PRINT Image Matching and Exif Print
Your EPSON Stylus Photo 2200 printer supports these innovative digital image
formats to give you the best photo prints possible:
■
PRINT Image Matching™ (both P.I.M. and P.I.M. II)
■
Exif Print
About PRINT Image Matching
EPSON’s revolutionary PRINT Image Matching (P.I.M.) technology lets your digital
camera and printer work together automatically to produce the best prints possible.
Digital camera manufacturers that support PRINT Image Matching include EPSON,
Casio,® Konica,® Kyocera,® Minolta,® Nikon,® Olympus,® Pentax,® Ricoh,® Sanyo,®
Sony,® and Toshiba.® Check with your camera’s manufacturer or visit
www.printimagematching.com to find out if PRINT Image Matching technology is
included with your camera.
With PRINT Image Matching, the digital camera manufacturer can set specific
printing options for each camera model. These options include:
■
contrast, sharpness, and brightness
■
gamma level, color space, color saturation, and noise reduction
■
shadow point, highlight point, and color balance
The camera saves this information in each JPEG or TIFF image file. Your printer—
along with EPSON Software™ Film Factory™ or the P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe®
Photoshop® (included with your printer)—uses the information to ensure the most
accurate image reproduction.
But don’t worry if your camera doesn’t include PRINT Image Matching
technology—your EPSON Stylus Photo 2200 gives great photo printing results, just
without the adjustments P.I.M.-enabled cameras may add.

Welcome!
About Exif Print
The Exif (Exchangeable Image File) Print format includes information about your
digital camera settings in JPEG/TIFF files so your printer and application can use
them to create accurate print settings. Most digital cameras store Exif Print
information such as shutter speed, metering, flash, and exposure settings, resolution,
and lens use in the JPEG/TIFF image file. Your printer—along with EPSON
Software Film Factory and the P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop—uses the
information to ensure the most accurate image reproduction.
About Your Software
Your printer CD-ROM includes all the software you need for printing. See the
Start Here sheet for installation instructions.
■
Your printer driver runs your printer and lets you control how your documents
look. You can’t print without it.
Tip: It’s a good idea to check EPSON’s support web site periodically for free
updates to your printer driver. Visit http://support.epson.com. Download
instructions are posted for your convenience.
■
Your photo software includes these great tools:
EPSON Software Film Factory is a photo management program
that lets you organize, beautify, and print your photos in a flash.
Supports PRINT Image Matching, P.I.M. II, and Exif Print.
P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop lets you retain PRINT Image Matching,
P.I.M. II, and Exif Print image quality when you import JPEG or TIFF files from
your P.I.M.-enabled digital camera. (Compatible with Photoshop 6.0 and 7.0,
and Photoshop Elements 1.0 and 2.0.)

