I was used to being overwhelmed by print time options in the Epson driver (360dpi,
720dpi, 1440dpi, 2880dpi, High Speed on or off, Microweave on or off), so it was
enjoyable to see less
choices presented in the Canon driver. I'll go into more
detail on the driver software on page three
-- you basically just
choose your media type and quality and tell it to print.
You can click on the Custom buttons if you want to manually change the Fast-to-Fine (speed
vs quality) setting or enable or disable the Image Optimizer or the Photo Optimizer PRO
enhancements. Depending on the paper type and image type these "enhancements" don't always
produce the most optimum results. They are designed to smooth the pixel "jaggies" out of
low-res images or to create prints with a lot of "punch" (color, contrast, sharpness) to
them. Sometimes they are a bit too much, good images don't need them.
