Print From Your Computer : Windows Printing

Select Basic Options
Click the Main tab on the top of the printer settings window to select your basic print options.
1.
Select the Media Type setting that matches the paper you loaded. If the Media Type setting you want to use is unavailable, you may need to select a different Ink option.
Note:
The available media types vary according to the type of black ink currently selected. To avoid changing black ink more often than necessary, you can set the type of black ink that is available by default to the one you usually use.
2.
Select a Color setting for your document or photo.
Select Color for any type of photographic printing.
Select Advanced B&W Photo for printing black-and-white photos with this unique printer technology. (For paper types that don’t support this option, such as plain paper, print black-and-white photos with the Color setting.)
3.
For the Print Quality setting, select Speed, Quality, or Max Quality, or select Quality Options and choose the quality from the slider.
Quality Options
Use the Speed/Quality slider to set the desired quality level. Available print quality settings depend on the selected Media Type setting.
LEVEL 1: for fast printing with draft quality
LEVEL 2: for everyday text and image printing
LEVEL 3: for photos and graphics with good print quality and speed
LEVEL 4: for photos and graphics with high print quality and slower speed
LEVEL 5: for the best print quality and slowest print speed (recommended for canvas media)
Select from the following additional options, then click OK.
High Speed for fast, bidirectional printing at lower quality.
Edge Smoothing to improve the quality of low-resolution images.
Finest Detail for sharper edges on vector-based data including text, graphics, and line art. (This setting does not affect photographs.)
4.
Mode settings
EPSON Standard (sRGB) increases the contrast in images. Click the Advanced button to use advanced color controls.
Adobe RGB matches image colors to the Adobe RGB color standard. Use this setting if your source file was captured in Adobe RGB. Click the Advanced button to use advanced color controls.
PhotoEnhance lets you choose from various Scene Correction settings to automatically analyze your photos and, if necessary, adjusts the brightness, contrast, and saturation.
Note:
PhotoEnhance uses a sophisticated face recognition technology to optimize photos that include faces. For this to work, both eyes and the nose must be visible in the subject’s face. If your photo includes a face with an intentional color cast, such as a bronze statue, you may want to turn off PhotoEnhance to retain the special color effects.
ICM: automatically adjusts colors based on the printer’s ICC profile and the selected Media Type setting, using the Image Color Matching system. Click the Advanced button to choose the input profile and other settings as shown below:
Note:
In most cases, you will get better results by applying color management in your application, rather than in the printer driver.
Off (No Color Adjustment): disables color management in the printer driver for a color-managed workflow with ICC profiles in ICC-compliant applications, such as Adobe® Photoshop®.
5.
Select the Source setting that matches the paper feeding method you are using.
Source settings
Sheet: for sheets of paper loaded in the sheet feeder

Select the paper Size setting for the paper sheets you loaded.
If you loaded roll paper, create a custom paper size. Select User Defined in the Size menu, then click the User Defined button. Type a name for your custom size. For the Paper Width, enter 12.95 for Super B-size rolls. For the Paper Height enter the desired length up to 44 inches. Click Save, click OK, then select your custom paper size in the Size menu.
Note:
For roll paper, make sure the maximum width of your photo is 13 inches to fit in the width of your roll paper (set the margins to 0 in your application software).

To print borderless photos, select Borderless, if available.
To adjust the amount of image expansion when printing borderless photos, click the Expansion button and adjust the Borderless Expansion slider to Min, Mid, or Max.
