The iProof-XT and iProof-XT LF Direct Print Driver for Epson Inkjet Printers are non-PostScript drivers designed to be used with Apple's OS X 10.2.
The iProof-X Driver allows you to print high quality color images and text using ICC profiles designed specifically by iProof Systems for over 55 Epson Inkjet printers. Unlike free drivers , iProof-X contains ICC color profiles for each paper type and resolution. Shareware software may require multiple print tries to get color right.
iProof-X also comes standard with iProof's custom PPD's for all the Epson Inkjet printers supported. At the time of print, when selecting the media type and resolution, the custom ICC profiles are automatically selected for the resolution and media type you selected. The combination of iProof's custom ICC profiles and printer specific PPD's allows you to print high quality images and smooth crisp text.
It should be noted the present combination of CUPS and Apple's OS X 10.2 requires some applications to print files to PDF and then print the PDF's from the application Preview that comes as part of Apple's OS 10.2 software. The Apple Preview Ver. 1.0 can view and print multi page documents such as PDFs, tiff, jpeg, gif, pict, png and others. It is anticipated, in the near future, that Apple will be releasing an update to OS 10.2 to accommodate direct printing from all applications. Until such time as an update is available from Apple, the following applications cannot do a direct print to a CUPS based print solution and must be saved as PDF's and then printed from Preview. A partial list of these applications are as follows: QuarkXPressT, PageMakerT, FreeHandT, PhotoshopT, IllustratorT, InDesignT, Adobe AcrobatT and Apple WorksT.
Microsoft Office and Internet pages can print directly to the iProof-X driver, without going to PDF.
