I have an Epson ET-8550 printer which works great. But I don't quite understand Epson's attitude towards software. Easy Print Layout software works but is not officially listed in the list of compatible printers. Why? I am trying to contact customer service about this but I am unable to do so. My suggestion would be: 1 / to include ET-8550 in the list of compatible printers. 2 / add to this software a tool that allows you to include frames and borders. If anyone has any idea how to do this, I'm interested.

... actually, to be clearer, I would like to know a way to add black frame / border to my photos when printing with Epson Print Layer. This while waiting for EPSON to make this improvement to this software, which I hope to see one day. Apart from that, EPL is a very good tool bun!

The Epson Print Layout works just fine with the 8550 or any other epson printer.The easier way to do a black border is in PShop prior to using the EPL. However the EPL does have a setting to use color borders. Just check it, choose your color by clicking in the box. Check scale to fit and use dimension sliders to determine the border width. The ? regarding color - EPL does not impact the color space. you do by your paper set up. You need to put in the type of paper and ICC Profile for the paper. and or if using Epson papers the EPL has a Auto choose which will bring up the appropriate Epson paper profile.You can also use other paper manufactures with this printer. Just be sure to download the icc profiles for the printer. If this is to technical, just select printer determines profile for the paper type you have chosen and most of the time the color will be ok for none critical viewing.
