Print from Photoshop CS6 in Windows
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to print documents from Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
To begin, we should have Photoshop open. The icon for Photoshop is a blue square at the bottom. Once we have Photoshop open, we should also naturally have a document open to print it.
You can either create a new document or open an existing one. There is another VisiHow video on how to do that.
Our screen will look something like the one in the tutorial when we have our document opened. The document is on its own tab at the left-hand side. If we have multiple documents open, then they will be listed in separate tabs along the top.
We click "File" in the top-left corner to bring up a new menu.
We can click "Print..." or "Print One Copy" at the bottom of the menu. Generally, we just click "Print". We click either of the two once to bring up a new window. It will ask us to go through the set-up options.
At the top, we should change our printer if it already hasn't been found. In this video, "Epson L210 Series" is chosen. We click the "Printer" drop-down menu and select the printer. The image will be adjusted judging by the printer settings.
Underneath "Printer", we can select how many copies we should print by clicking and typing the value.
We can also edit our layout by making it either portrait or landscape. We can click whichever one we prefer. We will see the changes at the left-hand side in the preview.
We can edit our printing settings as well by tapping "Print Settings...". This will bring up another new window as well. This is for more specific things as when we want a double-side printing, or when we want to print the document like a leaflet. These settings will vary depending on our printer. We can see that the document size is "Letter" in this video.
Let's click "Document Size" and select "A4". As the paper is in the printer. It is necessary to take a look at "Document Size" and see if something seems a bit strange in the print preview. We can see that the dimensions are strange for "A4" when "Letter" is selected. We click "Document Size" and make sure that everything in the area is OK.
In "Color", we definitely pick "Color", not "Grayscale", which sometimes might be clicked. If we want to bring in color, we ensure that the "Color" option is clicked.
We can change "Orientation" as well.
We can select "Paper Type". We can have glossy or matte paper. Let's pick "plain papers".
We select "Quality". We can select whether we want it "High", "Standard", or "Draft". "Standard" is OK. It's usually a good standard. If we obviously print a final outcome, we can click "High".
We don't need to go through all of the options if we are printing something very quickly. However, if we have specific requirements, then, by all means, we can take a look.
When we are satisfied with selections, we click "OK" to save the settings. The image will be adjusted to the A4 page.
We can select "Color Management" if we need to. We should leave that on the default setting, as it should all be fine after setting up our printer. Again, if we need to change sometime, then, by all means, we can go through and edit those settings.
We can leave "Position and Size" at the default settings. We can double-check if height, scale, and everything else is OK.
We can click "Done" if we want to. Photoshop will just save the settings.
When we are satisfied with the information at the top, we just click "Print" in the bottom right-hand corner. In this video, we cannot print the document, because the printer has not been plugged in.
We can be told that our printer needs to crop the image slightly. We can either click "Cancel" if we don't want it to or click "Proceed" to print the example. This is the point where the printer prints the image. In this example, the printer is not ready though.
This is a VisiHow video. We've just shown you how you can print from Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions, comments, or queries, feel free to add them to the section below. We'll do our best to get back to you.
