Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

Color image imported is way off

I'm using photoshop to design an image to print onto the surface of a dvd. When I save the file as a jpg, and import it into the Epson Print Cd software, the color is extremely different. (The original is a vivid pure blue, when it is imported into the Epson software, it becomes an aqua-blue/green.)

Any ideas of how to fix this issue? Altering it in Photoshop to an even more extreme blue, doesn't seem to make much difference when it reaches Epson.

Re: Color image imported is way off

TIP : always set image on RGB, printer drivers or programmed to convert RGB to CMYK then sending it to the printer. printers understand CMYK only.

How do i select the destination of a scanned file ie photoshop using epson scanner tx550

Firstly, the best way to get more from the scanner is to use it via an image application which is twain compatible e.g. serif photoplus, photoshop or gimp. Run the program, click file, then either aquire or import depending on the application you are using, the twain will then start the scanner software, use the scanner software as shown in the manual and this will produce the scanned image in e.g. photoshop. Click file on the program and click save as. This will give you the opportunity to save the file either onto the internal hard drive or an external memory stick etc. hope this helps

Send scanned document too the computer

For this issue that you are having. You need to have the printer connected to your network. You need to have the manual for the printer setup. Once it is connected to your network. You will be assigning an IP address for the printer. You need to add it on your printer list using its ip address. Once connected, try to go to the printer itself. Look at the menu and look for the scan folder. The scan folder must contain the ip address of the computer you are sending the copy to and also the exact location of the folder it will be saved. Onced setup, all you have to do is to press the scan button then it will automatically save it to your preferred computer folder. Please be also noted about the file formats that your scanner will create. Usually, people uses jpg,jpeg but i recommend .Tiff cause it won't loose the quality of the scanned picture or document
