The profiles available above are provided "As Is" with no warrantee nor direct tech support from either Epson nor Pixel Genius. The profiles have been created and tested by members of Pixel Genius and are being provided to the printing community for free as a public service. Please note that the profiles are individually compressed for download as .zip files and must be unzipped before installation and use. You can download free utilities to unzip these files from Stuffit for Mac and Windows or WinZip for Windows.

We highly suggest that you visit the Epson Professional Imaging web site to make sure you've downloaded and installed the most current printer driver and firmware for your particular printers.

To use these profiles, you should install them in the correct location for your OS;

Mac OS X: /Library/ColorSync/Profiles (available for all users)
Mac OS X: User/Library/ColorSync/Profiles (available for just this users)

Windows98: C:\Windows\System\Color
Windows XP: C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\Color
Windows 2000, XP: C:WinNT\ System32\Spool\Drivers\Color

The Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper is intended to be used with the "Photo Black" ink of the Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink™ or UltraChrome K3 Ink™ with Vivid Magenta ink sets. Under the Media Type, you should choose "Premium Luster Photo Paper" or "Premium Luster Photo Paper (260)" depending on your printer. For 3800/4800/4880 printers, you can load paper in the top feed (regular feed path) but with single sheets only. Loading more than one sheet at a time will result in mis-feeds. For Epson Stylus® Photo R2400 Printers you must load single sheets of Exhibition Fiber Paper through the rear Single Sheet Guide. For additional information on using the rear Single Sheet Guide path see your user guide or visit the R2400 product page.

The Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper is a premium photographic printing paper that requires some extra care when handling. Do not drag corners of the paper over underlying paper. Not unlike traditional silver-gelatin papers the surface can be scratched and is prone to finger prints–the use of cotton gloves or handling by the edges only is suggested.

For detailed instructions on the installation and use of the profiles for Adobe® Photoshop® CS3 or CS3 Extended and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom™, please visit the links below. For additional information regarding the profiles and their creation, please see the PixelGenius Profile FAQ page.
