Making the Print

Okay, you’ve hardware calibrated your monitor (or at the very least—you “eyed it”) and you’ve set up Elements’ Color Management to use Adobe RGB (1998). You’ve even downloaded a printer profile for the exact printer model and style of paper you’re printing on. In short—you’re there. Luckily, you only have to do all that stuff once—now we can just sit back and print. Well, pretty much.

Step One:

Once you have an image all ready to go, just go under the Editor’s File menu and choose Print (as shown here).

Step Two:

When the Print dialog appears, let’s choose your printer and paper size first. At the top right of the dialog, choose the exact printer you want to print to from the Select Printer pop-up menu (I’m printing to an Epson Stylus Pro 3880). Next, choose your paper size from the Select Paper Size pop-up menu (in this case, a 13x19″ sheet), choose your page orientation beneath that menu, and then from the Select Print Size pop-up menu (in the middle right), be sure that Actual Size is selected. In the middle of the Print dialog, you’ll see a preview of how your photo will fit on the printed page, and at the bottom of the column on the right, there’s an option for how many copies you want to print.
