Specific Printer/Printing Question - Epson Stylus Photo 925 and Print with Preview

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by SoCal Nikonian, Apr 2, 2005.

  1. This is more of a "I'm puzzled why it works this way, but not that"
    question.

    For my digital images/photos, I have the Working Space as Adobe RGB. As
    noted above, I have an Epson Stylus Photo 925. Epson recently released an
    updated version of their Print Image Matching software which installs
    specific ICC profiles for their papers.

    Scenario 1: Source Space is still set to Adobe RGB. Print Space is set to,
    for example, StylusPhoto 925 Glossy Photo Paper (profile for this printer
    and their Glossy Photo Paper). Under Properties, I choose Custom/Advanced
    settings and choose No Color Adjustment (per the printer manual's
    instructions, and everything else I've read). The print comes out with a
    definite blue/green color cast.

    Scenario 2: Source Space at Adobe RGB. Print Space is Printer Color
    Management. Under the Printer properties, I choose PhotoEnhance (and either
    Standard or People, depending upon the shot). The print comes out fine.

    My question is - under Scenario 1, what am I doing wrong? Technically, the
    print should come out fine, but it doesn't.

    Would appreciate any input/thoughts here as to what I might be missing.
