Bookbinder" <email@example.com> Subject: RE: Epson 1280 Print Space Problem I'm not entirely sure what you are doing, and I'm not on a Mac or using a 1280, but in general if you want to use a custom profile, select it in the Print Space dialog box and in the Epson driver select the appropriate media type and select No Color Adjustment in the Custom-Advanced dialog box. For instance, if you want to use the ColorLife profile, select it in the Print Space dialog box, and in the driver select Photo Quality Glossy Film and No Color Adjustment. If you want to use the canned profile, select Printer Color Management as the Print Space and either select ICM or Color Controls in the Epson driver. In the first instance, you are telling Photoshop to convert your image to the print space you specify (for instance, the ColorLife profile). In the second, you are telling Photoshop not to convert the image, and instead to send it to the driver for conversion. By the way, your life might be simplified by updating the driver. Epson has updated some of the drivers. My 785EPX, for instance, now has a driver that has a ColorLife media setting, which seems to work somewhat better than the ColorLife profile they released last summer. - - David - -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Martin Greene Sent: Sunday, December 30, 2001 10:26 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Epson 1280 Print Space Problem For some reason, when I go to Print, my colors are way off, garrishly red and excessively light in tone, if I choose an Epson Profile and then going to Mode: Custom: Advanced: Color Controls Off, no matter which Epson profile I choose. Under Profile, I can only use Printer Color Management Off: Mode: Custom: Advanced: Color Sync: Profile Epson Standard. I do get reasonably good prints this way, the main problem being that I canıt use the custom profiles now available for Espon Colorlife Paper. All of the printing tutorials Iıve read tell me that I should be able to choose between using a profile or Color Management Off. Yet, I canıt. Iıd really appreciate explanations for this. I am using an Epson 1280, had same thing with 1270, a Mac G4 and Photoshop 6. Martin David et. al. Iıve not explained this problem clearly. But, what you recommend is exactly what Iım unable to do. If I do as you recommend, use a ³custom profile.² ³In the Print Space dialog box and in the Epson driver select the appropriate media type and select No Color Adjustment in the Custom-Advanced dialog box. For instance, if you want to use the ColorLife profile, select it in the Print Space dialog box, and in the driver select Photo Quality Glossy Film and No Color Adjustment.³ The result is color that is way off, extremely pink. The only way I am able to get a print to match what I see on my screen, and my monitor is carefully calibrated with a meter, is to use the ³canned profile² by selecting Printer Color Management as the Print Space and Color Controls or Color Sync in the Epson Driver. With this setup, I am unable to use the Colorlife Profile to pint from. What I can do is choose ³Color Controls² for Color Management and make the adjustments on the sliders as recommended by Epson. Basically, what Iım trying to unerstand is why Iım unable to print using an Epson Profile as my choice in the Print Space. I had this same problem with the Epson 11270 and my current 1280. Remember, Iım using Photoshop 6.1 on a Mac. Martin Martin Martin - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
