Hi there good people!
I have a calibrated workflow that starts from shooting and ends to.. web. I decided I'll start with testing my first prints with an Epson XP-442, however the results are adequately disappointing. Frustration took over and although frustration is a good start for problem solving, the amount and complexity of websites for print color management help is endless.
I've tried printing through PS, through LR, with perceptual or relative intent, with or without sharpening, tried letting PS manage the colors etc, I tried searching to find some icc for the printer (nowhere) I tried finding icc for a simple premium gloss paper, nothing. Also tried printing as AdobeRGB 16bit and converting to sRGB 8bit. Tried 7 prints of the same photo, results completely disappointing.
I'd appreciate some guiding! Below is the printed photo. The original in AdobeRGB (left) and the .. best out of all awful prints (right)..
