Epson 2100 [2200] Profile Woes

    I'm using a colour managed workflow on Photoshop CS, MacOS X and
    printing to an Epson 2100. Up to now I have been using Epson inks and
    Epson paper and the results have been great. However, I'm now trying
    Ilford Gallerie papers. I have downloaded the ICC profiles for the
    paper (from the Ilford site) and placed them in
    Library/ColorSync/Profiles. I select these as my destination colour
    space when I use print with preview..., perceptual. I turn colour
    management off in the print dialog [same workflow as I use for Epson
    paper - just different ICC].

    The output I get is very heavily cast. So, blue/green water comes out a
    vivid gree, looks like the entire print as a magenta cast.

    I suspect I am doing something stupid, but any assistance would be much

    Best regards,

    ahem...schoolboy error.

    Apparently selecting the paper type after selecting 'no colour
    management' resets the colour management so you have to go re-set.

    Poor UI, but I should have checked. Duh

    The pink tone suggests color management being applied twice: by Photoshop
    and by the printer driver.
