How should I brighten my images when printing?

Question:
Thank you, the info. you provided, it did help. I have been trying to print and the pics are printing darker than what they look like in photoshop. Any suggestions? Answer:
Yes, this challenge is not uncommon when printing.  Often the printer does not give you what you see on your monitor.  (Please take the Photo 285 class to learn how to get better results.)  🙂

Can you help me with printing from an Epson 845 printer?

Question:
I am in desperate need of help!!!!! I am having a hard time figuring out a few things. I have Photoshop Elements 10 and an Epson Workforce 845 printer. Not sure which printer to pick for color settings…..from the drop down list…..you have US web coated swap v2? Do I pick Epson? Also you have ‘relative colormetric’ but You tube video said ( for elements 9 ) use perceptual? UGH…….any help would be sooooooo much appreciated!!! And yes, I waited too long to start printing….I know…you warned us that it would take longer than what we thinkmixed.

 

Answer:
OK, let’s see what we got here.

I looked up your manual online.  It appears that the printer’s menu options are very different if you are on a Mac vs a Windows computer.  There are step-by-step directions for both found at http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/wf845_/wf845_ug/index.html
Here is a link to a quick video on what to look out for with each:
To answer your questions directly…
You want to pick the Epson 845 printer from  your printer options list.
You may use either relative or perceptual and be just fine!  🙂  (Absolute and the other one are for graphics printing, not photos.)
Good luck with your printing!  I have faith you can pull this off!
