    What do I think? I am concerned about my subscription. There is no way that I would go without this great publication. Have no idea when it is payable and would be most appreciative of your dropping me a line.

    Warmest personal regards,

    Jim

    This was a good video but I’m curious why the Print Screen that I get on my Mac version of PSE 9 looks different from what is in the video. I only have three options. I am missing Option 2, Printer Settings and Option 4, Type of Print.

      Hi Walter-

      There’s a couple possibilities. The most likely is the type of printer you have connected. I used an Epson 3800 in the video and the drivers install several things specific to that printer. However, with a different printer connected, the options can (and likely will) change. Just to test it out, I switched to a standard ink jet from Canon, and the options you mentioned above disappeared as well.

      The other slight possibility is the version of Elements. This video was shot using Elements 10, which had some changes made from Elements 9. But, I’m still thinking that the likely answer is the type of printer you have connected.

        Thanks. I am using a Canon printer and Elements 9 so that explains the difference.

    Hi Mike.
    Your basic printing video sounds good.
    Q: does it cover printing (your own) photo books?

      Not in this video. This was designed as an intro to the topic. I sent you a reply to your email with a few more details. :)

    I just subscribed to your magazine. I finished watching “Basic Elements Survival Guide” – no problem. I have tried to watch “Elements Printing Basics” and am told my Windows 7 Media Player does not support it. I downloaded Apple’s QuickTime Player. Still can’t watch it. Can you tell me what codec I need to watch it? Or some other clue so that I can begin enjoying my subscription? Thanks. –Mike Rodda

    I just bought the program and took it for a test drive. My print colors are nothing like the screen colors so I looked for help here… what no “cheat sheet” to this video!!!
    Com on guys, how about a cheat sheet on matching the printer colors to the screen. I’m using an Epson Stylus Photo R260 printer .

      Print colors not matching the colors we see on our monitors seems to be a very common problem. The printer documentation on Canon’s web site is not helpful. There should be a way to print a color chart, hold it up to the monitor, and somehow dial in corrections to get the colors to match. Since we still need our monitor colors to be transferable to other computers, it’s the printers which seem to require the corrections. Please tell us how to attack the problem.
