This article explains how to adjust the ink intensity when printing with the MAXIFY MB2320 on a macOS.



Adjusting Intensity

You can dilute (brighten) or intensify (darken) the colors of the overall image data during printing.
The following sample shows the case when the intensity is increased so that all colors become more intense when the image data is printed.


No adjustment

Higher intensity


The procedure for adjusting ink intensity is as follows:

You can also set intensity on the Quick Setup tab by choosing Photo Printing under Commonly Used Settings, and then choosing Color/Intensity Manual Adjustment under Additional Features.

  1. Select Color Options from the pop-up menu of the Print Dialog.

  2. Moving the Intensity slider to the right intensifies (darkens) the colors, and moving the slider to the left dilutes (brightens) the colors.
    You can also directly enter a value linked to the slider. Enter a value in the range from -50 to 50. The current settings are displayed in the settings preview on the left side of the printer driver.

  3. Complete the setup

    Click Print.
    When you execute print, the image data is printed with the adjusted intensity.


  • If you select ColorSync for Color Matching, then Intensity appears grayed out and is unavailable.
