avoid auto level machine correction and centre cropping, files
    must
    have first been converted to, or processed in BMP prior to converting back
    to
    TIFF or JPEG for printing".
    They inform you of this in writing - because they charge you extra for
    colour (Australian way of spelling of color) correction.
    Not sure if this will help - but I think it may have some relevance to your
    problem
    if the other repsonses aren't helping.
    Regards,

    Yup, I have the same problem and attribute it to the matte finish. Not sure
    I'd say it's "much darker" but definitely darker. I simply make them a
    little lighter when i send them to Wal-Mart.

    What color space are you using in the camera and in PS?

    If you've used a good profiling system at home (hardware/software)
    combination and you are positive of your profile try another place for your
    images. Maybe find a place that has a Noritsu, (Costco).

    If the problem still exists with different labs, then you have a problem
    with the profiling system you used on your computer.

    I didn't realize they were set to a 1.8 gamma. Interesting, and good to
    know. I've always just used their profile so that hasn't come up as an
    issue for me.

    Uhh, never mind that post. It's too late and my wires are crossed.

    Over 1500 Frontier profiles are provided at:

    After locating the processor you intend to use, run the profile on
    your prints and instruct Costco (or whoever) to keep hands off the
    adjustments!
