I have gradients as backgrounds in Photoshop and need to send the printer illustrator files. I converted them using standard saving techniques and they look right on screen. However, when I did a test print of this, it came out as a block colour instead. Can anyone help please?

 

Thank you

Apologies for late reply - the notification went into junk. Please see some answers below

 

Which version, which system?

Latest CC versions (Photoshop 21.2.0 & Ai 24.2.1); Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1

Which printer and printer driver?

Epson Expression 760

What kind of file did you save? How did you import that into Illustrator?Originally I saved a .psd then opened in illustrator and saved as .ai file

Do you print directly from Illustrator? Yes. I've been told that it might be because it needs a professional printer. It prints fine from Photoshop on my printer, but, although the screen looks identical in Illustrator, it prints the gradient as a block.

 

Thank you.
