I chose the Epson Stylus CX660 because of the permanent dye ink. (And the Scanner/copier and front camera card ports) This is by no means a professional demand. I am currently using it to copy heritage photos for scrapbooking without going through my PC. Yes, I'm a little obtuse here. My sepia photos are coming out with more magenta tint than I want. It's not bad, just noticeable to me. Do I have to scan through the PC to change the color level? This printer does most of what I need to do independently of the PC, except make color adjustment easy. I can't find anything in the online guide. --jestle

When you go to print a document, look for the "main" tab. On the lower right, you should see a button marked "advanced". In there, you will have an option to adjust your colours. Simply put the magenta slider at -20%...and see if you get better results.

Good Luck!!

Just a thought but what inks/cartridges are you using?

If you're looking for permanence it'd be worth checking that you're using something that isn't going to fade to nothing in a few months, or a year.

Are you using an EPSON original cartridges or an OEM cartridge in your CX6600?

For original cartridge of magenta, you can choose another paper and test again.

But for a compatible cartridge of magenta, I think it would be better to change another brand of cartridge.

If you are using a CIS for your Cx6600, you can add 20% distilled water into your magenta, then the color of your sepia photos may be better.
