iP5200 (Windows) Printer Driver

The iP5200's driver lets you quickly setup the printer by simply choosing the Media Type (Plain Paper, Photo Paper Pro, Photo Paper Plus Glossy, Photo Paper Plus Double Sided, Glossy Photo Paper, Matte Photo Paper, High Resolution Paper, T-Shirt Transfer, Transparency, Envelope or Other Photo Paper), the Paper Source (Paper Feed Switch, Auto Sheet Feeder, Cassette or Paper Allocation [if Paper Allocation is selected, the printer switches the paper feed automatically according to the settings that you manually enter]) and the Print Quality setting (High, Standard, Draft or Custom). 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.

The "Grayscale Printing" box if checked will cause a color image to be printed in grayscale. The "Preview before printing" box will enable the Print Preview feature.

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 Standard quality setting this slider is at the "3" position, the High quality setting is "2" and you can manually select "1" by clicking on the Custom button. The lower the number, the longer the print time -- but on this printer even printing with the "1" setting was incredibly fast.

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 (Auto, Photo, Graphic, None) and Brightness (Light, Normal, Dark) setting.

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