Paper profiles

7 Feb 2010 1:50PM
Help Please. I'm using an Epson Stylus Photo R 265 for printing, using Epson Premium Glossy and Fujifil Multijet paper. Does anyone know of a site where I can download paper profiles to match these papers with my printer. I've tried searching both Epson and Fujifim sites with no luck.

I used PureProfiles and found them to be very good. You have to pay for each profile but it's worth it.

Hi Sylviwhalley
Most places charge when it's not their paper, sorry if this sounds like a salesman but I was using Epson PG and then tried PermaJet for a change, if you go with their Gloss or Fibre Base Gloss you will hopefully feel like I did, the results are far superior and the profiles, even custom ones, are free. I downloaded the generic ones from their site, not bad but the custom was much better.
Give them a try or just get a test pack, thats how I found the Fibre Base Gloss.

Sylvia, are you sure you didn't install the ICC profiles for Epson papers when you installed the printer? They'll be in the 'spool' folder if you're running Windows, or you can dig around for them in PS through the custom proof dialogue box.

Thanks for the advice. I'll have a look at the PermaJet website, and try searching in the "spool" folder as advised to make sure I haven't already got the profiles in Photoshop.
Thanks again

Fotospeed also do free profiles for their paper. I use their Pigment friendly gloss and Pigment friendly lustre.
