The other driver settings settings include Color Controls, these can be accessed by clicking on the Advanced tab and then clicking on the Settings button. Image adjustments can be made here, but it would be better to make any tonal adjustments in an image editing application.
The one section that I did experiment with was the Colour Mode settings, these include; Adobe RGB, Epson Standard and Epson Vivid. With the Adobe and Standard settings you also have the option to choose a Gamma setting of either 2.2. or 1.8. On my test I found the 1.8 produced better looking prints although most image editing applications in Windows work with the 2.2 Gamma setting.
The Adobe RGB 2.2 print looks the best setting in this test, although for most images the Epson Standard 1.8 will produce great results. If you want to use a custom profile then you must select Photoshop Manages colours and select a profile from the drop down list. Then from the Printer Properties select ICM and tick the box which says “Off (no colour adjustment)” this prevents the printer driver from also applying a profile – double profiling produces muddy looking colour prints.