4. If you removed the output tray, replace it on its right mounting tab, then press in
the lever and insert the left side of the tray. Release the lever into the left
mounting hole.
5. Pull the roll paper holder out of its mounting slots and remove the roll paper from
the holder.
Return the unused roll to its original package. Store your printouts in resealable
plastic bags, photo albums, or glass-covered picture frames. Keep both printed and
unused roll paper away from high temperatures, humidity, and direct sunlight.
Using PRINT Image Matching
With PRINT Image Matching, special print instructions are saved in your digital
photo files. For example, macro mode pictures might include print commands for
sharpness and clarity, while portrait mode pictures might emphasize soft focusing and
subtle flesh tones. If your digital camera supports PRINT Image Matching (P.I.M. or
P.I.M II), you can use this technology when you print with one of the following:
■
Film Factory, as described below
■
P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, as described below
Printing From Start to Finish
41
Using Film Factory
If your digital camera supports PRINT Image Matching, P.I.M. II, or Exif Print, you
can use these technologies when you print with Film Factory to ensure the most
accurate image reproduction. Printing with P.I.M. isn’t complicated, and it provides
the color corrections right from your P.I.M. image file, so you don’t have to correct
them yourself. Just leave the PRINT Image Matching box checked.
You can also use Film Factory to organize, retouch, and print non-P.I.M. and
non-Exif Print digital images.
For instructions on using Film Factory, see the on-screen Getting Started Guide in
your Film Factory program group or folder.
Using the P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop
The P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop allows you to retain the P.I.M. or Exif
Print image quality when you import JPEG or TIFF files from your P.I.M.- or Exif
Print-enabled digital camera. The P.I.M. II Plug-in works with Photoshop 7.0 and
6.0, and Photoshop Elements 1.0 and 2.0. You’ll also need to use the ICC profiles for
your printer that are installed with the plug-in (Windows) or the printer driver
(Macintosh).
Photoshop doesn’t retain the PRINT Image Matching or Exif Print information
separately in the header file when you import your P.I.M. or Exif Print image.
Instead, it converts that information in the file and embeds a color space called
EPSON RGB 2001. This profile supports all the P.I.M. color advantages and
enhancements.
You can crop, rotate, resize, work with layers, play with filters, and even make
selective color adjustments to the P.I.M. image while retaining P.I.M. quality.
However, you won’t benefit from global color adjustments (such as Auto Levels, Auto
Contrast, Auto Color, etc.). Also, if you try to use your new Photoshop file in another
P.I.M.-enabled software program, it won’t be recognized as a P.I.M. image. You need
to keep your original file if you want to take advantage of P.I.M. information in other
programs.
For instructions on using the P.I.M. II Plug-in, double-click the P.I.M. II plug-in.pdf
icon on your desktop.

Printing From Start to Finish
Note: When you select a profile for the Stylus Photo 2200, make sure you select
the profile that matches the black ink cartridge you’re using. Choose a profile
labelled PK if you’re using the Photo Black ink cartridge. If you’re using the
optional Matte Black cartridge, select a profile labelled MK.
Printing Borderless Cut Sheets
You can print your photos with no margins, extending the image all the way to the
edges of the page (not available when you’re using paper types that are compatible
with the optional Matte Black ink cartridge).
Note: For instructions on printing borderless photos on roll paper, see page 32.

profile using the test target you printed. Once you create the profile, be sure to place it
in the correct folder on your computer, as recommended by Microsoft or Apple.®
Printing With Your Custom Profile
Start Photoshop, open your image file, and make sure it is tagged with the appropriate
source profile. (See your Photoshop documentation for instructions.)
Note: We recommend either ColorMatch RGB or Adobe RGB (1998) as the
source profile for an RGB image. The color quality of your prints depend on the
quality and accuracy of the profiles you choose as the Source Space and Print
Space options. Select your settings as described below for the most consistent
results.

Solving Color Management Problems
If you selected the wrong combination of source profile, printer profile, and color
management settings, you may get unexpected results. Try these solutions:
■
If your printed image is darker than expected and has a strong green cast, you
probably turned off color management in both Photoshop and the EPSON
printer driver.
Return to the Print Preview instructions for Adobe Photoshop on page 50. Make
sure the Source Space - Document option is not set to Untagged RGB. Also
make sure you selected the correct profile for your printer in the Print Space Profile pull-down menu.
■
If your printed image is lighter than expected and has a strong red cast, you
probably turned on color management in both Photoshop and the EPSON
printer driver.
Return to the instructions on pages 53 and 55. Make sure to select No Color
Adjustment in the printer driver Advanced screen or Color Management menu
to turn off color management in your EPSON printer driver.

Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are unexpectedly light, or dots or lines are missing, you may need
to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly.
Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
This section explains how to clean the print head using the Head Cleaning utility.
You can also clean the print head by holding down the H ink button on the printer for
three seconds (when all red H ink lights are off).
Caution: When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, print quality can
decline, so turn it on at least once a month to maintain good print quality.
57
Running the Head Cleaning Utility
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing, and all the red H ink lights
are off. (If an H ink light is flashing or on, you need to replace a cartridge; see
page 59 for details.)
2. Windows: Right-click the
printer icon on your taskbar (in the lower right
corner of your screen). Select Head Cleaning.
Macintosh OS 8.6 to 9.x: Choose File > Page Setup or Print. Click the
utility button, then click the
Head Cleaning button.
Macintosh OS X: Open the Applications folder and select EPSON Printer
Utility. Select SP 2200 in the printer list, click OK, and select Head Cleaning.
3. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the print head.
Cleaning takes about 45 seconds,
during which the printer makes noise
and the green P power light and
red H ink lights flash.
Caution: Never turn off the printer
while the green P power light is
flashing, unless the printer hasn’t
moved or made noise for more than
5 minutes.
4. When the green P power light and red H ink lights stop flashing, make sure paper
is loaded in the printer and click Print nozzle check pattern. Then click Print.
The nozzle check pattern prints (see the next section for details).
5. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps or lines (as shown on page 59), click
Finish.
If the pattern has white lines, click Clean to clean the print head again.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three or four times, check the
solutions beginning on page 78.
You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight—this allows any dried ink to
soften—and then try cleaning the print head again.
58
Maintaining Your Printer
Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern
Examine the nozzle check pattern you printed. Each staggered line should be solid,
with no gaps, as shown.
■
If your printout looks okay, you’re done.
■
If you see any gaps (as shown), clean the print head again; see page 58 for
instructions.
Replacing an Ink Cartridge
When a red H ink light flashes, the indicated ink cartridge is low on ink. When an
H ink light stays on, you need to replace the indicated cartridge.
Red ink lights
When a cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if printouts
don’t look their best. If the quality doesn’t improve after cleaning and aligning the
print head, you can replace the cartridge even if all the red H ink lights are off.
You can also swap the Photo Black ink cartridge for the optional Matte Black
cartridge when you print on certain papers. Before and after swapping the cartridges,
see page 63 for guidelines and additional instructions.

Ink Cartridge Precautions
Warning: Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets
in your eyes, flush them thoroughly with water.
Caution: To avoid damaging the printer, never move the print head by hand.
You cannot print if an ink cartridge is empty. Leave the empty cartridge installed
in the printer until you have obtained a replacement. Otherwise the ink remaining
in the print head nozzles may dry out.
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start replacing a

Paper Problems
Paper doesn’t eject fully or is
wrinkled.
■
If the paper doesn’t eject fully,
you may have set the wrong
paper size. Press the m paper
button to eject the paper, then
select the correct paper size.
■
If it’s wrinkled when it ejects,
the paper may be damp or too
thin. Load new paper.
Paper sheets don’t feed correctly
or jam in the printer.
■
■
If paper doesn’t feed or multiple
pages feed, remove it from the
sheet feeder. Fan the edges of
the sheets, reload them against
the right side of the feeder, and
slide the left edge guide against
the paper, but not too tightly.
Don’t load paper above the
arrow on the left edge guide.
If paper jams, press the m paper
button. If necessary, open the
cover and remove any jammed
or torn pieces. Load new paper
and press the m paper button.
Thick paper doesn’t feed correctly
or jams in the printer.
Carefully follow the steps on
page 17 to use the manual feed slot.
80
Solving Problems
Roll paper doesn’t feed correctly
or jams in the printer.
■
Cut the end of the paper
straight across. If it’s cut
diagonally, the paper won’t feed
smoothly.
■
If the roll paper end is curled,
place the end inside a folded
sheet of paper and roll it
backwards against the curl.
■
Make sure the paper is loaded in
the roll paper feeder, not the
sheet feeder; see page 12.
■
As you load the paper, gently
hold it in the roll paper feeder
and press the z roll paper
button; don’t force the paper in.
■
Select Roll as the Source
(Windows), Roll Paper as the
Paper Source (Mac 8.6 to 9.x),
or Stylus Photo 2200(Roll
Paper) as the Format for and
Printer option (Mac OS X).
Other settings will feed too
much paper.
■
If extra paper feeds, press the
z roll paper button for three
seconds to rewind the paper all
the way (repeat if necessary). If
the m paper light is on, press the
m paper button. Reload the
paper as described on page 12.

