I'm using PS elements, Nikon Capture and outputting to an Epson 1290(80).

I find the quality can be excellent but prints are not consistent. Some of them have distinct color cast, usually pink/magenta. Other times there is no trace and the print is identical to what I can see on NC.

I'm wondering if it's because I'm using non Epson paper (kodak) that I don't seem to be able to control the output.

Also, I tend to find that on the good prints the quality is superb and is a close match to NC but PS El seems to show a slightly different image usually lighter and less contrast.

Anyone else having these round the houses color management problems and if so, anyone got some good tips.

Cheers
Mike
