I've posted in the past re: problems I had with oversaturated images, specifically images of (red) poppies in green field and tomatoes and such funny things. I've all figured it out with some extremely boring tests. I WAS using: Photoshop 5.0, epson photo ex with latest drivers from the UK site. ICM in the printer driver, printer color management and RGB space' in Photoshop's print dialogue. Images are in adobe RGB space. After trying out all the possible combinations: Amazingly, just by switching to 'automatic' in the printer driver and keeping everything else the same the problem clears up and the printer delivers wonderful oversaturated reds that literally glow. (that was my intention from the beginning). Note that by 'oversaturated' I do not mean 'so strong color that there is no detail'. There *is* detail in the luminance and with these settings the printer faithfully represents it. What is most funny is that EXCEPT for these oversaturated areas, printouts using either of these settings are identical to the eye. However with settings #1 the strong colors come out muddy. Kokleong's page also mentions identical results, and indeed the results Seem identical in these two cases - except were there is over-saturation. Tham please make a note in your pages if possible. Results were repeatable each time. I had assumed that since for ordinary photos the results were identical, they indeed were. This is not true. It took me a long time to find out since most of my photos do not have such strong colors, on the contrary. I have not the slightest idea what the epson driver does in each case; I strongly suspect that there are only a few people on earth that do know:) Just thought to post that, maybe someone had the same problems. thank you.
