8580 advice printing photos or pictures

I'd like to print high quality glossy prints with my new 8580.  Does anyone have advice on specific settings on the printer, paper to use, and any app specific experience with Photoshop / Lightroom?  Thank you!

Re: 8580 advice printing photos or pictures

Print Quality = Photo

Anything done in the Image Options tab does not apply to every picture, so I can't give specifics, if the photo is too bland you can use

Vivid Color, if the application is being used to enhance color set the color correction to None in the driver

Best bet typically is to export to pdf and print.

 

And in any Adobe product you are much better to Let Printer determine color, If you don't, you tend to get purple blues and magenta reds due to RGB-CMYK conversions.

 

Paper is preferences, Do you want it shiny? Dual Gloss

Matte Finish? Matte or Opaque papers.

There are also ColorLoq papers that will resist fading and of course thickness is a thing to consider.

 

Personally I tend to like the 220GSM Gloss color expressions paper.
