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.
Opening the following file with a text editor (Notepad++ or other):
[drive]:\<Program Files> or <Program Files (x86)>\ImageNow\etc\inowprint.ini (If this 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 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.
