Paper Selection on my Epsom R1800 & R800 using a MAC

I have just bought a MAC and I can not get my printers to print photographs properly.  There does not seem to be a way to select the type of paper and the quality of print that you want.  This all works very well with my PC but not on the MAC.  So at the moment I am working the photographs up on the MAC and copying them to the PC for printing.  I hope that you can actually print photo's from a MAC!

  • bikemadR1 Oct 08, 2008

    I have two printers the R800 & R1800 (the both use the same ink cartridges).  The main package that I am tying to print from Photoshop but I know from using my PC that it is the epsom software that usually has the quality and paper selection under printer properties.

Hmmm, I print from a Mac to an Epson Stylus Photo R1800 and a smaller HP inkjet one. What application are you trying to print from? And are we talking about the R1800?

    Go here:
    Applications>Utilities>Printer Setup Utility

    Under the printer list, highlight your Stylus, then click ColorSync on the bar up above.
    Select "Devices" at the top
    You'll see "Registered ColorSync devices:" and a box below
    toggle down Printers
    toggle down Stylus_Photo_R1800
    and you should see a list of possible paper profiles.

    Weird, Photoshop sure doesn't have the same kinds of dialog boxes that the page-layout apps do. I would try printing out of other applications, like InDesign or Quark--their dialog boxes are really thorough.

    Hope this helps, I learned something too. But that whole printer profile section is still a bit mysterious.

I suspect this will be a tricky one! I am printing from a new iMac / CS5 setup. I am using OCP inks and Ilford paper. I am printing the same images to both machines. The print settings are identical....


hi Anthony, i spent a month trying to figure out a similar problem with an epson 2200. Now, the printers are different but not that much, and, the changes in paper and ink gave me "some" color issues but not as bad as what i was getting. your problem seems very similar. i run a PC so this is similar but not exactly the same. what i found was that a Magenta/ violet cast was due to double profiling. I could verify that i had the correct settings but i was wrong! I print from CS3 into the epson 2200. What i found was there is an error(no one is talking about) in the printer driver. You cannot shut off the color management completely! Assume this scenario, you are printing with CS3 applying your profile in CS3. Make the settings in CS3 as normal, then you are directed to the printer settings. Go to the print driver and make the selections for ICM Color, and select "no color". The KEY is to make sure you do this step LAST , make sure to click on the "apply" button, then "Close". Once you make the selection of "No Color" do NOT click on anything else. If you change screens in the print driver once you select "no color mgmt" the driver CHANGES your settings. ANY settings in the other pages in the print driver cause the driver to apply a printer profile, this effectively "double profiles" your photo print causing the magenta cast. None of this should happen if the driver was created correctly but there it is! It took a long time to test and verify but it is as i stated. Once i got it sorted out my photos are excellent ALL the time. Good luck, worm1855.

Trying to print on a #10 envelope from iMac 27 with Os 10.5.1 using iWork. Printer will not load paper


I am on an iMac using OSX 10.5.8 and printing on an Epson R1800. With iWork, word processing module I set up the envelope to print and under the File menu, select page setup and choose #10 Envelope with Portrait orientation. I feed the envelope into the printer in the normal horizontal, top first, print surface up. In the File menu I select Print and hit Return. Most of the time this works. Sometimes the envelope feeds through without printing, and occasionally the envelope won't feed but the printer goes through the printing cycle. The R1800 is not the ideal envelope printer. It is made to print photos on photographic paper. I use an old fashioned typewriter to address envelopes.

Epson R1800 On Print Preview of a photograph


I print with the R1800 as well as the 24" 7880 in my studio. Whenever the "preview" shows less than the whole image I intend to print it is generally either the orientation (portrait/landscpe) is set incorrectly or the Paper size selected is incorrect for the size of the print.

Hope this helps

Under prnter setup utility delete the r1800 printer

Go to finder click on file the find, type com.apple.print, if it find anything drag it all on the trash, it will not disappear from the window ( the prefs and . cache files)

Help! Prints a smeary mess!


it depends on the type of paper you are using.

ink chemicals react to the chemicals on the photo paper.

manufacturers have ¨recommended papers¨ : )

recommendation: ask for paper samples from paper vendors

Epson R1800 and Imac intel


Not sure about this as Mac's are not my bag. Try removing the driver and software you installed. reboot your PC and make sure the printer has gone from the list. Reistall the latest driver you downloaded from Epson and try it again.
