I agree that this is frustrating, but think we're maybe expecting too much from Epson. Metamerism is a fact of life in far more than inkjet printers. I bought a ring last week in Mexico City. It has a stone that looks very much blue in daylight, but black under incandescent. Should I send it back for a refund? Do with some magazine photos what you did with your P2000 print. I bet, in a lot of cases, you'll notice similar effects. We don't normally notice it because (1), we're not familiar with the original image, so don't know what it should look like and (2), we don't normally carry images between different light sources while we view them. The mind's eye is very forgiving. That sand dune may look too green to you, but to someone who sees the print ONLY in that light, it's still going to look like a sand dune. ===== Bob Meyer Youth and talent are no match for age and treachery. http://home.cox.rr.com/meyerfamily/epson/epson.html __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
