    If you use original cartridges, then use MonacoPROFILER, good results.

    Powerrip X

    PowerRIP X™ is a PostScript Level 3 Compatible RIP (Raster Image Processor) for Epson, Canon and HP Inkjet printers. PowerRIP X enables printers like the Stylus Photo 1400, Stylus Photo R2880 or the Pro 4880 to produce contract quality proofs with Apple’s OS X 10.6, 10.5, 10.4, 10.3, or 10.2 and popular graphic applications. Support is available for over 100 printers. All OS X 10 applications can print directly to PowerRIP X. PowerRIP X is used to make accurate prepress color proofs, presentation proofs, signage and photographic output.
    Supports OSX 10.6 thru older versions back to 10.2


    PowerRIP X, is compatible with Epson Stylus Photo 1400, do not have it, you can download a demo

    I'm sure it's been said elsewhere... but if you're going to use dye based ink for proofing be sure to use a very good resin coated proofing paper. check some of the other threads for suggestions for a particular kind. you don't want to send a proof out and have the color fade or shift significantly!

    You will just about never get a good proof using anything other than the original Genuine Epson inks. They are infinitly better than any 3rd party replacement inks.

    Also, this printer is certainly not recommended as a proofing printer, the inks have been constructed so as to make a pleasing photographic output, not for proofing. It would be wise to upgrade to something like an Epson 2880, Epson 3000 or Epson 3880. The 3880 I use gives me just about 100% exact match on my Eizo CG242W screen.

    Color proofing on Epson stylus Photo 1400

    The RIP is more expensive than the printer, these will be work:
    1.- EFI Colorproof eXpress
    2.- PowerRIP X

    Color proofing on Epson stylus Photo 1400

    Every Epson printer can be used with Efi with no problem.
    It is more expensive than any printer, but you can use version Efi freely shared in net...
    Efi is quite enough RIP for digital, offset, flexo, gravure etc.

    [No they can't, not EVERY printer Epson makes. You cannot use crappy desktop and home printers with EFI XF and there are many other printers Epson sells which are not supported by EFI.

    Please don't make such sweeping generalisations which are obviously incorrect.

    hp inkjet cartridges

    I had the same situation when comes to installing software with my [URL="http://http://www.inkjetsuperstore.com/ink-cartridges/hp-inkjet-cartridges"]hp inkjet cartridges[/URL]you just need to install the Ink jet printable CDs and DVDs, and it operate with Windows® 2000, XP, XP Professional x64 and Windows Vista™, Windows 7. You can just install the CDs required to be install in your pc.

    A free alternative would be to use ArgyllCMS for linearization and profiling but you should measure at least 2-3000 patches for a good profile.

    Definitely agreeing on this one! Availing [URL="http://www.tonerzone.com"]discount ink cartridges[/URL] may help you save a bit but notice the difference of the output its gives. Compare it to print outputs from original Epson inks and you'll see why they are priced that much..

    Mr T

    The PowerRIP X will give you excellent results with the 1400 printer. Actually better shadow colors than you can get from an Epson Stylus PRO 4900 or a 7900. The Durabrite dye colors are more accurate to swop or poffset inks than the ultrachrome pigments. Not as good for pantone but definitely better for deep shadow colors. The 1400 uses Durabrite inks that Epson says are fade resistant for abot half the time of Ultracrome inks. So if the 1400 proof does not fade for 50 years this should be long enough. Who needs to keep a proof for 100 years anyway.
