Printing photographs

Printing photographs

The BJC-8200 is designed to reproduce the highest quality reproduction of color in photographic images, and in order to achieve this, some special settings are required in the printer driver. When the printer driver is opened, it is usually set for printing on plain paper documents created with a word processor or similar program. For special print jobs like printing a photograph on photo paper or some other special media, special printer driver settings are required.

Canon provides a variety of special media, Photo Paper Pro PR-101, Glossy Photo Paper GP-301,

High Resolution Paper HR-101, and others, for special print jobs where superior reproduction of color is required.

Printing a color photograph

What is Photo Paper Pro?

Canon Photo Paper Pro PR-101 is recommended when you need to achieve the best quality in printing photographs. Slightly thicker than High Resolution Paper HR-101, the print side of Photo Paper Pro, is the side with the glossy surface. For details

about Photo Paper Pro and other special print media, see Chapter 3.

Summary of printing photographs

Set the media in the printer.

Print the photographic image from the software application.

What is the printer driver?

The text and image data that you create with a software application cannot be printed until the printer driver has converted it into a format that the printer can understand. For details about using the printer

driver, see Chapter 2.

Memo

• If you have the optional Color Image Scanner Cartridge IS-52, you can scan a photograph that you want to

Using the Printer Driver

This chapter describes the printer driver options which are available for setting up a variety of print jobs. We will show you how to open and use the printer driver and explain its basic features.

What is a printer driver?

The text and image data file you create with a software application on a computer cannot be sent to the printer and printed as it is. The printer driver provides the required link between the software application and the printer. The printer driver converts the data created by the software application to a format that the printer can understand, and then sends it to the printer. The printer driver also provides many useful features that you can use to set up special print jobs.

Memo • Separate printer drivers are provided for Windows and the Macintosh.

Operation Flow

Here is a summary of what is presented in your hands-on introduction to the printer driver. As you read this chapter, open the printer driver and perform the steps described in the procedures so you become familiar with these tasks.

Printing a nozzle check pattern

The sensitive contact area of the print head that discharges the ink contains the nozzles. When you see faded or streaked colors and text, the nozzles may not be functioning properly. This can be caused by:

• Clogging which prevents the nozzles from discharging the ink to the paper.

• Misalignment of the print head.

These problems can be confirmed by printing a nozzle check pattern.
