Re: My Pixma Pro 100 printer prints blurred images. Please help!

Thanks a lot Sir. You were right. I was putting the shiny side towards me but the glossy side is the correct side to print on. I checked that with 13 by 19 sheets as they are also Luster type. I guess this is the case for 8.5 by 11 sheets as well. Thanks for all the help! Do you have anyother sugegstions for me while printing to get sharper and excellent quality prints?

Glad to help. Are you shooting RAW or JPEG?

What software are you printing from?

What brand/model camera?

[ Edited ]

Hello Sir,

 

I use a Nikon D5300 with 18-55mm and a 35mm lens.

 

I shoot in Raw mode but then I edit my pictures in PS/Lightroom and then I crop them to whatever size I want them to print (4x6 or 8.5 by 11 or 13 by 19) and I save them as JPEG.

 

I then print the JPEG and while printing, I do the folllowing:

 

Paper tray: Automatic sheet feeder

 

Paper type: Photo Paper Pro Luster (for 8.5 by 11 and 13 by 19)

Photo Paper Plus Glossy II (4 by 6)

 

Paper size: Letter (8.5 by 11)

4 by 6

A3 plus (for 13 by 19)

 

 

Photo size: full page

 

Fit : fill page

 

Colr mode: color

 

 

Collation: collated

 

Output quality: automatic

 

Borderless printing: on

 

This is what I do. Do you have any suggestioons in mind?

 

P.S: I dont have the XPS driver installed.

I print from Lightroom, so I am not familiar with some of the settings you have indicated. Here are some suggestions if you want to try them.

 

When editing in LR I am assuming you do all your adjustments including sharpening.

 

No need to save a JPEG if you are printing; if you want the JPEG for another reason that's fine.

 

I am posting two scrfeen shots that show the settings I am using.
