post Mountain Lion: all photoshop prints coming out with cyan tint
Hi All,

I've just upgraded to Mountain Lion, and all of my prints produced by Photoshop CS6 are now coming out with a cyan tint. It's driving me crazy (and making me broke, so many wasted sheets of paper!). Under Lion, I had perfectly accurate prints.

I've upgraded the Epson software (Epson R3000) and Photoshop, re-calibrated my monitor and printer profile. No changes.

Any suggestions as to how to proceed? (how about how to downgrade back to Lion?)

Thanks in advance for any help,

- Are you running out of ink.? (dumb question, I know)
- Does this happen only with CS6.?
- It is possible one or more of the color profiles may be corrupted. Go to Utilities->ColorSync Utility select Profile First Aid, clic on Verify.

Have you tried to reset the printing system (System Preferences, Print & Scan, right clicked the printer and selected "Reset printing system…") delete the Epson R3000 and added it again.?

Those are all excellent suggestions, and I know for sure because...I've already tried all of them (repairing colour profiles was new to me, glad I learned about that, and checking for a clogged nozzle/low ink was, embarrassingly, one of the last things I tried).

I've even re-profiled my printer for this particular inkset and paper. This got rid of most of the tint but, amazingly, there is still a bit left. I'm genuinely confused.

Thanks very much for the very good advice, I do appreciate it. To solve the problem, I had to boot into my emergency Snow Leopard drive (a mirror of a long-ago upgraded startup disk, running CS4) and print from there. That at least tells me it's a software problem, but I haven't yet determined if it's the OS, or Photoshop.
