I have just upgraded to an iMac and Leopard I am trying to produce color match prints from InDesign CS3 files on my EPSON Stylus Photo R1800. Colors are close but definitely not accurate enough to pass as color match proofs.I have read your entry on August 22, 2008 regarding the driver for Intel Duo Core systems. I want to make sure this will solve the color management issue for InDesign before trashing the existing EPSON drver and downloading a new driver. Please advise. Thank you.

Not an uncommon problem. Monitors are normally adjusted to what the viewer considers the ideal FOR THEIR viewing which has not relation to what the image is actuall like-hence the mismatch in what you see and what the print looks like.
your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below: 1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile. 2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment 3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.
I was also having problems with my Epson scanner on my iMac. I read that the best way to solve Epson's problems is to (1) uninstall all Epson software from your HD, and (2) download the appropriate drivers from Epson and install them.
Note: The Epson R1800 has two drivers: the most recent is an update. So, you must first download and install the Printer Driver v6.12. When that's done, then download and install Printer Driver Update v1.02.
I did that and I still got dark prints. Then I got an inspiration. In the Print dialogue box, I changed my Printer Profile to the paper I was using, Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper, instead of using sRGB and/or Adobe RGB. Specifically, I used SPR1800 PrmLstr PhotoRPM.icc. The next test print was virtually spot on to what was displayed on the screen. I am now a VERY happy camper.
Please pass this info onto anyone else who can use it.
Which mac are you using the intel based or intel core 2 duo or powerpc macs? you can check that when you click on the apple icon and then about this mac. did you download the updated driver on Epson's website? pls respond right away so that i can help you on this. Chances are the driver didnt load properly, mac computer is using the generic or resident drivers installed on your computer, that is a guten print driver. Thanks and sorry it took me awhile to respond.
I had the same problem and read everything I could find about it. Finally after tinkering around, I discovered that printing everything using "Photo Enhance" setting produced the best pictures. Also, I use a calibrated monitor and print through Photoshop Elements 5. Lots of Luck! Cyndy
You can try using Microsoft word in printing on envelopes, it is easier. On my MS word>tools>letters and mailings>envelopes and labels>click on feed and use the fourth from the left option.
Load the envelope at the right side of the printer> the envelope flap should be on the left facing the printer.
