A photo printing wizard miscellany

by Matt 26. October 2007 11:12

Despite being surprisingly inflexible about it's print sizes, I do like that photo printing wizard. As long as you play by its rules, it's very good.

Just remember to check out the "Options" link at the bottom right of the wizard. You get a dialog like this:

Print Settings

I've turned off the "Sharpen for printing" option, and it's made a huge difference to my photos; they look much more natural now. I haven't been overly pleased with how they've have been printing - everything's been a little too crisp, with very hard edges. I'm very glad to have sorted this out. I'd also recommend having a wander through your printer's colour settings - my Epson was thoughtfully "enhancing" my photos. Not any more.

Anyway, if you feel the urge to add this wizard to your application, you can find it in the Windows Image Acquisition SDK. Simply create WIA.CommonDialog and call ShowPhotoPrintingWizard passing in a list of filenames. It's even been around since XP (Service Pack 1).

And it's nice to know that I'm not alone in wanting to be able to print at arbitrary sizes. But according to an online chat held by Microsoft TechNet, I might be out of luck:

Q: Will the photo printing wizard allow custom sized photos?
A: There are no current plans to support this.

Q: Will the photo printing wizard allow for custom layouts?
A: We are looking at making the templates extensible in the next version.

This was from way back in June 2002. Maybe in Windows 7.

I wonder if he cheated on her? I remember he cheated on his previous wife with JLO so it wouldn’t be surprising.

Jennifer Lopez's indecisiveness with regard to coming back to American Idol could possibly cost her a spot on the show's judging panel.  Lopez has not yet made a final call over whether she may be coming back again to the tv program for season 11

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.

Por eso digo que no veo justo tacharla de mielda de maquina, otra cosa es el servicio tecnico que en mi experiencia deja bastante que desear y te digo que en placa solo ha fallado una (creo que es placa vaya) de un margen de cerca de veinte que pillamos, por lo tanto la media no me da a pensar que las placas vayan malas de serie. Creo que una de las cosas mas importantes para comprar cualquier producto es justamente el servicio post venta y por lo que he leido en todos los foros este es patetico.
