Printing from Photoshop to EPSON SX205 on a Mac

Can some one help me !!!

When I print directly from Photoshop Elements to my Epson printer, the images are significantly darker on paper than on screen. I am using a MAC and I never had this problem when I printed from my Windows laptop or even when I print from Iphoto

I have tried to tweek the print setting on the Mac when printing, but I am still not getting right but rapidly going through print cartridges and photo paper instead !!!

Thanks in advance

I wonder if you have a conflict between Elements handling the print management and the printer handling it

Could it be that your Mac screen is set to a gamma of 1.8 rather than 2.2?

That would potentially cause you to produce dark prints, I think, because an image prepared on a 1.8 gamma screen will look darker when it is reproduced in an sRGB (gamma 2.2) environment.
