    Hi Everyone,

    This may be a known issue with the Epson Stylus Photo R360 which has left me tearing my hair out.

    I wonder if any of you have any suggestions about how to correct a terrible bleached 'reddening' of any images I print on DVD's using the Epson R360?

    I've downloaded the all latest R360 printer drivers from the Epson website (properly uninstalled/reinstalled) and cleaned print heads but still get the reddening.

    By selecting the Custom Colour PGPS option and turning colour management off I am able to print with okay colour onto A4 (albeit with a slight blue colour cast).

    However, when I try this same method to print onto DVD's I am getting a red colourcast (heavy magenta). Any suggestions about how I can solve this please?

    It appears this may be a known issue between Mac OSx and Epson, as per below. I am merely inputting JPEG images into "Epson PrintCD" but am getting the terrible magenta cast. Should I use a program such as 'Colourburst' maybe? Am totally bewildered about how to solve this.

    Photoshop + Epson + OS X 10.4.6 10.4.7 10.4.8 10.4.9 has known printing problems, specifically:
    • Posterized posterization in reds red skintones skin tones.
    • Prints dark darker than monitor.
    • Magenta cast green cast (this may or not be related to the bug, but has generally been associated to double colormanaging management).

    When you choose Photoshop Manages Color (Photoshop CS3) or Let Photoshop Determine Colors (Photoshop CS2) in the Print dialog box and correctly disable Color Management in the printer, the Epson Stylus printer drivers ignore the profile information and double color profiles. This results in over saturated images or images with a color cast.
    To avoid this issue, select the option to let the printer manage colors.*

    Any suggestions truly appreciated.

    All the best
