Jerry-- >Bill, I think it makes more sense than anything else. But knowing as >little as I do about color management, how do I fix it? You can't load >proifiles into the scanner software. I tried, but non showed up in the >dialogue box when I clicked on Load. BF: If I were troubleshooting this, I'd take a problem file from your scanner and try to find some kind of conversion or transformation that would strip off whatever the hidden, offending data is. Here are some things I would try: (1) Save as a Macintosh PICT file, then use a freeware program such as GIF Converter to convert it to a GIF file, and try printing the result (from Photoshop if you like) on both the 1200 and 3000. (The idea here is that GIF Converter doesn't know anything about profiles, will ignore any profile data in the source file, and will create a profile-free GIF file.) If both printouts look the same, then you'll know that some kind of hidden data has been removed. (2) In Photoshop 5.0.2 go to "File -> Color Settings -> Profile Setup..." and uncheck all the "embed profiles" checkboxes up at the top of the dialog. Make a new scan and bring it into Photoshop then save it. Then re-open it and try printing to both printers. (3) If you are scanning using a separate program (rather than using an import plug in and lets you scan directly into Photoshop), the check to see if the scans are in TIFF format. If so, use a program such as GIF Converter (I think this can open TIFF files) to save it as a Macintosh PICT file. Then open this in Photoshop and try printing to both printers. (The idea here is that TIFF files can have stuff in them that can give viewing/printing hints about how to use them. PICT files can't (except for ICC profiles). So this might be another way to strip out hidden data.). >I believe when you load the epson 1200 software, it gives you colorsync >2.0. >I think that the epsln 3000 driver does too.

If there are two files named "ColorSync Extension" (EXTREMELY UNLIKELY) then get info on them to check the version numbers, and move the oder one to the desktop (so the system won't find it upon restart) and restart your Mac. >Should I load the newest version of color sync into the profiles and >dump the version 2.0?
