Hello
I am trying to print colorful pics on semi glossy paper. I understand the settings that say draft, fine etc but when it says "paper type" like super glossy photo, ink jet or plane paper it doesn't make a visual difference but does one of these paper type settings save on ink? I will be using the same paper but does the glossy setting use more or less ink than the plain paper setting and so on?
Thanks
Rob

If you are using semi glossy, you really need to be off of draft. This is more for black and white or text, where fainter images dont matter. If you are just testing, use normal plain paper and set paper type to match. Generally, any treated paper will use more ink (only slightly) as the droplets need to be more precise.
Whichever type of paper you use, you do need to set it to that paper type. Using a different one changes the settings the printer uses, which means the quality will not be as it should be :)
