    Help with new R2880 printer?

    Well, I decided that I had to have a printer, so I got the Epson 2880. I have installed Epson's new drivers and their Premium profiles. After i added teh Premium profiles, my colors are much, much better, but the prints a all a bit dark. How do I make an adjustment to save so that all images are adjusted a bit lighter? Exposure, brightness, curves, what? Thanks for any help.
    I still hope that I can get the 3880 in the Spring.

    Hi Durr,

    Are you having trouble with color or B&W? Very different solutions, from my experience. If you are printing B&W with the ABW option, I believe the standard setting (and I'm coming from the PC world, so the exact setting name/location is likely different on a Mac and I'm also writing this from memory, since I'm not at my home computer) is "Neutral" (for the tone...like Warm, Cool etc) and "Darker". I always find the "Darker" setting is much too dark and I start with "Normal"....that should get you much closer for B&W.

    If Color, there are a couple of settings if you are using the No Color Adjustment option for increasing the Brightness and/or Contrast of the print itself. You could obviously pump up the Brightness by 10-20% and see how that looks.

    Hope this helps a little. Good luck and congratulations on the 2880! Great price on that printer right now.

    Gary

    Thanks Gary. I will give it a try. One more question. I downloaded the Epson Premium profiles by their instructions. Now when I open PS or LR or Aperture the profile windows and icons pop up on my desktop. What's up with that?

    That's not something I've encountered. Maybe someone else who is using a Mac can help.

    Now, I have screwed something up. I was trying to eliminate the popups by deleting the printers software and reinstalling. NOW it won't print at all. error: rastertoescpll failed

    PLEASE HELP
