We must be reading completely different posts. It was a succinct paraphrasing of The Hat's post. apetitphoto's premise is knowing how to ride first and then learn to ride better. This is analogous to what The Hat suggests: use the printer in stock mode first, get to know your printer's abilities, then explore customizations and tweaks if you want.Possibly - but that is not what he said.
let the printer do everything for you first, select the print, let the printer know which paper you intend using (Media setting) and the print quality you wish to use, and finally the paper size and orientation.
You will be surprised just how well the printer will handle everything for you, you can practice changing the Media setting and print quality and over time you’ll learn more than any book could ever teach you, it's hands on experience.
To sum up just use the tools that Canon gave you in their print driver, until you have sufficient confidence to delve further into making better prints, learn how to walk first, and only then buy the shoes...
