We are using the 2000p with Epson ink and mostly premium luster Epson paper. Since we stopped using the original boxed cd driver and downloaded the newest one we had better prints, no problem with them at all. The metamism thing seemed to all but disappear. We use Photoshop 7 on windows xp. The monitor is calibrated with Adobe Gamma and we set the printer options color settings to give us the closest match to our screen.

I had a couple of questions for everyone - Firstly, I'm using a 2000p and just obtained Profiler Plus in the hopes of getting more accurate color out of the printer. So far, my results have been a little odd - in order to get good color out of my profiles I've really needed to crank up the magenta, which gives me a soft-proof that's completely, wildly inaccurate, but which prints reasonably well - is this normal? Also, because of having troubles with color on my 2000p I've been considering switching over to the Gen5 inks - I'm wondering if any of you could share your experience with them to help me form a decision. things that are important to me - the ability to print on glossy/semigloss media (I especially like the Ilford Galerie media) and the ability to get reliable, accurate color (after profiling of course.) Thanks very much :) -charley -- ---------------------------------------------------------------- Charles Bandes Photographer http://www.bandesphoto.com - Turn off HTML mail features.
