Hi-Ti 640DL (commercial mini-lab model)

Note that all driver and application software is for Windows 98, Me, 2000 and XP, there is no Macintosh OS support at this time. Page one of the print driver has options for selecting the media type, setting the orientation, printing 2-inch ID photos, number of copies, enabling the Preview function and optionally adding a visible watermark (Magic coating) over the picture.

Page two lets you calibrate the printer, set a specific skin tone (Yellow, White or Black), enable Windows color management or disable color preferences altogether.

Page three displays the printer's firmware version, serial number and release date. It also has a hyperlink for visiting HiTi's web site for newer firmware or printer drivers.

This is the Preview screen, if you check the "Run Preview" box on the first page of the driver then this screen comes up before each picture is printed. (In unattended mode you would NOT want to use the preview option for obvious reasons.) From here you see "visually" exactly how your picture is going to look when printed. You can alter the brightness, contrast or sharpness as well as change the scaling and then re-center the picture.

Clicking on the "Mirabella" button from the Preview screen will bring up this quick selection window. You are shown 9 variations of your picture, each has a slightly different color or contrast - just pick the one that looks best and that's how your print will come out. Doesn't get any easier than that.

  delivers professional quality results with an easy to use User Interface. It allows you to track your customer's job and its costs, queue photos for unattended printing and create personalized calendars and greeting cards. With creative color toning buttons; options for adjusting saturation, contrast, sharpness, brightness, hues. Using PhotoDesiree is as simple as: Select desired image files, number of prints, output media, adjust colors/rotate/resize (if needed) and then drag to the Print Queue.

  lets you adjust the image's color, brightness, contrast, sharpness and gamma.   You can scale the image up or down as desired and even color tone the entire image with the preset buttons. And as you can see from this frame, it's easy to add one of the pre-defined photo borders.

It's easy to add a calendar or text anywhere in the image desired. Shown here is the text entry window with all of its size, font and color options.

Here's a 4x6" print using one of the special borders. Along the right break-off tab you can print the customer's name, photo number and job ID number to keep track of the customer's prints or batch jobs across several printers.

This is an actual 4x6" borderless print, the two end tabs are ready to be easily removed, just bend them twice and they seperate cleanly. Even though this is a good scan it still doesn't do it justice, these prints are just as colorful as the best film print you ever had made. The paper is thick, not flimsy and it feels like a "photo" with a nice glossy surface and comes out completely dry.

This is the 4x2x4 sticker paper. All of these small photos peel off and have a self- adhesive backing to let you stick them wherever you want. Kids love them for school notebooks and such. They're also perfect for ID badges too.
