Pro9000 (Windows) Printer Driver

Canon Pixma Pro9000 Color Photo Printer

The Pro9000's driver lets you quickly setup the printer by simply choosing the Media Type, the Paper Source and the Print Quality. 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 and contrast. Here you can enable/disable Driver Matching, ICM (Standard or Adobe RGB 1998), select a Color Mode (Standard or Linear Tone) and Brightness (Light, Normal, Dark) setting.
