May 2008 Epson have also launched a new Photoshop Plug in, this is available as a free download and will support a limited number of previous Epson printers (Epson Stylus Photo 1400, R1800, R1900, R2400, R2880 and Stylus Pro 3800). The new Epson Print Plug-In will be available as a free download from Epson Europe. It supports Mac OS 10.4.3 – 10.4.10 (Tiger), Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) and Windows XP SP2 and Vista.

23rd May 2008 – Imaging specialist Epson has today launched an innovative new print plug-in for the Adobe Photoshop family of products that provides users with enhanced functionality and flexibility, making colour-managed printing quicker and easier. Engineered specifically for the popular Adobe Photoshop CS and Elements products, Epson designed the software to meet the needs of the users of its Stylus Pro 3800 and its A3+ printers, including the new Epson Stylus Photo R2880.Mark Robinson, Senior Product Manager at Epson UK commented: “The new Epson plug-in provides an invaluable tool for the keen photographer, allowing them to increase their efficiency when printing a wide variety of projects.

“As an independent resource, the Epson Print Plug-In allows users to switch easily between its interface and Photoshop. This allows them to add images to the multi-image print easily and keep temporary images for reprint even if the plug-in window is closed. For many users, this functionality is highly valuable and could significantly enhance productivity.”

The Epson interface splits the printing workflow into three steps; image selection, layout selection/definition and printer settings and previewing, making the printing process simple and efficient. The window of each step is modular and can be minimised to optimise space on-screen.

The layout function automates the layout process, allowing users to select from three layout types; template, index and free layout, which can be arranged over multiple pages. Over 170 templates, ranging from credit card sizes to A2 are available as standard and users can even create custom templates and save them for regular use. Once the layout is selected, images are simply dragged and dropped into the template and can even be cropped as needed.

Colour management can be automated for both direct colour management using the printer driver, and ICC profile-based colour management. Users can also specify their own ICC profiles for specific print media. The preview function provides a fast and easy way to proof the final print layout before printing begins.

Epson Stylus Photo 1400 key features summary:

The Epson Stylus Photo 1400 features fast connectivity, six individual ink cartridges with Epson Claria Photographic Ink and advanced Epson imaging technologies.  It prints high-quality, glossy photos up to A3+.

a3 plus stylus photo 14008 January 2007 – Epson has launched a new A3+ six-colour photo printer, featuring Claria Photographic Ink for long lasting, borderless premium quality photo prints. The Stylus Photo 1400 is the successor to the renowned Epson Stylus Photo 1290s and offers more durable photos, superior image quality and faster printing speeds. It also features six individual ink cartridges, so only the colour that is used needs to be replaced. Direct printing onto CD and DVD faces is included for personalised archiving and easy identification of CD content.  Connectivity support includes Pictbridge, USB 2.0 and an optional Wireless Ethernet Print server.

The Stylus Photo 1400 is equipped with Epson’s advanced Micro Piezo™ print head technology that delivers sharp borderless prints from 10x15cm up to A3+. It also incorporates Epson’s improved Advanced Variable-Sized Droplet Technology (Advanced VSDT) which provides more flexible ink droplet sizes and more accurate placement of the droplets.  Together with six-colour printing, the result is even more detail where light colour and softer tones are required.

The Stylus Photo 1400 driver also supports Adobe RGB for a wide colour gamut.  Additional colour output modes include ‘Epson Vivid’ ideal for presentations and graphs and ‘Epson Standard’ for faithful reproduction of sRGB images.  In addition, the Epson Stylus Photo 1400 allows advanced colour management with out-of-the-box ICC profiles for the Epson media range.

Epson PhotoEnhance automatically detects and optimises images according to subject type, for example, portraits, landscapes and sky lines. In addition it analyses and improves skin tones, colour casts or light exposure.  The end result is optimum image quality regardless of experience in photo manipulation.

About Epson Claria Photographic Ink

The name “Claria” is derived from the term clarity and is specifically denoted as Photographic Ink to express Epson’s confidence in its rich definition and excellent durability. When combined with Epson Glossy Photo Paper, Epson Claria Photographic Ink delivers superior quality glossy prints of the highest levels of durability.  The six-colour ink set includes cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan and light magenta. It offers 200 years of durability and archivability in album storage, family photos can be preserved and shared for generations to come.

With Epson Claria Photographic Ink the colouring agents’ molecules have a stronger and more stable structure, making them more resistant to the fading effects of light and unstable gasses in the atmosphere. The result is that Epson photo prints retain their beauty under a wide range of conditions.

4 Epson recommends that you use genuine Epson ink cartridges. The use of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage. Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use and temperature. For print quality, a small amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the “Replace cartridge” indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. See for more information about cartridges.
