IOW, I picked the media setting that printed closest to accurate with no color adjustment checked. But then I looked at the tests again and discovered that while the deep colors looked like they lacked separation in the Plain Paper setting, the colors were deeper and richer, especially in the darker tones. It turns out that the profile corrected the "blocking up" and I obtained slightly richer colors, especially in the darker tones. Thusly, I picked the setting that laid down the most ink, with the black generation as best as I could find in the epson driver. -Bruce Visit my website at: http://home.earthlink.net/~smthopr - Turn off HTML mail features.
