    Re: Need a profile

    Thanks for that Patrick.

    This all started because I profiled my computer with the Club's Spyder3 last night and then did a print which did not match my screen.

    Another profile later and 2 more prints of a colour chart that I downloaded, and still I was no nearer when printing through CS3 and letting PS manage colour.

    I imported the chart into Lightroom and because I couldn't find the profile, I used the printer dialogue box where all the Epson papers are available. I used "Photo quality Glossy Film" (recommended by the people who profile monitors etc." and I checked "Managed by Printer" and "Enabled Colour Management in the Printer Driver Dialogue box."

    I CANNOT BELIEVE IT I have never had such an exact match from my print to the screen.

    Even when I had it professionally profiled, the lime greens were really dark.

    I am so pleased. In fact, I think that some time ago Patrick said that he had a reasonable print by letting Lightroom do it through the printer.

    Anyway, thanks a lot. I am off to see Cinderella now - a local production.

    Patrick see the attached thumbnail with my available profiles. There are only 2 and these are the two which appear in Lightroom.


    Thanks to all of you for your interest.

    • SP1290 RC - Premium Gloss Photo Paper
    • SP1290 MP-H - Heavy Weight Matt
    • SP1290 GF - Glossy Film
    • SP1290 PP - Photo Paper
    • SP1290 PQP - Photo Quality Paper

    The mnemonic is different to the later printers for premium glossy photo paper (PGPP). You need to look for 'RC'.

    If it's not there, you can download the profiles from the Epson UK website at:

    ..look under ICC Profiles.

    I may be wrong but it could be that the profiles require activation. If this is the case Audrey go to My Computer click your C: drive and follow this path Windows>system32>Spool>Drivers>Color here you will see a list of every profile on your machine. Find the Epson drivers you are missing and right click if I am correct about your problem you will get a list headed by install profile, click this and that should solve your problem.

    If you click on the thumb in my post above you will see all the Epson profiles, but Glossy paper is not there.

    You are probably using a newer printer.
    My printer is an Epson R285

    I don't think profiles are specific to one version of Windows. I will try to get an answer from Epson - even if I have to pay them a visit (they are literally 5 minutes walk down the canal from here )

    It looks then as though you can't do exactly what you want because Epson don't support Windows7. I went on their site and this seems to be the case. It's been pretty much the case with my Epson 2100, they have stopped supporting the Mac operating system and I cannot get the correct colours to print. Unless I pay for a custom profile, the only solution is to buy a newer printer

    Re: Need a profile

    Hi Ian,

    I had already done that. It used to work in LR2 or perhaps it was Vista. Anyway, as I now have Windows 7 and LR3, it doesn't work.

    It may be that there are no drivers for my old Epson Stylus Photo 1290 within Windows 7!

    Anyway, here is what I see.

    I have an Epson Stylus Photo 1290 printer, Windows 7 Home Premium OS.

    I used to have a lot of choices of paper but now only have Epson Colorlife paper (I don't use it) and 1290, 360 inkjet paper.

    The paper choices are still there under printer setup.

    Thanks
    Hi Audrey - switch to the Print module and scroll the right hand side all the way down and you will see Print Job and below that 'Color' Management. Your printer driver should have loaded a suitable profile for Epson Premium Glossy Photo paper. Epson does tend to use mnemonics for its papers and the usual mnemonic for Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper is PGPP. So when you click on the currently selected profile, a box should pop up that offers one or two options, as well as the option of 'others' - if PGPP is not a default, click on 'others' to see a list of all available profiles and look for 'PGPP'.

    Hope this works!
