I have an image which was created in Adobe Photoshop and is being inserted into a Word Document.
The document contains a rectangle with a coloured fill which the image sits on top of.
The same RGB values are used for the colour in Photoshop and Microsoft Word and this looks perfect on screen however when the document is printed the image colour comes out a darker shade than the document colour.
I have changed the display and Photoshop colour profiles to sRGB IEC61966-2.1.
When I take a screenshot and colour pick the document and image colours in Photoshop they have the same RGB values.
EDIT: Just to check - my problem isn't that the chosen colour isn't identical to the on-screen colour (I know and accept that the printed version will be darker). My problem is that if I create a solid coloured rectangle in Photoshop and then save it. When I insert the image into Word and then add a rectangle as a Word shape and use the same RGB colour settings for its filled background and click print the image colour will print darker than the Word colour.
