Various Print Functions Various Print Functions Color Management Color Management Settings You can perform color management using the printer driver in the following three ways. Choose the best method according to the application you are using, the operating system environment, the aim of the print out and so on. Setting colors manually (Windows only) Manually adjust the color space and color tone settings used for printing. This is useful if the application does not have its own color management function. U“Setting colors manually (Windows only)” on page 31 Color management from the application (no color management) This method is for printing from applications that support color management. All color management processes are carried out by the application's color management system. This method is useful when you want to obtain the same color management results using a common application among different operating system environments. U“Color management from the application (no color management)” on page 34 Color management from the printer driver Performs color management using the operating system's color management system. Windows uses ICM and Mac uses ColorSync. This is effective in producing similar print results from different applications under the same operating systems. However, you also need an application that supports color management. U“Color management from the printer driver (ICM) (Windows)” on page 36 U“Color management by printer driver (ColorSync) (Mac)” on page 38 30 SL-D800 Series Printer Driver Operation Guide PRINT.FM (A4 size) Rev.

Perceptual Performs conversion so that a more visually natural image is produced. This feature is used when a wider gamut of color is used for image data. Relative Colorimetric 37 Performs conversion so that a set of color gamut coordinates and white point (color temperature) coordinates in original data match their corresponding print coordinates. This feature is used for many types of color matching. Absolute Colorimetric Performs conversion so that absolute color gamut coordinates are assigned to both the original and print data. Therefore, color tone adjustment is not performed on any white point (or color temperature) for the original or print data. This feature is used for special purposes such as logo color printing. SL-D800 Series Printer Driver Operation Guide PRINT.FM (A4 size) Rev. Various Print Functions F Set other items if necessary, and then print. This completes this section.

Types of Borderless Printing You can perform borderless printing using the following two methods: Auto Expand or Retain Size. For simple borderless printing, we recommend Auto Expand. To prevent the printer driver from enlarging your image, we recommend Retain Size. Auto Expand The printer driver enlarges the print data to a size slightly larger than the paper size and prints the enlarged image.

Make sure the Paper Type setting on the printer driver's Main screen matches the paper type you are printing on. Have you compared the printing result with the image on the display monitor? Since monitors and printers produce colors differently, printed colors will not always match on-screen colors perfectly. The color is not exactly the same as another printer. Colors vary depending on the printer type due to each printer's characteristics. Because inks, printer drivers, and printer profiles are developed for each printer model, the colors printed by different printer models are not exactly the same. The print is not positioned properly on the paper. Have you specified the print area? Check the print area in the settings of the application and the printer. Are the paper size settings correct? If the option selected for Paper Size in the printer driver does not match the paper size (width) loaded in the printer, the print may not be in the correct position or some of the data may be printed over the edges of the paper.
