How do I insure I've disabled my printer's color management (Epson)

Adobe CC on a Mac; the printer in question is an Epson ET 8500.

 

I want Photoshop to manage the colors. Of course, I get the message "Remember to disable the printer's color management in the print setting dialog box".

 

Unfortunately, when I click on this Print Settings button:Screen Shot 2021-11-23 at 6.37.04 PM.png

 

I only get this list, and none of these have an option regarding color management.

Solving my own problem: this Printer requires an additional step on a Mac to load the printer driver. Having done that, everything is working fine now!

That's the wrong print driver, so you don't see the area to ensure it is set correctly for color management in the application. You've got a print driver from Apple, not Epson.

Download and install the correct print driver from Epson's site. Then you'll see this important area (that depending on the application, may be automatically set as seen below).

Yeah, that screenshot below’s the Apple default 'Gimp/Gutenprint' printer driver.

it CAN be useful if the printer doesn’t have a driver from the manufacturer (too old maybe) but the Gimp driver does miss some important features as Digital Dog points out here.

Another clue is : Are media names the same as previous Epson drivers you've used, i.e. is 'Premium Luster Photo Paper' mentioned or are the media types just matte or gloss? This is the proper media options list from an Epson driver

Screenshot 2021-11-19 at 11.15.20.jpg

In the System Preferences 'Print and Fax' pane, when installing the printer, it seems important to select the printer name under "use" - if you select 'Airpirint' there, OSX seems to default to the Gimp driver.

 

I hope this helps
