@dsanchez:  They may have a filter or something that automatically adjusts for their color or type of paper.  I have never used Vista Print so I’m not sure.

@dsanchez:  in what format are you saving the file?

That most likely has to do with the color space – the color profile of the image might be in sRGB and your PS set to Adobe RGB or something like that, the PS gurus should be able to let you know where to edit those settings.

Edit: just reread and saw that it was the other way around – I thought you were opening a Vistaprint template and it was showing differently in PS. Too much caffeine! Same principle though.

@dsanchez:  there is alwasy going to be differences screen to screen and what prints.  It’s never gonna look exactly like you see it on your screen.

colors change when they are uploaded to the internet and embeded on here.  It’s just an internet thing.

When you send the actual file to the lab and or Vista’s embeded in the file, it will print out fine.  The internet screws up files.

When I upload client files to their online gallery, I have to fix the color and sharpen for web.  

Save in sRGB..300 megapixels.

@dsanchez:  yes, it’s a fairly easy fix! I use GIMP, so I won’t know the exact buttons you have to click, but basically you have to set the output color profile to sRGB. I just checked in PS Elements, and there it’s Image -> Convert color profile -> Convert to sRGB
