I want to look at the Epson Legacy papers. I want to do some soft proofing for these papers, using some of my images. When searching the web, especially the Epson sites, I can not find where to download the ICC profiles for these papers. Does anyone know where I can get the profiles for these papers? Thanks.
You don’t mention what printer model, what operating system and which continent you live on, so hard to know where to begin. However: Epson Legacy Papers are available only in the USA and Canada. The profiles are buried deep in the North American versions of the Epson drivers for Epson professional printers. You can most easily find them by purchasing an inexpensive application called “Pacifist” which allows you to discover the full file structure of the driver applications. I have attached an example for my Epson SC-P5000 printer showing how to reach the profiles. Once there, you can copy/paste them into the Profiles folder of your operating system. However, if you are printing from Lightroom or Photoshop and have the North American version of the Epson driver for your printer installed, those applications will find the profiles without you needing to do all the above, allow you to operate with them from within the applications and do your soft-proofing.
