S820D (Windows) Printer Driver

Canon S820D Color Photo Printer

The S820D's driver lets you quickly setup the printer by simply choosing the Media Type (Plain Paper, High Resolution Paper, Photo Paper Pro, Glossy Photo Paper, High Gloss Photo Film, T-Shirt Transfer, Transparency or Envelope) and the Print Quality setting (High, Standard or Draft). The optimum Quality is automatically selected depending on the Media Type but you can manually select it using the Custom option. By default the driver is set for Auto color adjustment or that can be manually selected as well. The default options produce the best quality printouts at the fastest print speed.

Clicking on the Custom button for Quality lets you manually select the printing speed from Fast to Fine. You can also select the desired Halftoning options. By default when using the High quality setting this slider is at the "2" position and I didn't notice any great improvement by using the Finest "1" setting.

Clicking on the Manual button for Color Correction lets you manually adjust the individual colors as well as the intensity. Here you can enable/disable ICM color matching and select a Print Type and Brightness setting.

Clicking on the Print Advisor button brings up this screen. It's kind of a built in FAQ to educate you on what settings are best for what media and etc.
