I have been using an epson 9900 for 9 months and I still can’t configure Photoshop and the driver to have proper color consistency.
(chosing simple options, not in a very rigorous way, let me do the job with my usual epson paper … but it’s no pro attitude …)
Now I need to use a Cason Paper, and its ICC profile must be used.
See my configuration :
PS manages colors (it’s the only way to use downloaded profiles … and the option is generally recommanded.)
The paper/printer profile (delivered with the printer driver) is used
Soft proofing is on and configured to render this same paper/printer profile
Color management is off.
Then I start the printing process and obtain a print preview that is desperatly different from the softproofing.
In fact the print preview has insane colors … and unfortunatly the result on the printer in consistent with this insanity …
I join the screens of config and preview/proofing comparison …
NB: I use no screen profile for the moment … the color schift caused by this can’t explain the difference between preview and softproofing … (as both should be schifted the same way … right ?)
Thanks a lot for any help !
