Use Printer Black and White Mode – Capture One Quick Tips

Do you want to print black and white photos in high quality? Then this tip is for you. Good quality printers use more colors for better color rendition and not just black but several gray inks for better tone rendition when you print in black and white.

Step One (Windows)

After you have up everything for printing and before you actually start to print you have to click The Print Settings… button, select your printer and click on Preferences. Now, you reached the printer driver panel, that means it’s different from printer to printer. Here I show you the panel of a Epson Stylus Pro 4880. Epson printers has the so called Advanced B&W Photo mode, that you need to use here and can be selected from the Color drop down. Other manufacturers have other options for this, so I encourage you to read the manual of your printer to find out the best black and white photo printing mode provided by your printer.0
