Have any idea when they will have updates for boxed non-subscription version?

I downloaded Adobe file to, Try printing out this color reference image:

http://www.digitaldog.net/files/2014PrinterTestFileFlat.tif.zip

Colors are off some going through LR. I printed the same file without going through LR and the color is about as good as I have seen. Reds, greens, blues are just more vivid.

Thanks,

Larry

This is fixed in Lightroom 6.6.1 also as it is the same program as Lightroom CC with some things disabled.

Anyone having this issue again with Lightroom 2015.7?

I had this issue with 2015.6 as everyone did above, then it was fixed with 2015.6.1 and now seems broken again.

Am I the only one?

Cheers,

Andy

You're not alone.

I had actually switched to do all of my printing from Photoshop after having issues with Lightroom printing colour/brightness inaccurately. But now that Photoshop shuts down every time I try to print (thanks to the Sierra OS update) I'm forced to return to printing from Lightroom and it is horrendous! Everything I print has a very noticeable blue tone to it. That's printing straight to the Canon printer.

If I print to jpg and then print from my mac it's fine.

Please tell me there is an update coming to fix this. I'm not holding my breath on the Photoshop issue being resolved anytime soon.

The printing issue about which this thread was based was fixed in CC2015.7/6.7

If you are still having issues, go to Help>System Info… and verify you are running the .7 release

Then, make certain you are using the latest print driver from  your print manufacturer.

I have the exact same problem but with InDesign CC 2017 and a Konica Minolta printer.

Since the latest update a month or so ago all prints (from all Adobe CC programs) have been dark and with exaggerated colors. I have callibrated the printer and tested from other programs, but it seems like some kind of CM is missing since the update. 😞

It is quite a pain to color correct pictures in Photoshop when the print is so off.

This issue is still very much part of Lightroom. It has NOTHING to do with color calibrated monitors and has everything to do with how Lightroom imports the files and adds color profiles. Canon RAW files seems to have more of an issue with this than other brand cameras. I have tried everything from converting from AdobeRGB to sRGB, 8bit, 16bit, different file types and nothing works. Printing a JPG file straight from the camera works fine - import to Lightroom and export, and immidiately the colors are washed out and contrasts messed up.

 

The only workaround.... Instead of exporting from Lightroom the normal way, use the Print module and print to file. This "strips" the file of whatever rubbish Lightroom adds to the exported file and the image prints and displays correctly.

 

Adobe messed up seriously here along the lines with its updates and will never admit it! Doing huge events I always print on site and have used Lightroom for a very long time. I am doing nothing different and suddenly for the past 2 years I have to change my workflow because of this issue. Something that used to work, doesn't work anymore.

@hhelmbold, you are posting in a thread that is several years old. If you are still using Lightroom version 6 you need be aware the latest update was released in Dec 2017 and there will be no further updates. So the reality is that there will be no further bug fixes for Lightroom 6.

If you are now using a upgraded version you should create a new thread in the forum and document the specific issue you are faced with in your printing process.

I know it's an old thread but maybe it also shows how this has never been
fixed if it's still a problem in the latest version

Fixed long ago (6 years) - No posts in this thread since.

 

If you have a problem with the current version of Lightroom Classic (11.3) printing I recommend you start a new thread and provide more complete information so that someone can guide you through a color-managed workflow.

 

If you are using an older version of Lightroom Classic, I recommend you update to the current version and see if you still have the problem. 

 

In any case, resurrecting this ancient and fixed thread will not accomplish your goal. 

 

I am closing this thread.
