Are you printing on Epson paper?
Make sure to select the correct profile for the paper under Print job in LR, and the correct paper in the Epson printer driver, where you should also turn off color management.
Alternatively, set Color management to Managed by printer, and do all the settings in the printer driver,
Per: Thanks very much for your advice, as it solved the problem.
Over the past 2 days, I had modified the settings in LR and in the Epson printer preferences at least 10 times, without getting the colors to match. What a waste of expensive photo paper! Then, I followed your guidelines to "Select for the correct profile under Print job in LR, and the correct paper in the Epson printer driver, where you should also turn off color management". The results were a photo that is just great.
PB: You solved my problem. I’m telling you- I wasted at least a dozen sheets of Epson Premium Luster paper and $40 of ink over the past 2 days, trying every profile setting that made sense.
Your advice to use the Photoshop paper settings and “turn off” the color correction on the Epson side worked just great.
Much appreciated- If you were my IT support at work, I’d bring you lunch.
