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.

    I am trying to print a photo from my scanner for a transfer page. Do you have to use the computer or can I just use the printer without the computer?


    IF you are using a memory card or using a Camera connected to printer ( Pict Bridge ) you do not need a PC to Print. You can see the details on the Printer screen and print it directly from it without a PC.

    Selphy 510 won't print from computer, print ok from camera ...


    Did you download and install the proper Vista driver from Canon's website? If not, I would suggest that. If you have, then try opening the device manager and look for the printer. Reinstall the driver and just direct it to look in the proper folder for it.

    I think that if you use the bottom tray to load the paper, you can use the different sizes of paper to print. Make sure to click the second button inside the lid that shows the direction the paper is fed into the printer. hope this helps!

    Lines on a photo when printed


    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.

    Hope that helps :)

    Colour photo printing has a green tinge


    This could be one of many things.
    Monitor Calibration to Printer.
    Camera green Bias
    And good many more
    The thing is not to print direct from camera , but to use an image editor to colour correct.
    A free simple one is Googles free Picasa.
    Otherwise there are many more some free a lot to be paid for.
    As always there is a learning curve.

    New Canon Rebel xti photos won't print on my Epson Photo R320


    Re-install the printer after downloading the latest driver from Epson. It is quite likely that the Canon software has over written the colour profile for the Epson.
