Previously Evely sent her images to a lab to be printed, so she hadn't had to make decisions about printers, settings and paper before. "Using the PIXMA PRO-200 has been a real adventure for me," she says. "It feels like magic to be able to print photos myself, to create them right here in my studio. Making each print is a special moment. It's great to be able to manipulate images, change settings and use different papers to get a different look and feel for my images."
"Canon offers a wide range of photo papers and fine art media but also works closely with prestigious paper producers such as Canson and Hahnemühle to give a choice of wide-ranging media," adds Suhaib. "This way we can provide exactly the look and feel you want, with readily available ICC profiles
to ensure accuracy.
"For double-sided and even just regular one-sided photo print output, the precision of the paper transport system is critical," he continues. "The PIXMA PRO-200 features skew correction and automatically retracting side paper guides to ensure absolute accuracy, avoiding the cost and wasted time of print feed errors."
Evely used Canon Professional Print & Layout
(PPL) software to ensure her final images looked exactly how she wanted them. PPL works as a standalone program and as a plug-in for Adobe® Lightroom® and Photoshop® and can be used for creating custom layouts of multiple images on a single page. "It's a powerful tool," says Suhaib. "Some photographers are surprised by how useful it is, especially as it's a free program available for Canon's latest pro-grade photo printers. One of the improvements in the Canon PIXMA PRO-200
is enhanced 'gamut mapping', which narrows the gap between what you see on-screen and what you get in print," he explains. "PPL goes further still, enabling you to make subtle changes in colour rendition and adding versatility to fine-tuning mono print output in 'Black and White Photo' mode, so you can get exactly the look you want on any type of paper."
