    This is driving me crazy!!! I've read everything every one of you has
    written - but I still don't have color control. I calibrated my LaCie
    Monitor using their Blue Eye colorimeter. I calibrated my scanner and
    printer using Monaco EZ Color. In Advanced Settings for the PC desktop, I
    made the LaCie ICM file the default. For the Epson Scanner, I made the ICM
    file the default and for the Printer, I print using no color adjustment.
    For the working space in Photoshop CS, I'm using Adobe RGB 1998. My scanned
    prints aren't too bad - but aren't right. They have a bluish cast. My
    prints are all washed out (lack contrast) compared to what I see on the
    screen - and, for one thing, my reds turn to orange when I print. I wish
    one of you guys that is VERY knowledgeable about color control would let me
    call you if you would be willing to walk me through this process. I am a
    photographer and all I want to do is work with RGB. I'm sure I must be
    using the profiles in the wrong way or specifying them in the wrong place.
    Also, where I would expect to see my monitor profile, I don't. Instead, I
    see the canned profile for my LaCie. Bill Hilton??? Mike Russell???
    Flycaster??? If one of you would supply me with a phone number and a time
    to call, I'd greatly appreciate it. I need to get over this stumbling block

    I don't know if I can help, but I had a similar problem when I went from my
    old Epson 1270 to an Epson 2200. I could not get my color balanced to save
    my life. I have an Epson 2450 scanner set to Adobe RGB 1998 as is
    everything that I have. When working in PS7, I set the image profile to
    Adobe 1998. Then when I print I tell the printer NOT to color manage the
    print. I tell it which Paper that I'm using and it seems to work. The key
    seems to be NOT letting the printer dialogue to take over the color
    management. Don't know for sure, but it works for me.

    I'm certainly no expert, but between the two of us we should be able to
    track this down. Post your e-mail (mix it up and let me know how unscramble
    it) - I'll send you my phone number
