Photoshop CS6 / CC and Epson
This brief tutorial will show you how easy it is to properly use a printer color profile from Photoshop CS6. If you're not familiar with what profiles are or why you should give them a try go here.
When using a printer profile, you will tell Photoshop to be charge of color management. This means you will be turning off the color management controls of your inkjet printer in the process.
When your photo or file is ready to print, choose File > Print or hit Ctrl + P on your keyboard.
If you have an older printer scroll down for alternative instructions.
MEDIA TYPE - Start by setting the media type - we tell you the right setting in the instructions that come with the profile download or on the download page. The Red River Paper profile name will not appear in this drop down! Only Epson paper types.
PRINT QUALITY - Pick your preferred print quality. With Epson printers, the "Quality" or "Level 4" setting is recommended for most print projects.
MODE - Set the mode to "Off (No Color Adjustment)". The Epson properties dialog varies from printer to printer. Below are two of the most prevalent driver types. Scroll down further for help with older printer models.
Chances are your Epson printer properties look like one of the below examples. Find the closest one and use it for reference.
Now choose the paper size then click OK to go back to Photoshop. Once there click Print. That's it!
