Epson 2200 problems!
Yes, it's (pretty much) the same on the Mac.
Now the question is: How to set it up so that the "double profiling" doesn't occur automatically. The Epson printer driver dialog (i.e., the second dialog) always defaults to "Color Management" set to "Color Controls:Photo-realistic" (with sliders, all set at their midpoint, for changing colors, brightness contrast, and saturation). That being the case, is it supposedly equivalent to leave that, but select the option in the PE dialog which DOES NOT apply color management? And, is that option the one labelled "Same As Source"?
Finally, I'm also confused about what profile to choose when I OPEN an image. Usually I get the following dialog:
--------- (Text from dialog box) ---------
The do***ent XYZ.JPG has an embedded color profile that does not match the current RGB working space.
Embedded: Generic RGB profile
Working: Adobe RGB (1998)
How do you want to proceed?
O Use the embedded profile (instead of the working space)
O Convert the do***ent's colors to the working space
O Discard the embedded profile (don't color manage)
--------- (End of text from dialog box)-------------
Which should I choose?
Does the choice affect the displayed image, printer result, or both?
TIA , Mark (or whoever responds). If the answer to any of these questions are in a FAQ file or user manual somewhere, please point me to same.
