Fuji Frontier Auto Correct Nightmare

    I just had an interesting revelation in a lab. The operator let me have a
    look at the edit software that queues the files ready to print, it also has
    an auto correct function. While I was looking at my already corrected in
    Lightroom files going through I noticed that it was auto correcting them and
    doing a mighty bad job, blown highlights, blocked shadows, colour changes,
    nightmare. I asked the tech what was going on and he said that in his
    experience that the files that were from Lightroom, Canon DPP, or anything
    other than Photoshop, they were auto corrected and IT CAN"T BE TURNED OFF,
    EVEN WHEN IT WAS UN-TICKED IN THE PREFERENCES. As I was getting 200 9x6 inch
    prints and it was 2/3rds of the way through I asked him to stop. Then we
    experimented and it appears that Photoshop saves the file with an icon and
    the others don't, we couldn't see any other obvious differences so the
    Frontier printer must make adjustment to files without an icon. Bizarre but
    true. I am going to go to a lab with a Noritsu printer and I'll take two
    identical files, one saved in Photoshop and the other from Lightroom and see
    if it does the same thing. You have been warned. If any one has any other
    explanation I would be glad to hear from you.

    My punt is that the guy was using the
    icon to make the print, instead of the real image.

    I don't think so, it was 9x6 inches @ 240dpi

    You should see how much they can
    improve a 1200dpi scan....
