Thread: Good photo printing program?
01-28-2007, 03:25 AM #1Good photo printing program?
I did some searching and I didnt really find what I was looking for.
Ok so heres the deal.
I have canon photo printer and I am looking for a program that will help me out with printing. I use photoshop and lightroom, but the problem is that I cant really figure out photoshop and Lightroom does not give me the option of printing on photo paper so they turn out pretty low quality. The only program that gives me that option is iphoto and I am trying to stay away from that. Are there any programs that y'all use that really give you good results for printing? Im trying to get some freeware so I dont have to pay.

You could try printing from preview, I do that a lot when I need to print things quick. I think there is an advanced tab in the print window so you should be able to change the paper type, quality, and/or print settings in that.

Doesn't the Printer Setup Utility dialogue box give you access to your Canon printer model settings? I have an Epson Stylus Photo 820 and an HP LaserJet 1300 and I can tweak the print settings for each printer I use if I want to.

Photoshop is the BEST photo printing program I have ever used, bar none. With its own built in color management system, it delivers truer results than anything I have used before.
To figure out how to use this to best advantage, I would recommend one of Scott Kelby's excellent "The Photoshop CSx Book for Digital Photographers". There are variants of this book for CS, CS2, Elements 2, Elements 3, Elements 4 and I even saw one for Elements 5 last night at the book store.
These books are all basically "recipes" for how to do all sorts of things well in Photoshop. There is an excellent section in at least the CS and CS2 books, which I have, on how to print to devastatingly good effect. The books aren't cheap (around $35) but well worth it... particularly if you already have Photoshop, which you do.My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade

If you got any install CDs, check on those for similar software, otherwise the Canon site may have it available.

I've never installed or used the Easy Photoprint software. Might give it a try just to have something to compare.64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.
Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
