Epson R800: Where to start?
The is my first experience with a seriously good color printer. As might be expected, I am having trouble getting prints that look good. No color calibration tools, at least not yet. My last color printer was/is an Epson 1520. Recently I have printed most of my photos at the local Costco. Generally the results have been acceptable. So I think my display (Diamond Pro 900) is somewhere close to acceptable.
The paper is I have is Epson Glossy Photo Paper (S041141). Using it because I have a box of 120 sheets to use up. Following Epson's instructions, I had PhotoShop CS choose a Print Space Profile of SPR800 Photo Paper. I told the Printer Drive ICM Off and Premium Glossy Photo Paper. The result is rather dull, a bit low in contrast.
I know the colors will not precisely match the display, but I expected clearer yellows and greens.
Where do I start? Different paper? Specifically the newest Premium Glossy?
Different profile? Bite the bullet and purchase a calibrator/profiler?
