i generally use sRGB. being as mine is only a month or so old i'm still dialing it in a bit too.

and yes this is the appropriate site to ask such questions since we are talking about an inkjet printer. a truely suberb one too.

Gregersonsalvage- give a moment for someone else to answer before you send a poster off into the internet wilderness. there are other printers in the world then canon. and some actually own and use them.

Sorry about that. It is an appropriate question. I just know there are a lot of answers already posted there on that website of dpreview.com. I haven't seen much in the way of answers here. But if you do find some answers let me know. I try to read alot of them but you can only read so much.

Well... I don't own the 2200 (have several other Epsons though), but either way is OK and theses workflows apply to all printers if you are using Photoshop:

1. If you are setup for color management in Photoshop (ie have an .icc profile), the color management in the Epson print driver option tab should be set to no color correction: http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...t=7954&start=0
The paper type, vivid color, weaving etc... can still be set in the Option tab however if you want more control:

2. If you 're not using the Photoshop color management feature, then like sjms have said, sRGB is what most cameras put out (unless of course you have set your camera for other color space like AdobeRGB or something...), and what Photoshop is set at default as well...

did't mean to come off as the heavy. it's just seemed there for a while that it was splintering off and becoming the canon inkjet forum.

you'll find that in here in these forums that a question will come up over and over and over and over and then over again. NHL can attest to that. we tend to answer them over and over and over and over again for the benefit of those generally brand new and not familiar with the forums. looking in here it can be real confusing for someone with out a clue.

you ave been a great help. keep it up.

Yeah it did seem like it was becoming a canon forum. Canon is a good printer but the 2200 really holds its own in a different class.

Well I thought I would add to this post but I did find some color profiles for the 2200 to be used with pictorico papers. These papers do probide some of the best quality found on the printer paper market.

the 2200 for great prints ...the right way

via photoshop...

fix pic
go to view
proof setup/custom
select profile...ie, paper profile..etc
make duplicate layer
adjust with curves and color
check relative colormetric ..could check paper white but i don't
check black point
uncheck...or do not preserve color
ok, save pic for that paper
now...go to
print with preview
color management
source space...document
make sure profile is as you picked in proof setup
custom...
no color adjustment, no high speed, sset paper size,borderless
etc..
print..

there are a few profiles you can download..monaco etc but epson works
but don't use epson profiles for b&w..i use printer color management

dadadadats all folks
