I've used both EZ Color and then Jon Cone's profiles and Prove It! As I've noted here before, big difference/improvement with Cone's! For one thing, it does not require an entire converting of each file for each profile---giving me brilliant fuschia and royal blue 'green' landscapes with a touch of olive and chartruese. For each paper you use, you need to convert from the original, then save if you plan to use it again later--or reconvert. Time and hard drive space and if you need to tweek image, it's a fascinating activity! With Jon's, the original image remains intact and for each paper/printer/ink you choose to print, you take a moment in the epson page setup. Fast, simple and has been accurate for me. That's just one of the reasons. Cone's certainly more accurate than any profile I did in EZC, though the latter got me closer. And if you use cream paper, you are out of luck.
