Printing tips for Photoshop, Lightroom
Adobe’s famous Russell Brown has created three new video tutorials meant to help get the best results when printing from Photoshop CS3 (with the 10.0.1 update) to various popular printers:
- Printing to the Epson Stylus Pro 3800
- Printing to the HP Photosmart Pro 9180
- Printing to the Canon Pro9500
Russell points out that many of steps shown in the HP & Canon tutorial steps can apply to other printers from those manufacturers. Links to the latest drivers from each manufacturer are on Russell’s site (scroll down to the Photoshop CS3 Tutorials section).
Meanwhile Lightroom PM Tom Hogarty has posted info about printing on Mac OS X Leopard with Lightroom 1.3.1. Tom talks about geeky bits like the Mac’s transition from "Tioga" printer drivers (introduced in 10.0, now unsupported) to CUPS-based drivers (now required). The upshot, says Tom, is that for proper results you should "seek out a fully Leopard compatible printer driver from the printer manufacturer."
