Hello,

I have just started printing with my Epson and am using Red River Matte photo paper as well as the appropriate color profile that they have provided for my printer, but for some reason every print has a reddish tint. I've tried playing with the color sliders, but can't seem to get rid of it. I tried switching the profile to the "managed by printer" profile option and that gets rid of the reddish tint, but the pictures look considerably better with the Red River profile. I'm not sure where I can go from here, but any help would be appreciated.

I'm using Lightroom 6 and an uncalibrated laptop. I would also like to add that I have come across a few sites describing the same issue, but none offer a fix for it or at least none that I could see.

Thank you,

David

Nevermind, I figured it out. I never downloaded the drivers/utilities from Epson, but instead I was using the driver that came with my laptop, which didn't have as many options as the Epson Driver dialog box. I was able to check the box, so that the printer did not use ANY color management profile and that fixed my reddish tint! I was also able to select borderless in the dialog box and now I don't have the white border around my print. Picked this printer up for about $10 and it now prints 100x better!! No more having to wait to get my prints delivered.

Glad you figured it out. It is especially gratifying that way.
