Although Epson's inks for the 1270/80/90 are dry to the touch when the prints roll out of the printer, the color takes a long time to stabilize. I can see it shift in front of my eyes (using PGPP) for the first several minutes it comes off the printer. This isn't ProfilerRGB's fault, its the inks. > I also suspect a much greater difference in print colour between > tungsten and daylight viewing. Please no comments on special viewing > lighting.
