    Print Driver Version for Ventura and SC-900
    on: March 10, 2023 at 1:33 pm

    Today I checked on a couple of other photography websites that provide forums for help with printing issues. I did this to see how many other folks may have had issues with Ventura and printer installation.  I was amazed at the number of issues reported.  After reading through many of the questions and the “responses”on those websites, I can confidently report that the quality of help provided here on the PXL is head and shoulders above the help provided elsewhere.

    Mark and Andrew know what they are talking about, they give quality advice and professional help.  I appreciate knowing I can come here and get real help.  Thanks again.

    I did not have “Managed by Printer” selected in LR Color Management.  I turned it on and it seems to have resolved most of my issues.  I find this strange.  It has been a long time since I selected “Managed by Printer” for printing in either LR or PS.  I have always used LR or PS Manages Printing.  I believe that almost every article I read about printing emphasized letting LR and PS manage printing.  Or did I miss something along the way?

    When using “Managed by Printer”  this does allow me to select “Epson Color Controls” in the Printer Settings tab and I am able to select ABW or any of the other options.  After I do that, do I THEN  still select the correct ICC paper profile in LR’s Color Management section? I assume that is the proper sequence of actions to get the desired printer settings AND the correct ICC Profile.

    I hope that is correct.  It seems clumsy compared to what I did before updating to Ventura, but if it works that is what I will do. Thanks again for your help.

    PS–I had done what Epson recommended in the link you provided, but it did not resolve my issue.

    Mark and Andrew

    I am sorry to bother you again, but I believer I still need your help getting my Mac Ventura and P-900 to work together properly.  I am attaching four screen shots of the menu’s I get when I try to print from LR to my SC-900.  In appearance, they are very different from the menu’s for the P900  I was seeing with my previous MAC with Monterey.  The biggest problem is that when I get to the print settings menu, most of the options are greyed-out and can’t be used.  For instance, I want to print in Advanced B/W mode and I am prevented from accessing that option.

    I am still not sure the print driver loaded correctly.  If it had, I believe I should be able to access of the print options.  Any ideas or observations would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ron
