    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this so apologies if not, but I have designed a flyer using Photoshop CS3 but when i come to print it on my Dell 3100CN Colour Laser, the colours look all drained and dull (and the red looks more like orange).

    Is there anything I can do fix this as I need to get 200 of these flyers printed by tomorrow

    Is it an RGB or CMYK image type? How does your printer handle these image types (converts RGB to CMYK -or viceversa- before printing)?

    Is this a new printer or have you succesfully printed before (color wise)?

    Maybe it's your monitor color calibration that's way off (probably a new monitor?)?

    Good place to start is by checking your color settings (Edit>Color Setting) maybe some "unconventional" profile or working space is selected.

    If you can provide some for feedback maybe I can be of more assistance.


    PD - I notice your urgency in resolving this issue. I'll be out for a couple of hours and as soon as I get back I'll check with you again.
