ECMS - Configuring the ImageNow Printer
After installing the ImageNow client, the ImageNow Printer should be configured to ensure that it can print in color and so that thumbnails are generated for image files.
Opening the following file with a text editor (Notepad++ or other):
[drive]:\<Program Files> or <Program Files (x86)>\ImageNow\etc\inowprint.ini
Adjust the following settings located in the file:
- Indexed compression: From "Packbits" to "Medium quality JPEG"
- Color reduction: From "BW" to "Optimal"
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.
