I am Mac user with a brand new Epson 7600. I am looking for recommendations for getting consistant results from my printer. I use mostly Epson Velvet, Watercolor, fine art, and Matte paper. BTW, I use a G5 2.5 with an Apple 23" ALuminum LCD.
Congratulations - the 7600 is an excellent printer. For matte black printing, I am hard pressed to see much difference between the 7600 and the newer 7800. Photo black is another story. The article recommended will be very helpful, but remember, you will need good profiles for your printer. Bill Atkinson prepared some top notch profiles for the 7600 - 9600 a few years ago that are truly superb, given the relative consitency between 7600's - 9600's, and in the spirit of sharing between artists, he made them available to others. You can go to his website here http://homepage.mac.com/billatkinson/FileSharing2.htmlhttp://homepage.mac.com/billatkinson/FileSharing2.html
and download his matte black profiles. He includes instructions for their use and I think you will be greatly pleased. If not, you should invest in some top quality custom profiles.
