Colors off when printing - Adobe Photoshop Elements

When I print a photo on plain paper the colors are fine (using Epson 785epx Standard output profile), then when I switch to Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper (as the profile as well) the output is all reddish. I'm using a Mac under OS 10.2 with a file tagged as Adobe RGB (1998) that was captured with a Canon 10D. Mind you if I print this same photo direct from the memory card slot on the printer I don't have this problem. And advice would be appreciated....

    On Windows, you also need to remember to turn off color management in the
    printer driver when you use Elements to do color management. This is done
    (in Windows) by going to the "Advanced" settings in the printer "Properties"
    dialog, choosing "ICM" color management, and selecting "None" in the
    dropdown.

    Possibly something similar exists on the Mac?

    I solved my own problem! I did some more web research and I saw that I should not select any color management in the print dialog. I had previously selected "Colorsync". Apparently selecting this option has no impact with plain paper but seriously messes things up once you select the glossy paper option.
