Epson Stylus Photo R300M

Epson includes a Photoshop import filter and a standalone application program to allow for PRINT Image Matching (PIM) compatibility with images made with PIM compliant digital cameras.

This is the Photoshop PRINT Image Matching file import filter. You enable it from Photoshop's FILE menu:   This import filter will only display JPEG files that have valid PIM or PIM II info embedded in the Exif header. You can select one file for import or check the "Import consecutively" option to select more than one image file. Photoshop does not retain the PIM information separately in the JPEG's header file when you import your PIM image. Instead it converts that information in the file and embeds a color space called EPSON RGB 2001. This profile supports all the PIM color advantages and enhancements. The PIM plug-in works with Photoshop 6.0 or 7.0 (not required for Photoshop CS), and Photoshop Elements 2.0, 1.0. It requires the ICC profiles for the Stylus R300 that are installed with the plug-in (Windows) or the printer driver (Macintosh).

Here's a screenshot of the Epson PrintCD application, it runs on Windows or Mac computers. It is very easy to design simple to incredibly complex CD labels with a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface.

Epson also includes their Film Factory program on the CD for Windows or Mac. This is an easy to use viewing and printing utility that lets you organize your images the same as if they were rolls of film. It has printing options to easily make standard prints, index prints, duplicates, album pages, sticker prints and combo prints. The preview window shows you thumbnails of all of your images and if they are PIM-compliant there is a little PIM icon in the upper right corner across from the file number.
