I'm using a Moab paper with its factory profile on an Epson SureColor 800. When I print with PS, the images come out with a pinkish/reddish tint, even though the preview looks fine. The same image printed with Epson's print layout software has perfect color, but adds a margin by defaul that I don't want and can't remove. So I would rather print from PS. All printer inks are nearly full. Any suggestions?

How are you handling Color Management when you print? Within the print dialog box in Photoshop do you have Color Handling set to Printer Manages Colors or Photoshop Manages Colors?

I am having the same problem. Epson SureColor P800 and Moab paper. When I print from Lightroom the color is fine but there is a strong magenta tint when I print from Photoshop. I choose to let Photoshop manage the color.

I cannot get the margins correct when I try to print from Lightroom. Even though I have the margins set to half an inch the most I can get is less than a quarter inch on two sides and the image is off center. The preview shows the image as being centered on the paper. I have had this problem for a long time and that is why I usually print in PS but lately I have had the magenta problem.

You say you have set Photoshop to manage color. Have you then chosen the correct ICC profile for your paper and printer combination? Have you also turned color management off in the Epson printer driver, to prevent double profiling, and ensured the media settings are set exactly as those used to produce the profile (if the profile was obtained from Moab they should be able to advise on media settings)?

Sorry - this reply ended up in my Spam folder. Yes, I am using the correct profile and yes to Photoshop manages color (since I am using the profile). Not sure how to explicitely turn off color managemnt in the Epson driver (on a Mac). Thanks for the reply.
