Really weird printing problem

Hi there,

I'm printing using an Epson R2400, all epson ink, Epson velvet fine art paper, current drivers and aperture.

I always do a test proof on 8.5 x 11 before doing a 13 x 19 print and record all my settings on the back of the 8.5 x 11...it's a great system.

Last night, I did a test proof - worked great. I printed the full size image and, although the colours are good, there's a large yellow dot where I've done some retouching of the image. No matter what I do, I cannot get a print without that dot. The really frustrating part is that it only appears on the large 13 x 19 print so I use up a lot of ink and paper just trying to get a good print...

I finally just created at TIFF and printed from there, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue with Apple Aperture and printing...

Any insight would be helpful.
