I bought an Epson 3880 after my 2880 died a few months back. I seem to be having an issue with differences between the color orange on my LCD vs my prints. I calibrate my monitors frequently with an Eye-One Display 2 and set the Luminance between 80 to 90. I print from Lightroom 4and I am using the proper profile for the paper/printer. I use Lightroom soft proofing to deal with out of gamut colors. On one print the clouds turned out more pink than orange, on another the orange went more yellow. I could go back and print some stuff I printed with the 2880 to see in there are any significant differences, but I cannot be sure the photo has not been tweaked between then and now. It seems if I could get a printed test chart as well as a jpg of the same that I could print, that may tell me where my problem lies. Any thoughts?


The pursuit of photography drives me to go places and see things I otherwise would only view through the eyes of others.
