Pixma 4200 on mac - can't find print options

Have just installed the Pixma 4200 on my iMac with new drivers from canon. It will print, but I can not find where to change options like paper type or print quality etc. Especially when printing from Photoshop.
On Pc I was able to allocate specific things for photo printing, but now mac just does not have the options. Or if it does, I do not know where to change them. Have looked everywhere...

    Many thanks. The video and your tips were most helpful.


    Not sure which profiles I should be using, but that's not what I was mainly worried about. You have shown me what Canon and Mac could not.


    Cheers

    Actually... Those things don't work when you are networking the printer. Unfortunately.
    But if I plug it straight in, it's fine.
    *sigh*


    But thanks again.

There is a nice video here: http://www.adobe.com/designcenter/video_workshop/?id=vid0015
(for photoshop printing, which has more selections regarding paper type, etc. ) Otherwise when you do commmand-P or Print, a dialog box comes up with pull-down menus. Check the third pull down menu (under presets) and it will let you choose lots of stuff

You can download the drivers off the Canon website. My fiance' has a Pixma 4200 and I was able to download the driver there a few months ago.

Printer Sharing


Hi jammin dave,

There are certainly known issues with sharing a printer installed on an XP machine to a Vista machine. First question is whether you have Windows Live OneCare installed. This in itself causes known sharing problems.

Canon Pixma 4200 does not print double-sided with Mac


First, I'd strongly suggest you update your drivers.. there are newer drivers that came out in Nov 07, Dec 07, Jan 08 and even Feb 08. Here's the link to Mac OS drivers for your specific printer...

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=11641#DownloadDetailAct

Please download and install all of the applicable drivers/software, because I have found that features such as color management come from the Easy Photo software, not the driver stuff.

The second link here is the directions on how to set up the duplex printing in Mac OS systems. It's a step-by-step and seems pretty comprehensive.

Good Luck!
Let us know how it works out for you!
