New Epson R2880 printer will not interface properly with iMac

When software was installed, and the computer screen had been calibrated with Spyder 2, the resulting prints do not resemble in quality the photo that is on the monitor screen.  The prints are washed out, look overexposed, and simply are not satisfactory.  This happens no matter which type of paper the printer is set for -- plain, matte or high grade glossy. It also happens with both the Macbook and the iMac, so it's not just the one printer that is causing the problem.  Somehow, the connection between the iMac and the printer is not right, although we have followed all the instructions that came with the printer.  Please help!  Phyllis Kedl

I'm getting a new iMac computer with Lion operating system. Will my Spyder2 (purchased in 2005) work with this? If not, can I download an upgrade? Thanks.


In short, NO. Spyder 2 uses Rosetta to run on a Mac, and Lion doesn't support Rosetta.
I had to **** it up and buy a Spyder 3. The plus side is that I can use the Soyder 3 to calibrate my IPad as well as the Mac.

Print and screen color matching is HORRIBLY difficult. It could be a case of old ink, humid air, poor calibration, or different qualities of paper (when comparing two prints).

For best, most consistent products, go to a professional photo finisher/print shop.

Color isn't true


You'll need to calibrate your screen and your printer - calibration is required for every set of paper and ink you use. It's quite a science and an art. I suggest you google "colour space" "printer calibration" "gamut" etc and read up on it. Alternatively you could spend a few hundred quid on a printer calibration tool, either the Colormunki or the Spyder print studio.

It still won't match perfectly, as the way color is created on a screen differs hugely for to how it is produced on paper.

Start with a properly calibrated screen first though (my money is on the Spyder elite screen calibrator and spyder print calibrator)

I'm a pro photographer and I print my own photos - full system calibration is the only way. www.yourhandinmine.co.uk

Epson R2880 trying to change matt black to photo black


There are many solutions posted already - what I do is in photoshop i start to print - even though I cant select the paper I want because the wrong ink is recorded - and I click print preview... then click print. The epson drivers tries to print, THEN detects the NEW ink and sends me back to selecting the paper with the new ink properly sensed. I hope this helps.

Two printers, one computer.


The answer is yes! You can have as many printing deveces as you want. If you are out of USB ports, purchase a USB hub (please plug the printer directly into a USB port to have the device recognized) then load the drivers. If you don’t have the drivers google “epson r2880 driver” and you will be good to go. You will have to select a default printer in ‘Settings’ but you will be prompted each time you print. Happy computing! Doogie
