Was to either print all one sided then off to the print shop to let them make a double sided copy.
Or the old trick of printing odd pages for about 40 pages, put it back into the printer and print the other side.
But isn't there those POD (print on demand) shops today?
Finished my final book, but have a regular (normal) publisher. Lengthy manuscripts, 1/3 of a page or more of footnotes, and 400+ images. Publisher prints but I need 6 copies as I want them regards general layout. Did for years, 1 for publisher, also for proofreader, copyright, me during production, etc. All Black and white images scanned into my drive. Then inserted where I want, text/image/caption all adjusted as I see them. All done on a Microsoft Word Document, easy. My dinosaur Brother 2070 worked fine, insert photo, adjust, move on.
Last book is huge, a problem to have bound for these few copies as the old printer only printed 1 side. Like a moron I buy a "better" one to print 2 sided. A Brother 5470DW.
At it's lowest setting (300) and lowest density, regardless if graphics or text mode selected, all images are so dark I can barely tell what they are. Unacceptable. Far as I can tell it's reading black and white when it prints rather than grayscale which is how all images (70+ years old) were scanned. No option in the printer to pick grayscale or Black and white. Old printer produced exactly what I need. This thing WAY to dark.
Am I missing something or is a band-aid to software possible ?? I'm ready to return it, my usable 1 sided model probably in the trash. If I can't match what I had in print quality with this thing, can anyone recommend a different model ?? Machine works fine, I assume it is a software issue.
Can't believe I screwed myself up like this, being ready to print this 800 page thing out..
