Changing Color Properties to Improve Coloration

Content Id: 8201317700


This feature is unavailable when the XPS printer driver is used.

The Photo Optimizer PRO function corrects colors of digital camera images or scanned images. It is specially designed to compensate for color shift, overexposure, and underexposure.

The procedure for performing Photo Optimizer PRO is as follows:

1. Open the printer driver setup window

2. Set Photo Optimizer PRO

Check the Photo Optimizer PRO check box on the Effects tab.

Normally there is no need to check the Apply Throughout Page check box.

Images within each page are optimized on an image-by-image basis.


Check the Apply Throughout Page check box when printing image data that has been processed, such as being cropped or rotated. In this case the entire page will be treated as a single image to be optimized.

3. Complete the setup

Click OK.

When you execute print, the printer corrects the photo coloring and prints out the photos.


- Photo Optimizer PRO does not function when:

Background is set in the Stamp/Background dialog box on the Page Setup tab.

Define Stamp... is selected in the Stamp/Background dialog box on the Page Setup tab, and the bitmapped stamp is configured.

- When Print a pattern for color adjustment on the Color Adjustment tab is selected, Apply Throughout Page is grayed out and cannot be set.


Depending on images, the Photo Optimizer PRO may have no discernible effect.
