Cathy, that profile is not for Epson Photo paper (printing the right glossy
paper with it?)

You need to specify the profile in Space, set the Advanced settings to Back
Lit Film (DO NOT USE GLOSSY SETTING), no color adjustment, 1440, super,

And try ColorMatchRGB as your RGB setup as Bruce RGB is too large a color
space for you to print.

We have got a ton of people who have downloaded the same profile and report
really good results.  Let me know if you have improvement after using the
profile correctly.

 RGB grayscale printing on a 6 color printer is a bit tricky - we do
generate grayscale profiles especially for that purpose. Your profile
however is for color printing.
