  • photoshop files printing speed

    since I know a lot of you are smarter than me ;o)

    is there anything beyond file size that affects the time it takes from when i hit print on the computer to when the printer actually spits it out?

    i'm working on a Mac. OS 10.3.9 printing on an HP 4600 using Photoshp CS

    any hints beyond "making the file size smaller" would help.

    I've searched on google to no avail and photoshop help didn't really "help"
    ;o)
    You see, whenever I start feeling sick, I just stop being sick and be awesome instead. True story.

    Increase the memory in your printer, update your print driver, create a PDF of the document then print it... Some ideas, good luck!

        Make sure the image is flattened and depending on how big the file is, reduce the resolution/size.

        Im guessing your only printing it to check colours/etc? So full res may not be nescessary?

          Depending on your printers post-script capabilities, we print it to a post script file and reopen it and then print. It reduces the time by at least 75%.

            There can be much more to the process that goes beyond the first meeting where you don't always get a budget and a contract on that particular day and you may have to put some money into the process before...

            I am in the real world and this is how I work. I don't proceed without a 50% check in hand. I've never had any trouble getting it. Must be my personal charm and talent

            Yes, my only other idea was a carbon fiber texture on the main "gorilla" text...I just chose to post here before executing anything further. I really don't want to emphasize teeth, but...
