    it -might- be, but such things can have a wide variety of causes.

    One thing to check is the colour profile for the paper you are using – soft proofing can give an indication of potential problem areas. Try different rendering intents as well

    You could selectively reduce saturation of blues, but that’s not a good fix for what is a test image.

    I had a P800 here for review and this was never a problem for any images I printed (see review for more)

    Great pictures to use with my Epson P800, but on the church pictures i’ve started to see colour banding, from the blue sky, would this be down to the colour space being used?
