[filmscanners] Epson Printing Post Scanning

I am quite new at scanning/digital imaging.  I am now to the point where I am
trying to learn the intricacies of getting a good Epson Inkjet Print using an
870 and a custom profile for Epson inks and papers.  First the scanning info
and then the question......

I am using a Canon FS4000 and VueScan with Photoshop 6.1.  I am scanning at
4000 ppi and using Vuescan to do 8x passes generally to keep noise to a
minimum and bring out good shadow detail......and the scans look good in
terms of image quality.

I have just started the printing process and despite the fact that I am
printing at 1440 and at highest pint quality the image output, while it looks
fairly good, still looks to my eye sort of 'inkjetty'.  When I look more
carefully....and I don't have too amny images just yet, but what I do have
looks 'photographic' in the sharp and in-focus areas but what I call more
'inkjetty' in the lighter and more out of focus areas.  I find it quite
distracting and detracting from the image.

Though I will also have a try at posting to the inkjet list, I am posting
here because I am somewhat suspect that the problem may not be the printer or
its settings.  I am suspicious that I may be seeing grain or 'dye pools'  or
whatever they should be called or perhaps grain aliasing.  How can I be sure.
 What are the characteristics of this and how can I alter it or see if it is
this or a limitation of my printer/expectations.  I notice that Viewscan has
a grain reduction filter...is this worthwhile to try or does it soften the
image to much.  What can be done inPhotoshop etc.....I guess the first step
is diagnosis.  Though I find it to be  more disturbing in the printed image,
when I go back and look at  the scan at 100% in PS I can see the grainy look
to areas of the picture and suspect this is what may be printing.

Any help or ways to differentiate the possiblities will be appreciated.
