Hi there,

I'm using WIN XP Pro. SP2, Adobe Photoshop CS, and Epson Stylus Pro R320.
when I try to Add another color profile from Adobe CMYK *.icc color profile
I'm getting an error message that says:
"Epson Stylus Photo R320 dosen't support CMYK *.icc color profile"
this problem happend with any CMYK profile but not with RGB.
I have an image as CMYK mode with adobe and the screen color dosen't match
the print at all.

How do I solve this problems.

Thanks,

Convert the image to RGB in PS CS before attempting to print it.

I know it seems crazy, as the image will be converted back to CMYK by the
print driver before it gets squirted onto the page, but that's the way
Epson have decided things should work.

I don't have an Epson "R" series printer, but Epson has never considered
their printers as CMYK devices. They consider them RGB. It is just how
the drivers function. They do the conversion internally to CMYK, so
they do not use CMYK.icc files

In order to get your color more correct, convert your image in Photoshop
to RGB. Then use the color profiles for the correct paper type or other
characteristics the driver allows for, and try printing it.

I have printed CMYK files via my Epsons (older ones) but I had to make
up a special CMYK set of curves for inks. It worked by it was complex
and a bit going in circles, and the files only worked on a specific printer.
