    Print Problem - bluish tint in otherwise white t-shirts

    I'v just finished enhancing a group photograph from the early seventies for a friend,there is a fair amount of colour contrast in it,and all looked fine on screen.The colours printed good bar four shall we say brilliant white shirts which appeared from the printer with a sky blue tint. I never had this problem before and can't understand why all the other colours printed fine, even less brilliant white.
    The editing software is Adobe Photoshop Elements 7,the printer is a canon pixma MP620 and canon Photo Paper Pro 11.
    I would be most grateful for any suggestions,
    Best Wishes

    Hi Colin,

    Thank you for your reply,in the interim I appear to have resolved the problem which was more of an oversight on my part.
    I opened the jPEG image in ACR to see if I could improve it some more and on returning to the editor never noticed it had opened as 16 Bit. I changed to 8 Bit and printed a part of the image that had earlier printed bluish and it came out fine.
    I presume it was the printer changing the image to 8 Bit that caused the tint.

    Thanks again
    Best Wishes

    Pat
