I am using Mac OS 10.6.8 with Photoshop Extended CS5 12.0.4 and printing to Epson Stylus Photo R1800 printer v. 8.6.0. The print command does not allow me to select the print settings. This works perfectly in Photoshop CS4. I would like it to print correctly from CS 5 too. Please help! Thank you. Ellie

In the print dialogue window, under Color Management, tick Document. Then, under Color Handling, select Photoshop Manages Color (instead of Printer Manages Color). That should give you access to the Print Settings in the Print dialog box.

that's great Jorge, thanks so much for the solution. By making that change once I can now access print settings with either Phot. mang. colors or Printer mang selected under the color handling tab. The only thing that's still missing is the controls in Advanced Color Settings / Print Settings with either Phot. mang. colors or Printer mang selected. This generic dialog box is what I get, any suggestions...

Are you sure that's the Epson driver and not the GIMP/Gutenprint driver?
