    image cropping

    Hi I went to print an image today using my Canon Pixma 100s and encountered a problem I have never had before. Despite the image being correct in the print screen of Lr, what came out was about 70% of the image filling the paper. The only alterations to the settings I have made since I last...

    Borderless printing in lightroom

    Hi Danny, good point. It's not that I only want borderless prints. I just wanted a particular print borderless - largely because I had a mount that was slightly too big for a print with a border on the size of paper I had. All could be solved by getting mounts to fit the prints of course, but I...

    Borderless printing in lightroom

    Hi, yes I have tried the software, but found it was just another layer of things to check and tick on top of all the ones in Lr and was never sure whether I should leave the controls in Lr and just use the canon print software, or do both.

    Borderless printing in lightroom

    I origninally set it to "manage custom sizes" then entered the actual size of the A4 paper (saw someone on Youtube do it that way) - I didn't see the A4 borderless option in your screenshot above. There seems to be about three different screens all offering a similar option. We have a...

    Borderless printing in lightroom

    Hi there, it's a Canon Pixma 100 and the borderless option exists as an option - see screenshot. I'd be pretty surprised if the Pixma doesn't support this.

    Borderless printing in lightroom

    It's a Pentax K5, with an APS-C sensor. No other crops have been made in Lr, so the raw file is straight out of the camera. I understand that the image/sensor format may not be the same as the paper format. I had thought if you select borderless printing and set margins to zero - using the steps...

    Borderless printing in lightroom

    Pixel dimensions - you've got me there, I'm quite new to this so I'm afraid to say I don't know. The borders are irregular.

    Borderless printing in lightroom

    Hi folks, Can anyone help me with this. I have chosen the paper size in page setup (210x297mm - A4) and set the margins to zero, set the margins to zero in the print module of Lr. The image on the screen now has no borders, but the print still came out with borders. Can anyone suggest what I...

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I actually couldn’t get it to work wirelessly, so it’s connected with a usb now. I’ve had a reasonably good print this morning. Perhaps I’ll re-calibrate my monitor. I have changed the paper from gloss to semi, I think the addition of the canon plug in may have...

    Help with first prints

    Hi Phil, I seem to have another hurdle. I’m back to colour and I’ve tried an a3 print on semi gloss, the original print I did on gloss at a4 came out ok, eventually, but the a3 version is much warmer, I seem to be back where I started. I had been printing without soft proofing, so I tried soft...

    Help with first prints

    Thanks for you reply, House moves are stressful so I appreciate your time. I guess a basic question (very basic) that I should have asked at the start is -“ the correct profile in the print dialogue box” - looking at the screenshot I have posted, is this the drop down box titled presets, ie with...

    Hi Phil, Hi Phil, thanks for the message. Here's some screen shots of the stages. I have b&W selected in the develop screen in Lr. One of the dropdown boxes here shows adobe monochrome, but I have it set to B&W 12 - is that right?. The paper profile is set to canon glossy (that's all I have -...

    Help with first prints

    Hi James, A couple of questions - how do I disable the profiling through the printer driver - in the printer settings? And what do I change it to? Also is there any setting I should be using in Lr when printing in b&w? And I can print from a jpeg, I’d rather use a higher quality file like a...

    Help with first prints

    Hello again, I,ve tried b&w and it’s come out all grey and flat, not at all like the image I edited in the Tonality app and imported into Lr as a tiff. Any ideas on how to resolve this, is there a setting I should change when switching from colour printing to b&w? Thanks in advance.

    Hello again folks. Thanks for all your help last time - now for b&w. My original raw files were edited in an app called tonality as I like some of the film simulations, it seems to turn the files into tiffs - is this ok for Lr printing? Anyway my first print came out very grey, like someone had...

    Canon pixma 100s ink

    Hi folks, Does anyone know whether non canon inks will be just as good as canon? I know that there are warranty issues if the printer breaks down using non canon inks, but in terms of quality will another, cheaper compatible brand do? I don’t want to sacrifice quality and am prepared to pay for...
