Hello,

I recently purchased an Epson R300 to use with my Mac running OSX 10.2 software. I use Epson inks and Epson Premium Glossy Paper. No matter what options I select when printing, all the images come out dull, with a greenish cast. I've tried printing out of Illustrator and Mac's Preview 2.0 software. Nothing seems to help.

The actual printing quality is quite nice, and the printer is quite. But, just can't seem to get the images to look like they do on the computer. I have this problem with images taken with my Fuji S2 pro digital camera, as well as with those taken using a Nikon film camera. I've had many of these images printed in books and magazines, and they look perfect, so I know it's not the images.

The instruction material supplied by Epson is very short on information. Many of the options available while printing, i.e. print space profile and intent, are not even discussed, leaving me with even more questions. For example, what is the difference between Saturation, Peceptual, Relative Colorimetric, Absolute Colorimetric? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Regards,

Mark

Dear Praffert,

Thank you so much for responding to my question. I have long since thought that the problem was with how I had the software configured, and not with the printer.

BUT, the problem is that there are just so many different options available to choose from, I really don't know what settings are most appropriate for printing images.

In Photoshop, under the color settings menu, there are four options, working spaces, color management policies, conversion options and advanced controls. I don't know how each of these options will effect image output, or if the changes will only effect how an image appears on the monitor.

If you can make any suggestions it would be appreciated. If you know of any online resource(s) that would also be terrific. Unfortunately, Epson does not make any mention of this information in their information booklet. No doubt I'm just like everybody else out there simply wants to have the printed image resemble how it appears on the monitor.

Regards,

Mark
