Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

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.

    My boss figured out the problem. The file was set as CMYK, and I just had to set it to RGB and the issue was resolved. Hope this helps someone else.

    (sorry if I put this in the wrong area of the forum! Thanks anyway.)

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

Illustrator to photoshop

Here is everything you will need. I hope you will find this worthy of a FixYa rating.
Import Illustrator CS2-CS3 artwork into Photoshop CS2-CS3
What's covered In Adobe Photoshop, you can import Adobe Illustrator artwork in several different ways, each of which offers a different level of control. When you open or place AI, EPS, or PDF files created by Illustrator, Photoshop rasterizes vector artwork and removes the ability to edit transparency, fonts, layers, and paths. To retain more control over imported Illustrator artwork, Adobe recommends that you drag or paste it into a Photoshop image or export it in Photoshop format.
Drag Illustrator artwork into Photoshop Dragging Illustrator artwork is the quickest way to import it into Photoshop. By default, Photoshop creates a new layer for the dragged artwork and imports the artwork as a Vector Smart Object. (For more information, see "Smart Objects" in the Photoshop Help.) You can import dragged vector artwork as a work path, however, by holding down Control (Windows) or Command (Mac OS) while dragging. To center imported artwork in the Photoshop image, hold down Shift while dragging.
Note: To import dragged type as a work path, you must first convert it to outlines in Illustrator. For more information, see "Modifying letterforms as graphic objects" in Illustrator Help.
Paste Illustrator artwork into Photoshop When you copy Illustrator artwork, you can paste it into Photoshop and retain many Illustrator features. To do so, however, you must properly configure Clipboard preferences in Illustrator.
Clipboard preferences in Illustrator
The Illustrator Clipboard supports a variety of formats including: PICT, PDF, and AICB. Though Illustrator always copies PICT data to the clipboard, you can configure Illustrator so that it also copies PDF or AICB format. These two formats allow you to retain Illustrator features in artwork pasted in Photoshop. PDF retains Illustrator transparency, while AICB format retains Illustrator paths.
You should only select the AICB format by itself if you are going to be pasting paths in to Photoshop. In all other cases, select the PDF format or the PDF format in conjunction with AICB. The PDF format retains transparency and other features in Illustrator such as extended support for spot colors.
To configure Clipboard preferences in Illustrator:
  1. Choose Edit > Preferences > Files & Clipboard (Windows) or Illustrator > Preferences > Files & Clipboard (Mac OS X).
  2. In the Clipboard section, select the desired format.
  3. If you selected AICB, select either Preserve Paths or Preserve Appearance.
  4. Click OK.
Paste options in Photoshop
When you use the Paste command to import copied Illustrator artwork, Photoshop provides the following options in the Paste dialog box:
  • Paste as Smart Object: Pastes the art as a Vector Smart Object that can be scaled, transformed, or moved without degrading the image before it's placed into the Photoshop document. As the art is placed, its file data is embedded in the Photoshop document and the art is rasterized on a separate layer.
  • Paste as Pixels: Pastes the copied artwork in a new layer and rasterizes it at the resolution of the Photoshop image. Use this option when pasting raster objects.

    Note: When you use this option, clipping masks for raster images are not retained as paths. These masks still clip images, however.

  • Paste as Path: Pastes the copied artwork as a work path.
  • Paste as Shape Layer: Pastes the copied artwork in a new vector shape layer. Compound Illustrator shapes retain their attributes and remain editable. Multiple copied paths and clipping masks are pasted as multiple paths that use the unite attribute .

    Note: When you use this option, pasted objects use the foreground color in Photoshop, not the fill color they use in Illustrator. Likewise, transparent objects become opaque.
Export Illustrator files in Photoshop format Exporting Illustrator documents files in Photoshop format gives you the most control over Illustrator artwork in Photoshop. With this method, you can specify resolution and enable anti-aliasing for rasterized artwork. You can also retain the following Illustrator features:
  • Editable text
  • ICC profiles
  • Layers, including nested and hidden layers
  • Masks
  • Transparency
  • Compound shapes
  • Slices and image maps
Note: A compound shape must have either no stroke or a stroke with a round join that uses whole integers for the stroke weight. However, the compound shape can reside on a layer with other objects. In that situation, Photoshop places the other objects on a separate layer in the same layer set.
For more information about exporting Illustrator files in Photoshop format, see "Photoshop export options" in Illustrator Help.
Open Illustrator (AI) files in Photoshop You can open AI files in Photoshop if you save them using the Create PDF Compatible File option.
To save an AI file using the Create PDF Compatible File option:
  1. Choose File > Save As.
  2. Choose Illustrator (*.AI) as the file format, and click Save.
  3. Click Create PDF Compatible File in the Illustrator Options dialog box, and click OK.
