I use a lot of Epson Premium glossy 255gr/m2 paper. I have an uncalibrated Samsung flat screen 910N monitor and have found that to produce a print that matches the image in Photoshop 7 using Adobe RGB (1998)I have to dial in a magenta correction of minus 16.

This does seem a bit over the top. Epson are telling me things I already know but are unable or unwilling to say whether its due to the uncalibrated monitor or some printer related problem. I always use Epson inks. The usual printer checks only prove that the printer is working as it should.

Apart from a plus 2 brightness and an occasional plus 1 or 2 contrast correction, which would make sense with an overbright and contrasty monitor, I am happy with the final prints except the magenta setting I'm forced to use.

Anyone got any bright ideas?
