  • Wouldn't want to find out the hard way if you're right about a delayed tilt switch. That 25.5" length limit is a drawback of the otherwise excellent printer.  It actually used to be shorter - ...
  • That's really nice to know. If you think about it, how could the printer empty the reservoir tanks when it's off? I once moved a large format Canon by trailer up and down steep hills. The ...
  • The printer comes with a partially filled set of tanks. I think Q-Image has a routine that can be set to automatically print periodically. As far as cleaning cycle wasted ink, I don't worry about ...
  • Even with empties in place, it sounds like the Pro-1000 tilt switch would still empty the reservoir tanks and dump this ink into the waste tank. Empties would of course not refill those reservoir ...
  • 25.5" length max and 17" width max. I don't print without a margin to avoid over-spray problems - especially on a vacuum system like the Pro-1000's. soloryb
  • Pro-1000 gets my vote. I've had several Canon and Epson photo printers and much prefer Canons. My Epson 3880 clogged frequently after about 1.5 years of use - which required frequent ink-wasting ...
  • I've sprayed and rollered Timeless, and - as you say - spraying takes a lot of additional time for prep and equipment cleaning. For some rag papers, the danger of using a roller is that you can ...
  • In LR > Print Module > Color Management, choose your paper/printer profile (not printer manages colors). Turn off printer manages colors in your printer's dialog box. Then LR will manage colors. so ...
  • Listen to Andrew C. He knows a great deal about canvas printing and mounting. soloryb
  • I remember once having to restretch a canvas that had a corner sag, but that was because I didn't stretch it properly to begin with. Otherwise, I had no sagging issues. When you use the EasyWrappe ...
  • The system works very well - if you use canvas. I've never used it beyond 16" X 24. Once you get the hang of it, the mounting goes incredibly fast. I've had EasyWrappe mounted canvas prints for ...
  • Been there, done that. The short answer is that you can save plenty on the price per square foot - if you buy the rolls on sale. Unfortunately, that's not the only consideration. There's the labor ...
  • Replied in Canon PSP Auto
    Thanks, You were right. The Canon ICC profile is made active in PSP when the media type is chosen and Auto is selected for the ICC Profile. I can see this by using soft proof and Auto for the ICC ...
  • Replied in Canon PSP Auto
    Thanks, OK, I concede. Choosing the Media Type and choosing Auto in the Printing Profile drop-down list does pick the appropriate profile automatically for that media. I set the Printing Profile to ...

    John, You're reading this all wrong. Yes, you can download both the AM1 file and its associated ICC profile for each of Canon's papers (as well as other manufacturers. The AM1 just has ...

    I don't think so. See my response to John Hoffman. Do the little experiment. The media type chosen in PSP has nothing to do with the ICC profile. Regards, soloryb

    I think you mean Media Configuration Tool - useful for automatically dialing in the correct media settings on the printer for each media. Didn't realize that the MCT won't work with a Pro-100. To ...

    Thanks for getting into all this technobabble re PSP. John Hoffman wrote: "As you know, there are two parts for setting up a print - media type and ICC profile. In PSP the only media types you can ...

    Upon further testing of PSP: 'Auto' makes a difference. I tried several different papers and I see a color difference using PSP with 'Auto' for the choice in Printer Profile and choosing choosing ...
