I am trying to print some photos from Affinity Photo to an Epson Expression XP-7100 printer which has been configured for glossy 4x6 prints in both the Epson printer settings dialog and the printer's front panel. When I click "Print" in Affinity Photo, the Epson printer driver throws up an error indicating that there is a mismatch between the size I chose to print and the printer paper size. When I return to the Print dialog in Affinity and then click "Properties" to get to the XP-7100 driver settings, the "Document Size" has mysteriously been changed to "5 x 7" from the "4 x 6" setting I entered previously. I do not have this problem when printing 5x7 photos from AP to the Epson. I also do not have this problem when printing 4x6 photos from the Windows "Photos" app or the older Windows Photo Gallery program, which leads me to believe the problem may be on the Affinity Photo side. Has anyone else encountered this problem?
Hello everyone. I had hoped that such problems were behind me - but no. To begin with, let me say that I had similar problems with my Canon PRO100 but, after months working on them with help from Forum members, several Canon Tech people and Datacolor, I eventually managed to get my printer NOT to do its own color management (Even though color management was set to NONE, it still did it.) I was using Windows 7. Now, on another PC, running Windows 10, I have the same problem with an Epson XP960. The Auto setting does a pretty good job (I am using Epson paper) but I wanted to do better and so created (as I have done many, many times) custom ICC profiles. Soft-proofing on the monitor (a high-quality,14-bit LUT calibrated model) worked just as expected. I then, as the manuals instruct, switched off the color management in the Epson printer dialogs and selected color management by the App in Publisher (and in Photo). I then selected the ICC profile I had just created and printed. The prints were very dark, nothing like what the soft-proofing suggested (and I made sure that I de-selected the soft-proofing before printing). I then tried the additional things that, eventually, got things to work on Windows 7 with my Canon PRO100. (This entailed going into Properties, selecting the device and setting color management to Use My Settings and (manually) adding the new ICC profile to the list. Sadly, and although I have tried all the fixes I had to use to get the Canon PRO100 NOT to do color management (and let the app do it) I simply cannot find a way to STOP my Epson XP960 from doing its own color management. To summarize, if I let the printer do the color management, things work reasonably well. If I try to do better by having the app (either Photo or Publisher) do the color management (selecting the appropriate ICC profile and Rendering Intent) and selecting; More Options -> Color Correction -> Custom -> Advanced -> No Color Adjustment, the prints are much too dark, wildly different from the originals. Does anyone have a suggestion?
