I think Russells advice contradicts others who say to leave printer color management OFF and let PS do thework I share all of your frustrations because sometimes i get a print that's dead on, and using the same settings with a different file, pure garbage. There is a serious problem here in that between Adobe, Epson and all the revered PS Authors like Blatner and Fraser all of whom are taking our money, no one has written and illustrated a comprehensive guide to getting photoshop to work with Epson or any inkjet for that matter. The hardware and software vendors are ignoring there customers as are the independent authors who are writing only towards professional Pre-press work. I do appreciate all of you who have website's that attempt to provide this valuable service(lioncity, digital dog etc), but there are even contradictions among the "experts".. This is hard for a "dummy" like me, who just uses his eyes to get a great looking screen image and then can't show anyone a print! I'd be happy to go out and buy a book soleley dedicated to PS and Inkjet Printing, but am hesistant to buy "EZ Color" for 300.00 after already spending 1,000 on printer and software!. If anyone out there hears of a comprehensive guide to this, please post it. sorry for my venting.....but it happens after staying up all night printing a picture of a gorilla and getting one with blue hair! sam Stewart Hemley wrote: > Well said, Cathy. > > Russel, to me you sound like a person who cares about his subject and wants > to help others.
