Epson Epson Stylus Photo R1900

Epson photo R1900 prints too dark

Use Adobe photoshop elements 6.Colour management -photoshop. Printer profile- working RGB.Rendering Intent- relative colorimetric. Printer preferances-advance-Colour management ICM-off(no colour management).
I use Epson premium glossy & epson ink, but the photos are all very dark.
Put in the lastest Epson print drivers-no differnce
Any suggestions ?
I assume you've tried turning the ICM back on to reduce the amount of ink being put onto the glossy stock? Among other things, ICM and ICC profiles are used to vary the amount of ink used to print on different types of media. If you need colour management off for other reasons, I'm afraid you may need to manually adjust colour saturation to get the results you require. Personally, I've always found that to be a long trial and error process.

Being in the printing industry (FinerWorks.com) we occasionally get this complaint. Most of the time with our customers it is because their monitors are not properly calibrated and projecting too much gamma, or brightening up the image.

Another possibility is you need to modify your workflow. Rather than use the working RGB, in Photoshop, select the media profile for the type of paper you are printing on rather than working RGB. Also select Perceptual. That is usually a better rendering intent.
