Instructions for use of the PG Profiles in Photoshop CS3 (Windows Vista)

To use these profiles, you should install them in the correct location for Windows Vista;
Windows Vista: Right-click on the ICC profile, and choose "Install Profile" as shown below.

To install ICC or ICM profiles in Windows Vista, simply right-click on the ICC/ICM profile and select 'Install Profile' as shown above.

The Photoshop CS3 Print dialog; there are several important considerations and dropdown selections that must be made correctly in this dialog box.

The CS3 Print behavior requires that you make sure you select the printer you wish to print to. This behavior may be improved in future versions.

In the Color Management options, you should select 'Photoshop Manages Color' in the Color Handling dropdown menu and select the correct profile, in this case SP3800_EFP_PK_2880. If you are printing to a different printer, make sure you select the correct EFP (Exhibition Fiber Paper) for that printer. You should use Photoshop's Soft Proofing Setup to help you decide which rendering intent will best reproduce your image.

Once you click on 'Print' in the Photoshop Print dialog you'll be in the Epson driver. In the Main panel of the Properties dialog, be sure to select 'Premium Luster Photo Paper' or 'Premium Luster Photo Paper (260)'. Which selection you make will depend on the printer you are using. Click on the 'Advanced' button to make further selections.

In the Advanced dialog, make sure you've selected 'Off (No Color Adjustment)' in the Printer Color Management section. The profiles can be used for either 1440 or 2880, but they were designed to provide maximum quality when using SuperPhoto 2880dpi. With the introduction of the Epson Stylus® Pro x800 (and x880) series printers, you can print using High Speed turned off if you've properly run the auto-align procedures. This will literally allow you to print the highest quality even in High Speed mode thus making your printer capable of printing 2X the speed than if printing in ui-directional mode.
