Color is printed incorrectly - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Using Photo shop Elements, my Epson 820 was printing my photos with too much pink. I tried going to photoexpert for help, but it only gave 6.0 directions that I couldn't use. I changed my Color management according to the help in Photo Elements. Now my photos are dark, and the gray is teal. I need help....

    Patricia,
    I suspect that you need to calibrate your display with Adobe Gamma, and establish a monitor profile. Then look to printing using the Print with Preview option. Ian Lyons has a great website and talks about both subjects .

    Note that the print settings in Elements are the same as in Photoshop .
    If you are working on the PC platform, I'd recommend you use "full color management" and in the Print with preview dialogues, use " Printer Color management" as an output space profile. I'd also recommend that you use Epson HeavyWeight Matte paper initially, it's an excellent paper, takes a great image, and is relatively inexpensive to work with. I generally cut my sheets in half or quarters, and define those sizes as custom sizes in the print setup area. It makes for inexpensive printing.
