Getting lines in prints Photoshop CS6

Jun 28, 2013 7:47 PM

Hello,

 

I am getting lines in my prints from PhotoShop CS6.

 

My printer is the Canon MX522.

 

Ive noticed that printing from other *dumb* programs such as Microsoft Paint the images look fine BUT with photoshop the images print ultra fast and have lines. It looks like note taking paper. How do I fix this? I am guessing this is some kind of Printer quality setting????

    That's a function of the printer driver.

    There might be a quality setting in the driver, or you might just need to update the driver software.

    Yeah, you might be wrong.

    No, Photoshop cannot override the driver.

     

    The speed, the spacing, and everything but the bits to print on the page are controlled by the driver software.

    Sounds like you're in a draft print mode.

    Yes, it might make sense if the driver has different code paths for different print APIs, or if the driver has a bug in it's color management code, etc.

     

    The application just sends an image and some metadata (color profile, placement within the printable area, etc.) - the driver then turns that image into commands for the printer.

     

    And we have seen this sort of driver bug before, with a Canon printer IIRC.
