The following updated ICC profiles are provided by Epson America, Inc. free of charge and include step-by-step instructions in the User's Guide. They have been produced by Epson America's color management team for customers who are using the Epson Stylus Photo R800. In most cases, these premium ICC profiles will provide more accurate color and black and white print quality than with the standard profiles already shipping with every printer. These profiles have been updated to improve fine details in shadow and dark color areas.
These have been revised from the premium ICC profiles found on the Printer Software CD and can be identified by their R1 designation. These ICC profiles are intended to be used within a color management system such as Apple's ColorSync®, Microsoft's ICM, or Adobe application software. Instructions are located in the User's Guide under the Managing Color with Profiles section in the Printing Special Photos chapter. These instructions explain step-by-step how to use these profiles within Adobe Photoshop for both Macintosh and Windows operating systems.
