Can't get good prints from adobe lightroom

I bought a pixma pro 100 and can't get good prints out of Lightroom. Lightroom prints well to other printer and other software prints well to pro 100.

Re: Can't get good prints from adobe lightroom

Hi Salj,


Various factors can affect a printer's output quality.  To properly determine the cause of the image quality issues you are experiencing, please answer the following questions:


1.  What brand and type of paper is being used? (For example, Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy, Canon High Resolution Paper)  If a non-Canon brand of paper is in use, please state the manufacturer and the type of paper.


2.  What is the source of the original image?  Is the image from a digital camera, scanner photo, web page, or other source?  What is the file size of the image?


3.  Are you able to print the following sample image correctly?

Light Room does not have the same ability to control the prints as does Photo Shop. I rarely print directly from LR.

The best way, however, is to let Adobe handle the printing and not the printers driver.
