remaining Steps are common to Photoshop Versions 5 and 6. Having
pressed the setup button Page Setup dialog should appear.
Section of Photoshop Page Setup
that if you have more than one printer installed, it is important to
select the appropriate model in the Printer Name popup.
The Epson Stylus Photo
Printer main Dialog should appear. The actual dialog appearance will be
slightly different for each printer model although printers within the
same family tend to be fairly consistent. I have included screenshots
for both the Epson 750/1200 and 870/890/1270/1280/1290 below so that you
might recognise these differences.
Choose your media type (it MUST be
the same as the profile you selected in Photoshop).
Choose your Print Quality - best
choice is Photo 1440dpi
High Speed should be deselected
Color Management MUST be set to No
the OK button and return to Photoshop to make the print.
for completeness - check that Print Space Profile popup box
still has your chosen media profile selected. If not then reselect
and press the Print button.
If you created or purchased custom ICC profiles for your
Epson printer then one or other of the configurations described above
will apply, which depends upon your version of Photoshop.
One last point. Just as the Epson colour space profile
described at the beginning should not be used with No Color
Adjustment mode it is the case that ICC media profiles should NOT
be used in any other mode but No Color Adjustment. Using any
other driver mode with such profiles will produce prints that look
fluorescent pink/red, so be warned and stick with the settings described,
and PLEASE don't be tempted to use the Epson Print Preview!
