ECMS - Configuring the ImageNow Printer
After installing the Perceptive Content desktop client for imaging, the ImageNow Printer should be configured to ensure that it can print in color and so that thumbnails are generated for image files. In order to configure the ImageNow Printer, you need to make changes to the inowprint.ini file with a text editor program such as Textpad or Notepad++.
- Go to the [drive]:\<Program Files> or <Program Files (x86)>\ImageNow\etc folder, and then open the inowprint.ini file in a text editor.
Note: If the inowprint.ini file does not exist, it is likely that the ImageNow printer was not installed during the Perceptive Content installation, or the installation was not performed as an administrator.
- Adjust the following settings as follows:
Color reduction = color
BW compression = Group4
Color compression = Medium quality JPEG
Indexed compression = Packbits
Grayscale compression = Medium quality JPEG
Why are these changes necessary?
Updating the Indexed compression setting allows thumbnails to be created properly when printing certain file types (e.g. JPEGS). Updating the Color reduction setting allows for color printing.
