Printing
The following software is included in the CD-ROM provided with your printer.
This section describes how to use this software to print images.
For details on other procedures, see the [Help] menu accompanying each
software application.
• ImageBrowser
This software is used to organize and manipulate image taken with digital
cameras, on your computer. You can organize your images then edit and print
them in an easy series of operations.
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.