Important Safety Instructions
Before using your printer, read these safety instructions to make sure you use it safely and effectively:
■
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on the printer.
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the printer’s label.
■
Connect all equipment to properly grounded power outlets. Avoid using outlets on the same
circuit as photocopiers or air control systems that regularly switch on and off.
■
Place the printer near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
Placez l’imprimante près d’une prise de courant où la fiche peut être débranchée facilement.
■
Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed.
■
If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure the total ampere rating of the devices
plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure the total
ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the outlet’s ampere rating.
■
Keep your printer and computer system away from potential sources of electromagnetic
interference, such as loudspeakers or cordless telephone base units.
■
Avoid locations that are subject to rapid changes in heat or humidity, shocks or vibrations, or dust.
■
Leave enough room around the printer for sufficient ventilation, leaving at least 3.9 inches
between the back of the printer and the wall.
■
Do not place the printer near a radiator or heating vent or in direct sunlight.
■
Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the printer base in all directions. The
printer will not operate properly if it is tilted or at an angle.
■
When transporting or storing the printer, don’t tilt it, stand it on its side, or turn it upside-down.
This may allow ink to leak from the ink cartridges.
■
Turn off and unplug the printer before cleaning. Clean with a damp cloth only. Do not spill liquid
on the printer.
Caution: Always turn the printer off using the P power button. Don’t switch off the power
strip or unplug the printer until the green P power light is off.
■
Do not block or cover the openings in the printer’s case or insert objects through the slots.
■
Except as specifically explained in this manual, do not attempt to service the printer yourself.
■
Unplug the printer and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
If the power cord or plug is damaged; if liquid has entered the printer; if the printer has been
dropped or the case damaged; if the printer does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change
in performance. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions.

Requirements and Notices
Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions
■
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
■
Be careful when you handle used ink cartridges; there may be ink remaining around the ink supply
port. If ink gets on your skin, wash it off with soap and water. If it gets in your eyes, flush them
immediately with water.
■
Do not put your hand inside the printer or touch a cartridge during printing.
■
Do not move the print head by hand. You may damage the printer.
■
Install the ink cartridge immediately after you remove it from its package. Leaving the cartridge
unpacked for a long time before use can result in reduced print quality.
■
Do not use an ink cartridge beyond the date printed on the cartridge carton. For best results, use
up the ink cartridges within six months of first installing them.
■
Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place.
■
Store ink cartridges with the bottom of the packaging facing down.
■
After bringing an ink cartridge inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room
temperature for at least three hours before using it.
■
Shake an ink cartridge 4 or 5 times before removing it from its package.
■
Do not shake an ink cartridge after removing it from its package; this can cause leakage.
■
Do not remove or tear the label on an ink cartridge; this can cause leakage.
■
Do not dismantle the ink cartridges or try to refill them. This could damage the print head.
■
Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This may affect normal operation and
printing.
■
If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and
store it in the same environment as the printer. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port,
making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that
the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area.
Automatic Roll Paper Cutter Safety Instructions
■
Turn off the printer before attaching or removing the automatic roll paper cutter.
■
Keep the cutter out of the reach of children.
■
Do not touch the area where the paper ejects.
■
Do not disassemble or modify the cutter.

EPSON Ink Jet Papers and Ink Cartridges
Use EPSON® paper and inks to get the same photo quality results that have earned EPSON’s printers
all of their awards! EPSON papers are specially coated to work with EPSON UltraChrome™ inks.
Here are details about just a few of EPSON’s papers, your printer’s ink cartridges, and EPSON project
ideas:
Enhanced Matte Paper
Enhanced Matte Paper is the perfect choice for photographers requiring a
heavyweight photo paper without a gloss finish. Results are highly saturated
images, which maintain excellent highlight and shadow detail.
Premium Luster Photo Paper
This instant drying RC photo paper produces vivid, lifelike images that rival
those of traditional silver halide prints. Its semigloss “E” surface and 10 mil
thickness provide a true photographic look and feel.
Velvet Fine Art Paper
With a thick 100% cotton base, this fine art paper offers an elegant, velvet
finish reminiscent of museum quality prints. Yielding brilliant colors and deep
blacks, it provides a perfect solution for fine art photography.
Load this paper only in your printer’s manual feed slot, as described in this
manual.
EPSON Ink Cartridges
For best results, always use genuine EPSON ink cartridges.
See the inside back cover for a list of cartridges available for your printer.
