I have two images both the same size in inch and in dpi. the color profile of the documents are Adobe RGB (1998) on image #1 and c2 on image #2. My Epson 9890 prints the whole image #2 (c2), Image #1 (Adobe RGB 1998) prints only part of the image, a small part. What should I do to be able to print the whole image for image #1 (Adobe RGB 1998)

Thank you

As I understand it, the Stylus Pro x890 is designed to work with a separate RIP front-end for colour management. It may simply not have the processing/memory grunt to handle conversions on-board. – user2719 Jun 26 '13 at 2:12
Isn't the Stylus Pro 9890 part of their commercial workhorse series? I am more familiar with Canon, but the imagePrograf printers have large on-printer memory buffers as well as a hard drive for scratch space. I think the iPF9400 has nearly a gig of memory and a 250Gb hard drive. I can't imagine Epson's competition for that is lacking something similar... – jrista Jun 26 '13 at 3:38
@jrista - the 7000, 9000 and 11000 series come in several different flavours, each optimized for a particular industry segment. One flavour is primarily aimed at the vector imaging segment, which is ordinarily fronted by a dedicated RIP (or, indeed, a RIP farm) to take the load off of both the "creative" box and the printer, accelerating the process. They also make raster-optimized solutions that have more on-board computing, but work on an altogether less complex problem (just dithering and colour translation). – user2719 Jun 26 '13 at 4:35
