Hello, i can't print with the gray gamma profile 1.8 or other bw-profiles from photoshop cc on my epson r2400, witch worked very well in my photoshop cs5. please change it back, because you are wrong, my printer does support gray gamma 1.8 and 2.2. so please make an update very soon, i need it now and it is not that difficult for you to change it back. thanks a lot

Your printer takes RGB data and can't use Grayscale profiles (which lead to multiple conversions and a loss of quality).

You need to use an RGB profile that actually matches your printer.

When I let my printer manage the colourprofiles, then i can choose grayscale profiles in the options of the printer software.
