After installing Snow Leopard today, I can't replicate the usual colors I get out of our Photosmart Pro B9180. I'm printing from Photoshop CS3, letting Photoshop manage colors, and using all the same settings I've used for a long time (I took screenshots of the dialogs before upgrading, just to be sure). Everything I print now has a greenish cast, and colors are far more saturated. I tried unchecking "black point compensation", with no effect.
Is there a known difference in the 10.6 driver? Can I revert to the 2007-release driver?

You cannot revert to the previous driver.
It tells you on this page on the HP website.
"Important: Please do not reinstall software from original HP Photosmart, Officejet, Deskjet CDs, or HP web downloads from previous Mac OS X 10.3, 10.4, or 10.5. Older software is not compatible with Snow Leopard. The latest Snow Leopard compatible software is included in Mac OS X 10.6, and you will experience the best performance and functionality if you use the latest HP software. "
Sorry I don't know anything about the the colour cast , I can't even get it to print in 10.6 at all. It keeps telling me that I do not have the correct software installed. I uninstalled the driver (plus the older version of the driver) and then did Apple Software update - it found that I needed the HP driver - so I re-installed it but it still doesn't work.
