Epson Releases New 'EasyPrint' Utility

Printer maker Epson America, Inc. announced Tuesday a new Macintosh software utility that embeds the most important print settings directly into a software applicationis Print screen user interface, eliminating the need for most users to select print settings from an Epson printer driver.

Epsonis EasyPrint utility is a free download for Mac OS X 10.2 or later.

Epson EasyPrint also has the capability to avoid conflicts between software application and printer software settings by ensuring that software application and printer driver settings match. For example, if a setting is changed in the printer driver, the application software automatically changes the settings as well. Conversely, changes made to settings in the application software are automatically changed in the printer driver.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0, Epson Smart Panel 3.2 and Epson Copy Utility 3.0 currently support Epson EasyPrint. Additional software applications will be announced at a later date, the company said.

Epson EasyPrint supports the following Epson printers: Stylus C64, C84, Stylus Photo 900, 960, 2200, R200, R300/R300M, R320, R800, Stylus CX6400, CX4600, CX6600, and Photo RX500.
