Using Epson S041141 Photo Paper on 1160 with Gen4 inks

After using my Epson 1160 with Gen4 inks for the past year
I decided that I wasn't happy with the results I was getting
with the S041141 Photo Paper. The dark colors were all getting
muddied together into a black glob. I thought that's the way it is
and would have to live with it but the other day I tried some
settings I hadn't tried before.

So, anyone that has an 1160 and Gen4 inks and wants to use
a semi glossy paper like S041141 (it's really cheap at Costco)
and doesn't have a custom profile should think about trying these
settings. Afterward, compare the dark areas of some pictures
and see if there isn't more detail present.
Go to Custum Settings/Advanced

I've wasted a lot of paper fooling around with different settings
and these give me the closest results to the Epson ink that I
have found.
