I can't print with PS CC 2017 because the print button is greyed out. I am using windows 7 pro and can't find a way to delete their photo viewer which sucks but it's the only thing I can print with. HELP! And THANK YOU in advance : )
Do you own a printer?
Yes, it is an Epson XP-520
What happens when you go to file > print or press ctrl + p?
Nothing. The text is light, not dark like the ones that work
If you go into Windows Control panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers do you have a default printer set?
Yes I do, it is the Epson XP-520
Try changing the Windows default to anything else in the list. Open Photoshop try and print then close Photoshop (whether it works or not) - then change it back to your Epson re-open Photoshop and retry.
If that does not change anything then reset preferences. Go to Preferences -General - Reset Preferences on Quit and after clicking OK restart Photoshop
Hi Dave, Thanks for your time, I really appreciate it. I tried your suggestions and it is still greyed out and won't print!
I'm starting to run out of ideas - but I do have one more:
Can you check your Image mode. To print it needs to be 8 bit or 16 bit. If it is 32 bit then the print option will be greyed
It is in 8 bit mode, and we will never know if it was in 32 bit before I reset the preferences 3 times... : )
This worked for me -- THANK YOU!
This option worked.... I changed from 32 bit to 16 bit... Thank you
I don't know how it happened, but I opened photoshop again and found that the print button was 'highlighted' and thus I was able to print! Thanks again for your time and "Smarts"!
Let's hope it stays that way - if not run through the steps in the thread again
You can not print HDR Images. You need to change in Image/ Mode from 32 Bits/Channel to 16 Bits/Channel and print button its turning back on, not grayed anymore.
