i860 (Windows) Printer Driver

Canon i860 Color Photo Printer

The i860's driver lets you quickly setup the printer by simply choosing the Media Type (Plain Paper, Photo Paper Pro, Photo Paper Plus Glossy, Matte Photo Paper, High Resolution Paper, T-Shirt Transfer, Transparency or Envelope) 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 to use Windows ICM. The default options produce the best quality printouts at the fastest print speed. Other options lets you select to print in Grayscale and enable the Print Preview function.

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 which produces beautiful 4x6" prints. When making letter-size photos you can use the finer but slower "2" or "1" setting.
