My current system is Epson 1400/Windows 7/Photoshop CS6
The 1400 I plan to eventually make b&w only but was initially have been using QTRip 220.127.116.11 with standard Claria inks. I’ve wanted to try the Conecolor Pro inks so installed (all positions), my first set.
My first pass settings were:
Paper: Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster
Results: About equal with both normal and BO settings, very little if any color cast, all very nice prints, comparable to ones I had printed at a Maine Workshop printing seminar recently with their setups. Same results with Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Matte.
However, since you have the ICC profiles set up for the 1400 and Photoshop, I wanted to be able to work thru PS CS6.
First problem, your webpage for ICC profiles (http://shop.inkjetmall.com/About/Profile-Libraries/) lists the 1400 but when I clicked the link, it gives “No Search Results”. Searching the forums, I found a link (http://conecolor.com/icc/Epson1400.html) that does have some, so installed them.
Driver ICM (Basic)
Input Profile: CCK3-1400-EPpremPtoPaperLuster.icm
Printer Profile: CCK3-1400-EPpremPtoPaperLuster.icm
Very heavy magenta color cast. I also tried printing with “greyscale” on, very heavy cyan cast. Actually, I tried this with the 1430 ICC profiles on the current page with essentially the same results…well different color casts but way off.
Obviously, I’m missing something fundamental here and while I did search the forums…but haven’t found a solution.
Thanks for some direction.
