and you're sure you're using the right printer profile in the LR Print module?

and you're not double profiling (printer driver set to let NO management) ?

Howard,

Thanks for suggestions, yes exactle the same print profile, my own and the generic paper profile. Bot look very much the same.

No colour management in the Epson box, same as with CS4.

Now when the print preview shows I can clearly see an over saturated image and also looks too sharp, If I print it it is slightly less sharp and saturated. I tried turning both LR3 and printer driver to printer manages colours and the preview then showed a more correct colour but far too dark. I could adjust this via the printer dialog box but it would be very hit and miss. So at the moment I am still at a loss and keep going through the settings to see if I am missing something.

Thanks for your help

John B
