Print Like A Pro! (Cont'd)


FIGURE 8

Figure 8
In the next menu (Figure 8), under Color Management, choose No Color Adjustment. This is critical because it tells your printer's software not to second-guess the instructions that are coming from your imaging software. In other words, not to make any further adjustments to the adjustments already made by your imaging software.

After you click on OK, you'll be brought back to the print menu box again (Figure 9). Click on Print and soon a great image will roll out.

You may have noticed (Figures 5 & 8) that I've selected Speed or High Speed, and a moderate printer resolution of 1440 dpi (on most printers, using the Speed setting will automatically drop the resolution). I even choose 720 dpi on some printers if that's an option. Using the printer's highest resolution (like 2880 dpi or more) takes longer, consumes more ink, and you won't see any difference in quality with your naked eye when viewing the print at normal distance. You may want to run the same print at each setting and then judge for yourself.
