If I get the same results regardless of what it says in elements
(remove profile, use srgb,use adobe rgb) in the little drop down box
in elements... I guess the printner driver is doing it....
Didn't know r220 was dye or r2400 was pigment
I don't know how to install profiles
never thought about them at all

As Paul Stenquist said, are you setting the software to control the
color output or depending on the printer's driver? I looked on the
Red River site and it appears they don't have an ICC profile for the
R220, but they do for the R2400. Would be a good idea to install he
one for the R2400 and use that when printing from that printer.
Just be sure that if you use Elements to control the output you set
the printer driver to not control the output results.
Also, I believe the R220 uses dye based inks while the R2400 inks
are pigment based. That could be a reason for the prints looking a

Are you printing with "PS Elements controls printing" or using the
printer's color controls? To get accurate results you need to use
the former. Accurate profiles are also an issue. Can you choose a
paper for which ics profiles for your printers are available? That
makes all the difference.

I did a little test - took one file and printed it out three times
on my R220 and three times on my R2400, changing the profile from
SGRBto ADobe RGB, to Remove profile. within the same printer run,
they all look identical to me... but the R2400 prints are simply
overall lighter than the R220. Now the R220 only has one black
cartridge and the r2400 has 3, as most of you probably know. But
you switch out the main Black one when you use matte paper.
I used 50lb Red river stock for this, double sided matte with the
matte cartridge in , of course. On the R220 the setting was matte
paper heavy weight best photo and photo enhanced. On the R2400
there was a setting choice for double sided matte so I used that.
I haven't got any Red River specific profiles - and from what I'm
seeing I don't think it matters...
Looks like either or both printers are simply overriding whatever
is stored in the file or it really doesn't matter what profiel one
uses and it is all BS, or
both printers are using a profile that is the samebecause I'm in
Photoshop Elements 10 when i print and there is something in THAT
which is controlling it.
I like some of thecalendar pages as they are on the r220 better
than the r2400 and vice versabut it would be nice not to have to
fiddle with the files every time I print one calendar page.
off to my daily nap now
