usually, if not all almost all printers allow you to set printing preferences before you print. 1. In windows, when you are about to print a document or photo, click preferences then you should be able to change printing quality. Usually, printers have radio buttons(option
buttons to select best "text","best quality", "photo quality" and "best photo quality". Just selct your preferences then click ok, then print. 2. If printing photos, there will be a warning to use photo paper instead of the usual paper. 3. Did this answer your question?

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
On Mac, You have no silly popups when you print something, instead you'll just see the printer icon in the dock, or bouncing if it needs your attention, if you installed the drivers, and you can print, and all other functions work, that's all that matters. Search Apple or your manufactures website if you want additional scanning / faxing software if needed. Also, info about your printer is found in System Preferences --> Printers and Faxes (or similar name) and double click your printer, other wise, use the buttons below for other options.

Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the
printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print
Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will

instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon
printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing
Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.
Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.
Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.
Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.
In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.
Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.
Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.
The print quality usually depends on the program you're using to print them on your pc. Your camera only ever sends photos to your printer, so the best settings are already selected by the camera and it's built-in photo program. Your printer doesn't 'know' whether your printing a document or a photo, so the settings for each program on your computer are basic (known as default settings), and need to be changed by you to get the best from your printer Find the settings that let you alter the printers options (in Word, it's FILE \ PRINT \ PROPERTIES), and make sure the printer output is set to maximum quality, and that photo paper is selected as the paper type. Some options such as 'maximum quality' only appear when you've chosen 'photo paper', and some printers (such as the ip4300) have seperate options for gloss or matte paper, so go through all of them until you see what you need.
When printing from programs like that, usually the "BEST" option is selected for the print quality.. Try going into the preferences and choosing a lower quality.
If that doesn't help, for Photoshop, you can "save for web and devices", choose PNG and then save to desktop, and use another program to print the file. Or when in the print dialogue, make sure "printer manages colour management"
Not too sure about Iphoto print settings, but there may be something in there.
