    I am trying to change the color of an open PSD file in CS4. After
    printing I wasn't quite satisfied with the results and wanted to add a
    little blue. I made the adjustment but the print is the same. Nothing I
    do will change the print. I even went as far as turning off color
    management but it still does the same thing. I can not change the color.
    What am I missing?

    It's possible that you

    - Missing the monitor calibrating?

    - Good hardware monitor calibrattor?

    - Good printer profile?

    I am using a Canon printer. CS4 like CS3 has the option to have the
    printer or CS4 color manage. What I don't understand is if I make a
    change in color (like adding blue to the entire picture) it will not
    show up when I print it. It still looks like the original picture before
    the correction.

    Thanks for the reply Mike.
    When my changes didn't seem to be working I tried various combinations
    as an experiment. I made it very magenta and when I printed it still
    looked like the original. I am opening a PSD file and making the
    correction and it shows up as a new history state. Then I try to print
    but it seems to be printing the first history state which is when I
    opened it. I know this probably doesn't make sense because it is hard to
    explain.

    Yes, I am keeping the file open and printing within Photoshop. I usually
    do a smaller test print and then do fine tweaks for the final print.

    That's my guess. He's printing an open file with the original layer
    active.
