Printing a Color Document in Monochrome

  3. Complete the setup

    Click OK.
    When you execute print, the document is converted to grayscale data. It allows you to print the color document in monochrome.

  • When the Grayscale Printing check box is checked, the printer driver processes image data as sRGB data. In this case, actual colors printed may differ from those in the original image data.
    When using the grayscale printing function to print Adobe RGB data, convert the data to sRGB data using an application software.

  • During Grayscale Printing, color inks may be used as well as black ink.
