    Yes. :)
    Right. Well, if you were using Adobe RGB you']d find you wouldn't have
    to do quite so much tweaking. In fact, with a proper management set up
    I rarely have to do any tweaking at all.

    Incidentally, you should be really "tweak" before you get to the
    printing stage.
    If an image is printing too red, such that it is obvious when you
    print, you really ought to be able to see it in the Print with Preview
    window.

  2. Photoshop's Print with Preview window is not color managed and not
    reliable - besides that, it is really small!

    Derek - Profiles capture a specific behavior of a single device. Epson
    happens to have enough consistency across their products that they get
    decent results by offering the same profiles to everybody that owns a
    certain printer. Problems arise when a person's printer, such as
    yours, begins to vary from the 'standard' that Epson used to create
    their profiles. The variation isn't nescessarily a bad thing, but it
    is a problem if the profile no longer describes the behavior of the
    device. Upgrading to a new printer may or may not be a path to more
    accurate colors. The same issues could arise - the new printer varies,
    the profiles don't work. This is one of the big things with the 2200s,
    they are excellent printers but many people don't get the bang for
    their buck unless they have them profiled, and know how to use the
    profiles correctly.

    With that said, it sounds like you'd rather go with the Fuji but
    hopefully that gives you a little insight into your problem.
