Anyone familiar with or using ImagePrint-ColorByte software for printing? It's expensive, but I have an Epson 3880 print that's been an expensive paperweight since trying to pair it with my iMAC. I had tried several times to upload the newest Epson drivers and reinstalling the printer as well. Nothing worked and I don't even get the full menu and printing selections for dpi and paper profiles. They just don't appear in the menus.
ImagePrint was recommended to me because it circumvents the Epson drivers and controls the printing. Anyone using it with a MAC and Epson printer? Thanks for any thoughts or comments!

I have heard of the software you mentioned, but have not used it.
I am planning to uninstall my Epson 3800 which is now used via USB2, and I am going to re install it via network and get the LFP remote panel use which requires the network connection, and hope I will be happier with the monitoring capabilities via a computer. I think that the drivers have downgraded on this printer, or so it seems, since I started using Windows 7 from XP, which was about 2 years ago. I hope that the networked ability will be better.

I have used ImagePrint for about 1 year now and it is great! However, that is an expensive solution to your problem. I use Win 7 so I am not much help with your Mac. I have a friend with a Mac and Epson4900. He had problem when he first started using the 4900, related to the installation. As I remember, there was an issue with where the Mac stored some files/drivers. Ultimately, he searched UTube and found a solution. He deleted the printer and drivers and then he reloaded loaded them according to the UTube video.

I used ImagePrint a few years ago because it eliminated the then costly need to change cartridges between photo and matte black on a 7800.
It was a good product but it comes with not only a price tag but also a learning curve and periodic updates that are not necessarily free. It adds discipline to the print process but is not as simple to use as the Epson drivers.
I would not recommend buying it if the sole reason is to solve your driver problem.
There are so many people out there with iMacs and 3800s that the solution surely can be found on the web or here at Nikonians.

No, not using the software, but I have a new iMac, and an Epson 3800. It prints fine - maybe better than with the old MacBook Pro and Cine monitor. It didn't print at all initially, but Epson tech support talked me through deleting the old printer and driver, and downloading the latest software/driver. I also calibrated the iMac with the ColorMunki. If you want to tell us more about what you did, step-by-step, maybe we can sort this out.
