Epson R3000 - first print, super crappy
Nov 3, 2012

Hi there,

I just purchased a R3000 printer and couldn't wait to bring it home, set it up, and print some of my artwork. I'm working on a Mac OS X 10.6 and printing on matte presentation paper (but will likely be printing on much thicker card stock paper in the future). The first print came out MUCH darker, with a lot less contrast and less saturation than the file on the computer which really disappointed me considering this is supposed to be an excellent printer. I didn't print it from Photoshop, but instead just printed a pdf file straight from preview, therefore I wasn't able to choose any color options. However, I did just try printing the file again from photoshop and was able to follow these instructions for printing with a color profile: http://conecolor.com/icc/Printing%20With%20a%20Color%20Profile.pdf

But the print still came out looking like crap.

Could someone please help me? Thanks.

Laura
