As you probably all know, the Epson drivers for Windows only include a generic ICM profile while the Mac OS ones include several ColorSync profiles, one for each type of Epson paper. I installed the Mac OS driver for my Stylus Photo 810 on a friend's Mac and then copied the Colorsync files to my windows machine, just adding the icm extension. Windows and Photoshop recognised the profiles but I do not get satisfactory results: the Photoshop 6 soft proofing simulates a bigger tone compression with a Photo Paper than with the Matte Paper Heavyweight (I expected the other way round). And printing from Photoshop using the Photo Paper profile (on Epson Photo Paper of course) results in over-saturated colors and shadows. Am I doing something wrong? Maybe the profiles need to be converted (MSB/LSB issue...)? Are the Epson profiles plain crap, or is the Adobe Color Engine inferior to the Windows one, as someone suggested on comp.graphics.apps.photoshop? TIA Nicolas. - Turn off HTML mail features.
