Re: Cannot set print for "fine" quality for most photos

Have not.  Will try to do so.  At work now.  Will try when I get home.  Would the print dialogue box  be an Apple box or a Canon box?

It's actually both. Its the Mac version of the Canon printer driver dialgue box. The Windows version is entirely different.

 

If you had Lightroom or Photoshop I would suggest you try the Canon Print Studio Pro plugin. But it only works woth LR, PS and Canon's Digital Photo Professional software.

Re: Cannot set print for "fine" quality for most photos

Think I have found a solution.  I reinstalled the Pixma Pro-100 driver.  Still could not print fine qualty photo with the Canon software (Image Garden).  Could not change the preset choices from "fast on plain paper and fine on plain paper"  Went back to the MAC Photo program and tried to print from there.  On the printing box the presets were "fast on plain paper" and "fine on plain paper".  Again,  could not change  even when photo paper was the media chosen.  Then I noticed a box with no title in the middle of the printing box with the word "layout".  I clicked and found I had some options.  I clicked down to "quality and media".  That produced a new box below entitled  "print quality".  I chose :"high".  Clicked print and got a beautiful fine print (albeit a little darker thant the photo on the computer).  I went back to Image Garden and realized I would be getting the same printer box.  Changed "laywout" to "quality and media".  Allowed me to choose high quality. Maybe you jr, tried to tell me that before.  Thanks for your help.

My Image Garden is a very limited program. You are using the correct approach with Photos.
