When you press the Print button (i.e. top right hand corner of Print with Preview dialog) the Print dialog as shown in Figure 7 should appear.

Chose the highest Print Quality (4) option compatible with the printer/media combination that you require. Halftoning (5) should be set for High Quality. High Speed (6) should be disabled.

Colour Management should be set-up for either Color Controls, PhotoEnhance or ColorSync(7). Using Color Controls or ColorSync mode is probably the best choice for novices and requires that the Photoshop Print with Preview dialog is configured as shown in figure 5 on the previous page. Unless you have good reason to choose differently I recommend leaving the Gamma at 1.8

No Color Adjustment mode is ONLY appropriate when the user is in possession of media type profiles and has chosen to configure Photoshop  as shown in figure 6 (previous page). This setting is the best option for intermediate and advanced Photoshop users.

Note:

  • The Epson GreyBalancer software is NOT compatible with the use of No Color Adjustment mode - ENSURE that it has been completely disabled before attempting to use media profiles.
