The answer is that you make a cmy equivilent profile to the rgb profile. How? Go to Andrew Rodney's web page: http://www.digitaldog.net/ and download the rgb soft proof photoshop action. This will make a cmy profile from your rgb epson 3000 profile. Load this into the cmyk setup as usual. > > 2.

I'm assuming that we must again select the Epson ICC > profile, and, that we must not select the "color management" option. He > also has a number of options under "more settings." What is the best choice? I'm not a professional printer but I'll take a stab at this as I made some proofs on cheap paper to simulate expensive watercolor paper. I used the apple colorsync filter that came with colorsync and is found in the photoshop filters menu. It's a free download from apple if you need it. The filter does profile to profile like photoshop but has a nice proofing feature that will apply two profiles for just this type of proofing. So. 1) source is working space, destination is Iris, Probably perceptual intent. 2) source is Iris and destination is epson 3000, relative colormetric intent. Print through epson driver with all color correction off or set to "no color correction". This should simulate the Iris on the epson. CD Tobie is an expert at this, maybe he'll get to answer. - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for instructions.
