    Lightroom Print Settings - Paper Type

    ianm2k4 Level 1

      I have a Canon Pro-10 printer. It is known that in the printer settings if you set the Media Type to a fine art paper then the driver enforces a 30mm margin on the print. So if you try to print from Lightroom but have 10mm margins it refuses to print until you change something.

       

      Now I can get around this by setting the Media type to a photo paper so I could print edge to edge on a fine art paper.

       

      My question is;

       

      As I can set the paper size in the Page Setup dialog, I have colour managed by Lightroom and I use the correct ICC profile for the paper/printer, does this Media Type setting actually do anything in respect of the print? I have printed some canvas prints and I can see no difference in the print quality?
