The Spyder 3 created a monitor profile which I can select under the 'Device to Simulate' box in the View -> Proof Setup -> Custom... menu. Will I ever use this profile when I want to print? I find this possibly the most confusing part...

Yes, at least it's consistently wrong, so it is of some use once you get used to itKevgermany wrote:The Epson preview gives a lovely magenta looking image with these settings (and it should). Fully agree with Bez, but a further check is that if the preview image isn't strongly magenta, something's wrong - probably the ICM/OFF is set wrongly.

dtschorn wrote:Thank you all for the input. I ended up printing 2 sheets of 9 postcard-sized photos. The colors were very close in all of them, with the most saturated photos being only slightly more saturated than what I saw on the monitor. I will also say that I highly recommend the R1900, setup was a breeze, and the Epson paper profiles seems to be pretty bang on.
I think these postcard sized photos will also be a good thing just to have sitting around for people to take with them, no waste!
