My experience tells me that if I have chosen the proper settings in Page Setup (which accesses the printer driver) and then set everything properly in Lightroom, I get excellent prints. Can you explain the quality loss that you are experiencing? Maybe you will have to create your profiles again since you had to reinstall the printer.
thank you for your quick answer.
I've been working with Lightroom for years, in combination with a Canon Printer and with excellent results. So yes, I´m with you: propter settings in Page Setup and everything is fine. But not with the Epson printer: same settings (like "paper:Glossy? Pearl? Professional?..", like "Quality: normal, fast...", and so on), but the quality is like I choose "Quality:fast". There is a loss of details, for example in hairs (portraits) or in grass (landscape). I'm not a Computer Beginner and had never experienced a problem like that with my Canon, and I really don't understand what's going on. I contactect the Epson Support, but they say it`s a "third party problem", because with the Epson Photo Software the quality is ok.
Profiles I will create again, thats not a problem.
Sorry, but I don't have an answer for you. My understanding is that Lightroom incorporates the printer driver supplied by the printer manufacturer. I have printed from Lightroom with an HP printer, and am now using a Canon printer. I have had excellent results from both.
