    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

    Thanks

    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.

    HTH

    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.
