Thanks for your reply!
I print from Photoshop CS3. In the printing dialogue box, the rendering intent is set to relative colorimetric and the printer is set to manage color. Should this be set to No Color Management?
I embed my images with the Adobe RGB (1998) profile... but are you saying that this profile should be removed before printing?
The printer profiles (for each different paper type) are created in the Z3100, so I'm pretty sure they are correct.
The tutorial sounds good and I'm definitely going to check it out.
The profiles you create are to be applied in Photoshop with Photoshop manages color. Printer manages color will use canned profiles, not the ones you created for the printer. The help guide should show this clearly, but maybe it doesn't. You don't have to strip out profiles at all, in fact you shouldn't. IF you are printing from Photoshop you really should use Photoshop manages color, then select the media profile you need. You can use perceptual or relative.
You'll find a movie on my mac.com site on using Application managed color and ICC profiles.
Oh yes, in the driver you must in this case choose Application manages color, if not it will double profile.
