I have an Epson Stylus Photo R800, and since going to snow leopard the prints are all at low resolution . A pale grey. Nothing has changed with V 2.2. Also the supplied print Utility does not work. I have gone back to Epson's Leopard driver and get good prints,the print utility works, but slow printing response

I used this solution for the R1800 as well. I switch between Leopard and Snow Leopard with Carbon Copy Cloner so that I have the best of both worlds without the need to buy a new printer.
