Attn: All you Computer Techies.. I need help!

Recommended Posts

Thanks you guys!!

 

Okay- the color green I want is the a lime green. Its the same green that I used for my monogram. So if you can see a different shade of green, please let me know.

 

I don't have photoshop here at home, I do have it at work. But I am not familiar with it at all.

 

Last night, when I installed the printer, it callibrated (?) on its own.

 

Anny- I changed the color setting to photo which lightened the green but I will try what you suggested.

 

Tammy, I think we need to start a new thread strictly for our non-nerd computer techies! I don't know where I'd be with out them.. I've had to contact MikkiStreak and Anny for help on my converting my mongram into an image! Can you create a banner- "Computer Techie" so that they are easily recognizable? J/k

 

And, please don't tell me an ink jet is better.. My FI went back and forth debating between an inkjet and laser and thought a laser would be better.. ugh! I am so gullible.

Hey Amy,

 

Ok, I put your image in Photoshop and the green registered at this color. If you are using RGB color is it R150, G202, and B3. If you are using CMYK, it is C40, M4, Y100 and K0. So, if you go into Photoshop and work on whatever image you are using, when you want a color, just plug those numbers in and it will match every time.

 

If you have questions about anything with Photoshop, or want me to convert something, work on it, whatever, just let me know. I was a graphic design major and now own my own Mortgage Company so I am always itching for a project, lol.

Amy I love love love my laser printer.. but I have it at work and I don't have a boss around and I can do anything I want with it.. but I would never buy it for home 'cause each toner cartridge is like 100 dollars and it needs 4.. how expensive are the cartridges for the one you bought?

Well, the toner is about $80 each cartridge. But the reason we got it is becuase we were told we could print about 1000 pages (and would last at least a year) before we needed new toner. As opposed to an inkjet which we would need to get cartridges monthly. But the printer was 10% off so I got if for about $290 (including tax). Its super fast and so far so good. I don't print much at home so I thought it would be a good purchase for all my DIY.

I hope I made the right decision.worried2.gif

thanks Anny, that was my worry. I don't want to have to get up and buy toner when I'm in the middle of a project!
