    Hi Everyone,

    Just taken delivery of a new P800, and I can't find anywhere an .icc profile for it and the Epson paper Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster ... not on Epson's site anyway :(

    Seems crazy, but all I can find is this which is just for the fancy paper: https://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Pro/ICCProfilesAll.do?BV_UseBVCookie=yes

    Can anyone point me in the right direction - I've got a job that needs to be printed ahead of Monday (today being Sunday) and I'm stuck and not sure why I can't find it as there should be one produced by Epson no?

    I will be getting a custom one made, but I just need to get this job out the door first.

    Cheers

    Found them ... after searching and searching!

    They were in here: /Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/ICCProfiles/EP1408OL1.profiles
    but the trick is to "show contents" of the .profile file, as it's actually a package. So once you've got past that, then you can see the individual icc profiles.

    I wish they'd be more straightforward about things :mad:


    Just printed a test image with that profile - and it's way off. This is killing me!

    Is your screen calibrated?

    yes ... I've found out what it was that was causing the bad colours.

    The driver was the "air" driver. I had to delete the printer, go to the add printer dialog box, wait for the "IP" version of the printer to come up, and then add that one. I think the air driver doesn't allow proper colour sync - with it you can't turn off the printer's colour controls, which is something you need if LR / PS / ID is looking after the colour instead.
