I recently purchased an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 printer and when I attempt to print through Photoshop (CS 5.1) all of my photos turn out VERY dark and there is no color pop in the prints. When I print the same photo using my computers 'preview' the colors are much better. I have reviewed many of the discussion boards and cannot seem to get my photos to print with great color! Help!!!!

Make sure you have Photoshop managing colors, and have selected the correct profile for your printer and paper.

On MacOS 10.9, you may need updates from Epson, because their drivers have a LOT of bugs.

I have photoshop managing colors and have selected the righ profile for my paper. I am running on Mac OS 1.6.8. I really need help with this! Epsom is indicating it is an Adobe issue and you are indicating it is with Epson. I have to tend to believe the issue lies in my Photoshop program as the print was fine when I printed from the preview screen outside of the Photoshop program.

Preview doesn't color manage, and uses a completely different print path.
