Time for a li0ttle heresey.
I am teaching myself to use a grown up printer (Pixma pro 9000 mk11) so I use 3rd party inks I found on E-bay.
In the 3 years i'e been using the 3rd party inks I've had 2 or three bad carts. when the color balance takes a dump on me, i do a litle color research and...
Alive and well gearing up for retirement
Shoulder replacement next week, closely followed followed by right wrist and hand
Discovered printing on Strathmore water color papers, and other similar papers
it's as close as I will ever get to painting
I'll offer it up on e-bay for parts and see what happens
failing that I'll see what it takes to disassemble this thing to put in an external ink potty.
Thanks for your time

Close, I bought a printer for a back up, but for reasons unknown I never ran it.
The print head developed steaks , that normal maintenance wouldn't fix, so I washed and blow dried it, successfully.
Before I tried it on my daily driver, I thought it prudent to finally fire up my spare, and see...
I've had a pixma pro 9000 mkii stashed in the back b/r for a year or so (it was inexpensive and allegedly open box).
My work horse pixma pro 9000 MKii developed streaks on one nozzle, so I pulled the head to give it an overdue wash, and blow dry.
unnecessary drama and detail deleted

Now to see if something eats the drivers.
I have delayed updates up till November to give me a chance to get feed back about what updates are hazardous to my printing processes.
It seems to be making all the appropriate noises and is happy to be printing with Photoshop...
Still can't figure why it was installed but not indicated in the process. Not that it really matters.
Having done some reading about the apparent non install,, i read page after page of canon printer owners whose canon printer drivers were knocked out by win 10 updates.
This is just cruel...
I have no idea how much there is to know, much less how much of that is pertinent to my needs..
I would not have suspected the entire pedigree of the machine was necessary for identification.
In that is a question for the ages.
Unlike driving a car, where everyone i know drives,or has driven one...
I already did the install from the canon site and got the usual response.
The printer is installed, and working
I was dicking around in PS this a.m., and thought to look at the print menus.
And lo and behold PS saw the printer, so I printed something.
I looked for more recent versions...
I asked a simple question, well maybe not that simple but, a straight forward question and I catch crap for it.
If you don't have a positive answer, please feel free to keep your facebook attitude to your self.
BTW Ii fixed it
SO I gave up my search for PSE 14. Qimage was close. but sadly it was too far above my knowledge level, and or sophistication.
SO, in theory Light room Clasic would run on win 7. I had a tech from way over yonder, install it for me because i couldn't, for all of the install erors I got.
they don't print for crap
PSE14 gave me control of the paper, who was in control of the printing.
how big is the paper, where do you want the image on it,, what paper are you using,
I currently have 3 programs Qimage, Gimp, raw therapee, and Light room classic, doing poorly what PSE14 did...
My first ex wife gave me a new Pixma pro 9500 before she died, two years ago. It is the first grownup printer I have ever had, or wanted. So I've learned, what little I know about ink jet printing from this and Photo Shop 14 elements .
I'm not a big PS user but I have friends who are, and for...
the software that came with the printer is nearly idiot proof, as far as printing goes. Lord knows I've tried to mismatch paper and print, but it won't let me. Then there are times when it tells me i've done something wrong but won't give me an option to correct it.
When I couldn't print on a...
when you say "the app" which app are you speaking of?.
The paper sizze can be changed in a couple of places, in the software I have don't know what you're running
The paper size can be changed on the first page but it it is a limited menu, in advances setingson the page setup there is a broader...
if there is an existing solution for this situation I would be grateful, for a link.
Printing 11 X 17 140 lb cold pressed cotton rag, gives pastels a whole new meaning.
So to day i asked fo a 15 X 12 area and got something off center, and about 12 X 10.
I tried on some thinner stock and got the...
