Help with Printing from LRC - Ventura - Missing options to turn off Color Management

Hello, I'd love any help anybody can provide. Will try to be brief.

 

Printing from LRC. Using papers with custom profiles. However in my print dialogue box, there is no "Printer Options" and therefore no "Printer Settings" and therefore I can't turn off color management in the printer. So I think when I print from LRC it is double profiling. If I use "Managed by Printer" it comes out better, but I'd much prefer to use the proper paper profiles.

 

I'm using Epson ET-8550 printer. I'm including a scree shot of my print diaologe screen, where you can see there is no "Printer Options". Is this a Ventura issue? Any workarounds? Thanks!

It’s very likely that the Mac is using the generic/AirPrint printer driver for the Epson printer. This driver may not have advanced features like color management options. To resolve this, go to the Epson web site and make sure you download and install the full Epson printer driver for that model that is compatible with macOS 13.

I think you have to get to the "Advanced" controls in the printer's "Driver".   To get there with my printer I have to find the Properties button from the Page Setup button in the Print module.  This video might help:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkrEglgOX8Y

Thanks. Actually got help from Red River Paper and figured it out. Ventura defaulted to Airprint, which is only obvious when looking at the printer driver number, which was 3. I reinstalled the printer driver and deleted the old profile and no the printer options dialogue shows up.

I want to thank Conrad and others on this post for their answers to an extremely frustrating situation. I loved my new Epson ET 8550 printer when I bought it a year ago, but could never figure out why I was not able to turn off color management. I was aware that I was not getting the correct printer settings in light room but  was not savvy enough to realize that the settings came with the printer driver. Three calls to Epson did not help because they either could not understand that it was a problem or did not have the answer. I told them my printer driver was V. 3 which was a big tip off. I then called Adobe and after spending an hour on the phone with the light room advisor and her supervisor, they concluded that the warning "when selecting a custom profile, remember to turn off color management in the print dialogue" did not really mean anything, and could just be ignored.(Pretty shocking).  Finally, I noticed that after several more download attempts from Epson, my printer driver now showed a different version, 13.05.  That got me pretty excited and I thought it last my Odyssey was finished. But alas, no change in the Lightroom print settings.  Then it occured to me  that maybe I had better restart my computer. Finally, success! Now I can manage my color with light room instead of my Epson printer. Thanks again for all your help.   Richard

I got back to printing from Lightroom Classic and Photoshop using my custom paper profiles as I did up to my update to macOS14 Sonoma.

I removed the print queue by uninstalling my SC-P800 (removing it) and then reinstalling it. All with my iMac and printer on and connected to the internet

i then downloaded all the drivers available specifically for OS 14 including those with utilities combo package and installed them.

I now get the old print dialog with the settings where I can turn off color matching (grayed out)  and my prints matching my screen.
