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.
Clicking on the Instructions button brings up an onscreen user guide. It describes the
various driver settings, the bundled printing software and the basics of color management.
The Page Layout options let you select the Page Size (see below), Orientation (portrait or landscape), Printing Type (normal-size, fit-to-page, scaled, page layout printing, poster, banner), borderless printing with an adjustable amount of extension, duplex printing, number of copies, printing order and collate options.
The Stamp/Background page lets you select an overlay stamp to print on your pages. Choose from Draft, Important, Confidential, Secret or define your own. You may also select a background image.
