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????
yeah, hmm its all up to date. See it works fine in other *dumb* software. I might be wrong but doesn't Photoshop override the driver somewhat? I noticed when using Microsoft Paint that the printer seems to print slower, I think the faster speeds are causing the issues.
See it wouldn't make sense, Why would photoshop cause problems that are not apparent in other applications. Clearly SOMETHING is causing this problem, unless if the driver its self reacts to commands from Photoshop diffrently then lets say MS Paint it wouldn't make sense. Ive looked into this possibility as well with no leads.
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.
