I use a iMac with photoshop. I calibrate my monitor with Eye-one and I use Imageprint as my RIP. However, I still get a red cast in my color photos on some colors. Any help in steps I should take to sort out the problem? Could it be that the printer just doesn't have a Gamut as big as the monitor or vice versa? Please help if you can. Thanks.

The gamut of the monitor in it's shape and capacity is quite a bit different than a print. Many printers today have a gamut the exceeds some of the colour axis of the monitor gamut, but not the entire shape of it's locus.

IF the yellows are going red it's probably the profiles attempt to correct for a bright yellow that is quite metameric, and the underlying paper white has a lot of optical brighteners.
Adding red eliminates the too cyan look of the yellow according to the profile. It may or may not be the right profile for this calibration state of both the printer and monitor.

Thanks. I took a look at all the profiles on ColorThink. My monitor and Adobe RGB 1998 have a very close gamut profile. However, the printer/paper profile falls short, especially in the red range. Could it be that printer prints more red in that area because it doesn't have the range to be more subtle?
