Did you mean: 

Canon MF644cdw "quality settings" menu

Hi, I recently bought a Canon imageCLASS MF644cdw color laser printer.

 

I have installed all the drivers and software. I am on my macbook and I go to print out an image. In the "quality" subsection there is a button for "quality settings". I click it and there is a large menu for all these difference options and I have no idea what any of them mean. I would really appreciate if someone could explain each one of these in detail and how each option for each choice will affect the final print. I am looking to print very high resolution, colored images.

 

I have attached the screenshot of the menu I am talking about for reference. I am not only looking to find the meaning of each menu option, but the meaning of each choice for each menu option (for example what does the "resolution" choice for "halftones" do as well as pattern 1 through 6 each also under "halftones").

 

Thank you so much!

Greetings,

Your manual is a great place to start:

 

Canon - imageCLASS MF746Cdw / MF745Cdw / MF743Cdw / MF741Cdw / MF644Cdw / MF642Cdw / MF641Cw - User'...

 

In this example, I searched for "Halftones" and got this result:

 

<Printer> - Canon - imageCLASS MF746Cdw / MF745Cdw / MF743Cdw / MF741Cdw / MF644Cdw / MF642Cdw / MF6...

 

and here...  Toner Save...  Toner Density:

 

<Printer> - Canon - imageCLASS MF746Cdw / MF745Cdw / MF743Cdw / MF741Cdw / MF644Cdw / MF642Cdw / MF6...

 

The manual is searchable.
