C David I have always allowed printed profiles to dry overnight before trying to scan to profile. That I understand, but what's bothering me is the time prints must be allowed to dry down after testing a new profile version. A week or so ago you very generously e-mailed me the Photodisk image. I can print it very close to the on screen image but my own prints do not match the on screen image. If I have to wait 24 hours to evaluate each of the fifty or sixty unsatisfactory prints to dry down well, at 72 years I may not live long enough to get a good result. I have had a number of replies suggesting I show patience that all glossy papers have this dry down period. Well, my EX which I sold last month when I bought the 1280 did not require a dry down period, and with Epson inks and the Ian lyons set-up and Epson profiles gave excellent results. I bought Profiler RGB and the monitor to allow me to use other papers i.e. matt and water-colour. I appears that I bit off more than I can chew so I will retire this $800.00 Can in equipment and go back to Adobe monitor control and Epson profiles and stick with what I know. I do want to thank you for your suggestions and dedication to the Epson forums.
