Well Chris I checked out your link and it is clear that the sRGB converted to Indigo 5000 semi-matte profile is best. How do I import the Indigo profile into Photoshop CS. I figured out how to convert my grayscale to sRGB but how do I get the Indigo Profile into the right place in Photoshop CS? Any info or links to how to do this will be greatly appreciated.  Len

Well I spoke too soon (see my previous two posts). Yes my print head was clogged and when I printed out of Photoshop after the head cleaning I had a perfect print. I had assumed that was the reason for the poor output on the proof print. When I tried again after the previous post I still had the same problem of a very washed out BW print with the proof print. I tried Photoshop again and my print was fine. In conclusion something IS WRONG with blurg. Anyone else with this problem?

Okay everyone- I solved my problem. Very simple-  my print head was clogged which resulted in the very light proof print. I ran a head cleaning cycle and that fixed the problem.

After spending about a week organizing my photos and then entering them into the blurb software I decided to do a proof print. The color proof when printed on my Canon S9000 printer looked pretty close to what I was getting on Photo Paper Plus Glossy. When I printed a BW (looks fine in preview mode with the software) the proof printed on my S9000 was extremely light- just grays and no blacks. If this is what I am seeing for a proof then what would I get back with the printed book? I haven’t read anything on this forum about BW proofing looking too light (extremely light and washed out). I am dissapointed that there are other issues as well with BW that are mentioned on this forum- purple and/or magenta casts. Any feedback? Thanks.
