High Gradation 8bit
Highest Gradation 16bit
Selecting the printing mode strikes the balance between the quality of the printed image and printing speed.
The following settings are available for the print mode.
Highest (Max. No. of Passes)
The selectable fields may vary according to the Media Type, Input Resolution to Plug-in and Input Bit to Plug-in
You can select the output profile.
The following settings are available for the output profile.
Auto (Monochrome Photo)
None (No Color Correction)
External ICC Profiles
To use an ICCv4 profile, you must install AdobeCMM or use Print Plug-In in a Windows Vista or later environment. For
details on installing Adobe CMM, refer to Using Adobe CMM
Auto (Monochrome Photo) can only be selected for the corresponding media types.
This is displayed when an ICC profile is selected as the Output Profile.
When this is checked, you can perform printing press simulation prints.

A setting for printing at the highest resolution when quality is most important. Printing takes longer
and consumes more ink than in other modes, but this mode offers superior printing quality.
Choose this setting to print at high resolution when quality is most important. Printing takes longer
and consumes more ink than in Standard or Fast modes, but this mode offers exceptional print-
Choose this setting to print at standard resolution when quality and speed are both important.
Printing takes less time than in Highest or High mode.
Choose this setting to print faster. Printing in fast mode can help you work more efficiently when
If you are concerned about uneven colors in the print result of Highest quality, selecting this op-
tion may improve printing results. However, printing may take longer.
Performs the optimum color conversion from the input image data color space information (sRGB,
Adobe RGB), media settings etc. You should normally select these settings.
Performs the best color conversion to monochrome from the input image data color space infor-
mation (sRGB, Adobe RGB), media settings etc.
You cannot perform color conversion with a plug-in. This is useful for creating an original ICC
This selects printer ICC profiles to be output to ICC profiles saved in the OS standard folder. Use
the color space of the input data as well as the select ICC profile to perform color conversion.
