I downloaded all the ICC profiles from the Epson web site. However, when I try to print from CS3, I can pick Velvet Fine Art from the Photoshop menu, but I can't pick it from the printer menu. It's grayed out like it is not available. I went back to the Epson web-site and downloaded the ICC profile for the Velvet Fine Art paper (again), but it still doesn't show up under my printer's paper options. Any idea why? I picked a matte paper in its place, but I'm guessing that's not optimizing the printing. Thanks for the help!

What black ink do you have installed in the printer? If you have Photo Black installed, the printer will not allow you to use profiles for matte paper as the printer senses which ink is installed and won't let you "screw up". Photoshop doesn't care what profiles you use. Also, do you "let Photoshop manage color"?

You might have to do some dancing around. Might have to do "convert to..." the profile you have in mind but then "assign profile aRGB" profile to send to the printer.
As to "let Photoshop manage color" the answer is "NO". Whatever you put in that dialog, the Epson printer ignores it and the only managing of color is within the Epson dialog settings. Put to "color controls" and "adobe RGB" within the printer properties (epson dialog).

Several reasons I'm going back to Canon when they get the longevity of color dye solved.
