    1) Photo looks a certain way in Photoshop.
    2) When viewing the Print Preview in Photoshop, it is much brighter and more saturated than the original picture on the screen.
    3) Oddly enough (or maybe not odd, but the key to help someone answer my question), when I open the image in Microsoft Paint, it is that same over saturated thing I see in the print preview window in photoshop.
    4) When printing in Photoshop, it prints the over saturated way(print preview or ms paint), not what's on the Photoshop screen.


    Why does Photoshop's print preview NOT look like what's on the screen right behind it? WHy does it look like the ms paint version? Is something embedded in my computer that overrides the Photoshop?
    So, How do I get it to print what I see in Photoshop, not the print preview or ms paint?

    Thanks. I hope this made sense.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Color space, color profiles. It all lies there. sRGB, Adobe RGB etc... Each one is different, and if you are viewing in one and printing in another, you'll have different results. Just turn color management off.
