This class will cover the basic operation of Canon imagePROGRAF PRO and newer model Pixma Pro series of printers. Both have a powerful and FREE program available called Professional Print Layout designed to make your printing experience more streamlined and simple. PPL is available to use as a standalone application allowing you to drag and drop files directly into the program without going through Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. It can also be accessed from within those programs and used as a plug-in. The basis for the program is to allow users to print multiple images on a single page with relative ease, eliminating the need for expensive RIPs designed for this purpose. It is also an excellent printing program for printing individual images on at a time.

Canon PPL is compatible with the following Canon imagePROGRAF Pro Series & Newer model Pixma Pro printers: Pixma Pro-200/300, Pro-1000/2000/4000/6000/2100/4100/6100.

Learn everything from the basics of how to use this program as well as the deep dive into little known features. This workshop is a must for anyone who owns a later model Canon printer. Any and all questions regarding printing on Canon printers are welcome.

Class size is unlimited.
