Photoshop7 to Epson 1280 printer
I'm a poor photographer and have saved my pennies to purshase a Epson 1280 printer. (Epson has a $100US rebate at the moment) But I've gone thru one set of inks and have two possible good prints. My 8yr. HP printer is still spitting out better & cheaper but without longevity. Can anyone one share thier color management workflow for Photoshop7 on Windows OS to a Epson 1280 printer.
Thank you!

First thing you need to do is to download the paper profiles for your Epson papers. The Epson printer driver default settings are quite close to reproduce the sRGB color space.

Proof your print

1) View -> Proof Setup -> Custom
2) Select your Epson paper profile that you intent to print on
3) Uncheck "Preserve Color Number"
3) Switch between the "Perceptual" and "Relative Colorimetric" to see which one is closest to your original.

If you are printing from PS 7, make sure you have these settings

1) File -> Print with Preview
2) Click on the checkbox "Show more Option", choose "Color Management"
3) In the print space, select your Epson paper profile that you intent to print on
4) Choose the "intent" that best match your original from the proof view.
5) Click on Print then Properties
6) Make sure that the printer papers and settings are the right type
7) On the "Color Management" choice, chose "ICM"

Now you are ready to print. If the color does not come out right, try it with the "sRGB" choice instead of ICM. If that still does not work, your monitor needs calibration.

Have fun! :D

Thank you Thien for your suggestions. I have managed to print though I must still work out many color management & correction issues.
I wish I could say more or ask for more but my access to interent time has decreased dramatically. Thank you again. Jeannie Yes, I always try to have some fun.;-)
