Sending
work
to
the
printer

The
BAGC
printers
are
all
black
and
white
A4
printers,
so
don’t
send
anything
in

colour
or
larger
than
A4,
because
the
colour
and
pixel
information
will
be
sent
and

processed,
then
ignored
by
the
printer.
This
means
one
A4
page
could
take
up
to
25

minutes
to
process
and
print,
whereas
the
same
file
sent
as
a
flattened
greyscale

document
will
print
in
2
mins.




When
you
are
ready
to
print
on
a
BAGC
printer:

In
Photoshop,
check
the
image
size:

IMAGE
>
IMAGE
SIZE
‐
make
sure
the
‘Document
Size’
is
no
more
than
A4
(297mm
x

210mm)

turn
the
image
into
greyscale:

IMAGE
>
MODE
>
GRAYSCALE

flatten
the
image:

LAYER
>
FLATTEN
IMAGE



then
print.
