Ok Keith so i have tried your profiles with some test images (incl. Outback print image).

Thank you for providing me your ICC profiles (Damianos4991)!

Unfortunately they don't seem to work well on Windows 10 (PT-101 and LU-101).

Magenta becomes light pink and Blue becomes purple for some reason on Windows.

Fortunately using just the Driver, provided some decent results.

Generally good color prints but lackluster B&W (expectable).

Nothing spectacular but decent enough for home printing.

Tried a suggestion to print with "paper=Other photopaper" but it provided me a mess.

With these papers i haven't experienced any dots outside the printing borders.

Thanks for that.

It looks as I suspected and they are only profiles that correct the driver 'black box' found with the Mac AirPrint driver.

They work quite well for B&W printing on the Mac.

It looks as if custom profiling (Mac or Win) is key to getting reasonable results from these printers...
