Kodak PPP-3-A profile for Imageprint

    I am using ImagePrint (IP) and would like to use it with a profile that
    works for Kodak's Premium Picture Paper (PPP-3-A). The only IP profile for
    Kodak papers is for the "professional inkjet paper". That profile does
    **NOT** work with the PPP-3-A.

    Does anyone know which ImagePrint profile is best for the PPP-3-A paper?

    Note: when I use Kodak Easyshare, prints on PPP-3-A look great. HOWEVER,
    Easyshare's options on how to arrange photos on a page are limited. For
    example, I typically print three 4x6 on one letter-size page (2 portrait,
    one landscape). Easyshare allows two 4x6 per page and hence will waste
    substantial amounts of paper. Is there a workaround there?

    Thanks

    Greetings Marc,

    When you note that you are using ImagePrint, can you elaborate on this
    feature. What printer are you using, software (if not ImagePrint software)
    etc. There are profiles for most printers on the Kodak web site. Find them
    at:

    http://www.kodak.com/go/inkjet

    On that page click on the Printer Settings option to the left. Find your
    printer to get specifics on the paper you are using. Kodak does not provide
    ICC profiles save for some of our Professional Papers. This is usually
    included in the software used in printing.

    Let me know if you find what you are looking or elaborate on the details you
    need.

    Ron,

    Many thanks for your reply.

    The printer I am using with ImagePrint (IP) is the Epson Stylus Photo 2200.
    The only IP profiles for Kodak paper are for the Professional inkjet paper
    and do not work with PPP-3-A (skin tones are way too red).

    I had already looked at the Kodak Web site and found the settings for my
    printer. The results were bad. The only time I got good results (actually
    great results) was with Easyshare. However, Easyshare does not give me much
    control in setting up my print sheet.

    What I want is being able to print three 4x6 in one letter-size sheet. It
    would be nice if I Easyshare would allow me to place my images anywhere on
    the sheet. IP allows me to do just that and hence my request for the proper
    IP drivers.

    If you know of a workaround on Easyshare, please let me know.

    Thanks for the help.

    Marc

    Greetings Marc,

    One way around this issue is to create an image that contains the three
    pictures you want to print. For example, reduce the image size to exactly
    4x6 and add to a page in Photoshop or some other program. Orient the images
    the way you want them then save this as a single image. You can then call up
    the EasyShare Software and bring in that file. Once it is in place, you can
    print it. It should come with similar quality to the other images you have
    noted that print acceptably in EasyShare. It is at least worth a try.

    Talk to you soon, Marc,
