I was trying to print a collage of sorts to act as a label for a travel medicine case, so I needed a rather specific size and orientation on the paper.
The monitor is calibrated. I print to this printer from Capture One and LightRoom all the time with no issues.
Firstly the print had a rather severe Magenta cast to it. Yes, I ran through all the printer diagnostics.
I was also unable to print in the orientation and scale that I wanted. The image was saved as a pdf, and it printed just fine the first time at the scale and orientation I wanted.
Doing some spelunking around the web, there doesn’t seem to be much positive reinforcement for printing from the Windows version of GIMP. Virtually everything I found said not to do it.
So, obviously there is some special sauce that I’m unaware of.
