Printing
ImageBrowser is an application included on the Canon CP Printer Solution
Disk. This application makes it easy to print. This section describes how to
use ImageBrowser to print images with the printer.
Before printing, verify that the printer is on, and that the printer is properly
connected to your computer with a USB cable.
Printers and computer displays use different color reproduction methods,
and lighting conditions and display settings affect the appearance of colors
on your computer’s display. Therefore, the colors in prints may differ from
what you see on the screen. This is not a printer malfunction.
For information on how to install ImageBrowser, see the Printer User Guide.

Merging Images to Print a Panorama
You can create panoramic images by merging multiple images, and then

Printing Part of an Image (Trimming)
You can select and then print a portion of an image (trimming).
This is useful when you only want to print part of an image, or if the part you
are most interested in is not at the center of the image.
• You can print portions of images selected from any type of layout.
• The length-to-width ratio cannot be modified if you select “Photo printer
standard printing” in the Layout Options window, and then specify
“Borderless”, or if you select “Photo printer multiple printing”. Also,
because a 1 - 3 mm border is trimmed from the image during printing, we

the image you want to print.

prints are clearer.
