So.... no adjustments were made ... that makes since but what profile did you attach to the image Source or the epson printer profile for that paper? I am interested in a way to calibrate but afraid Aperture has its own system that is not written or explained. For example I just verifyied a problem of exporting an image with a costco icc profile attaced and it looks awful. As for your solution I always thought that color charts for profiling should be printed with no profiles attached not sure if aperture can do that. Wish they would produce a white paper or have a color expert write one for them. Clarification is needed. Cheers

When you select "Print" in Aperture, you get an Aperture print window with the option to select a printing profile, or to leave it "printer managed", the LATTER BEING THE DEFAULT; leave it there.
When you click on "Print" in that window, the Apple print window opens. The second option below the number of prints choice, "Clor Matching" is another place where printing profile choices can be made; to print the colour chart which is to be scanned, you choose the Epson colour controls.
With these choices you are at default level on the profile scale, and you insert the profile thus created either in the Aperture "Print" window, in which case this "Color Matching" option in the Apple "Print" window is greyed out and inoperable, or you can insert the new profile in the Colorsynch option of the"Color Matching" option of Apple "Print" window.
I hope this clarifies your question.
