Applying the Saved Tone Curve When Printing

You can apply the saved tone curve when printing.

  1. Open the original data with the application, and then click [Print] on the [File] menu.

    Example: Sample B (B_sample.pdf) is used.

  2. Select the printer to use for printing and click [Properties].

  3. Select [Default Settings] for [Favorite Setting] and click [Load].

    Before setting the tone curve, restore the default setting.

  4. Click the [Imaging] tab, and then click [Acquire Image Controller Default].

    When the default settings of the image controller are acquired, a green checkmark is displayed.

    • If the default settings of the image controller cannot be acquired, a red mark is displayed. Check if an optional paper tray is correctly mounted.

  5. Under [Tone Curve], select the tone curve you want to apply and click [OK].

    You can set different tone curves for [Image] and [Text/Graphics].

    Example: "Sample-Curve" is selected.

    • A warning symbol  is displayed when you set a tone curve. This is because it is different from the controller's current default setting. Proceed by clicking [OK].

    • To hold the text/graphic density to 100%, select the check box.

  6. On the [Print] screen, enter the [Copies] and click [Print].

    The original is printed using the applied tone curve.
