Question about Canon iP4500 Photo Printer

1 Answer

Mac leopard and ip4500

I cannot get my mac to print borderless prints with my new ip4500. my windows laptop works perfectly but the mac, from iphoto prints A4 with borders and A5 with hugely irregular borders. the canon easy-photo ex doesnt recognise my photos in iPhoto either-they are all grey-ed out. I had tried loading latest drivers to no avail

    I have tried using adobe photoshop with the same results, I have also contacted Canon for the latest driver and Apple support to no avail. I am unable to save photos from iPhoto under a different filename for some reason but they are .JPEG files anyway. ANy other thoughts? I think it must be down to incorrect printer driver from Canon for Leopard.

    I can´t print a picture without the border. The borderless section is all greyed-out.

    What can I do?

Have you tried using different software for your printing.
Something that will give you more scope and resolution Options.
Such As Paint Shop Pro et,c. Or try and locate the default program for the hardware. Also try opening and re-saving the photos in a different Format i.e J-peg Or Bitmap. The canon is probably used to it,s own specific format. Finally is to check the paper-scaling, you,ll have to do various test prints at allocated sizes, to ensure the printers doing the scaling that it should be.
Hope this is helpful for you.

When using canon pro 9000 with photoshop on a MAC Snow Leopard computer, I cannot print borderless pictures. How can I fix this problem

Preserve your memories forever with borderless printed photographs--while saving money and time by printing from the comfort of your own home. Some printers do not have the option of printing borderless prints, so make sure your printer supports borderless printing before beginning this project.

  • Download your digital photo to your computer from a digital cameramag-glass_10x10.gif, email or the Internet. Save the photo to your hard drive to a folder that you can find later such as "Pictures."
  • Step 2Open your digital photo in a photo-viewing software. Click "Print" from your menu. Go to your printer properties to change your printer's "Page Setup." Access "Properties" through the "Preferences" or "Options" link in your "Print" dialog box. Many software programs have a default margin or border for photos; to print borderless photos, you'll have to remove the default margin.

    Getting a borderless print

    Try this if that helps:

    Using iPhoto to create borderless prints To use iPhoto to create borderless prints, please follow all of the steps below:
    1. While logged in as an Administrator, install the latest Canon printer drivers onto your computer (with Mac OS X v10.2 or later as the operating system) and select the appropriate printer as the default.

    2. Launch iPhoto.

    3. From iPhoto, select and open the image you wish to print. (Please refer to the Apple web site for instructions on how to use iPhoto.)

    4. When you are ready to make a print, select from the Menu Bar 'File: Page Setup'.

    5. The Page Setup dialog will appear.

    6. Select the following settings:

      1. Settings: Page Attribute
      2. Format for: <Select the Canon printer you wish to use>
      3. Paper Size: 4x6 (borderless)
      4. Orientation: <Select the matching orientation>
      5. Scale: <Select the appropriate scale>

    7. Select 'OK' and the Page Setup dialog will close.

    8. From iPhoto, from within the Constrain section of the browser window, select from the pull-down menu (i.e., the button directly above the Constrain label) either '4x6' or '4x6 Portrait'. Then, using your mouse cursor, mouse-over the image and when the Cross-Hairs are over the upper left-hand corner of the portion of the image you wish to print, click and drag from the left to the right in a downwardly diagonal motion, releasing the click at the end of the image selection.

    9. Click the 'Crop' button.

    10. From the Menu Bar, select 'File: Print', select your options, then select 'Print'.

    11. This selection, revealed in the iPhoto window will now print as a borderless, 4x6 print.
    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance,
    please post back with a comment to this thread.

    MP600 with Mac OS X - no borderless printing option?

    I had the same question. I found the answer at Canon's site but I can't link directly to the page so here's how I found the solution...
    1. Go to the Canon Support site. 2. In the "Please enter your question field" type: How do I Print edge to edge? 3. Hit the "Search" button. 4. Click the #1 (top) search result "How do I Print edge to edge?" 5. Click the #1 (top) solution: "Use Borderless Printing (Mac OS X) MP600 6. Follow the directions.
    It seems the main thing you need to do is go to the "Page Setup" dialog. Then make sure you've chosen the MP600 in the "Format for:" popup menu. Finally, in the "Paper Size:" popup, select "A4" then "A4 (borderless). It's a hierarchical menu.
    FWIW I still haven't gotten a "perfect" borderless print. Seems you gotta get the paper in there exactly straight...

    Mac Leopard OS: Can't print from photo tray

    Here's the trick. It took me an hour to figure this puzzle out myself. DO NOT select the Print icon at the bottom of iPhoto. Do NOT select Print from the File menu. DO select EXPORT from the File menu. Select the HP Photosmart Mac tab Select HP Photosmart from the app selector. Click the Export button. HP Photosmart will load with a new print dialog box. Make all necessary selections. This is where you can select the Photo Tray as the tray for the printer to take paper from. This solved MY problem! Let us know if this helps you!
