As author of Photoline said ... if there would be enough people to buy Photoline, he would release new Atari version of it.
Photoline is still developed for PC computers.

Try a different Driver. Some are using RLE compression, other different flavor of PCL and it is not always working well with new printer or similar model. Generally I have reasonable results with DJ550C NVDI Driver when printing on my Laserjet color, except that colors are less dense because there is no bleeding on a laser printer compared to an inkjet.


I tried using DJ550C and it printed out some the commands code on both the HP printer and the Ricoh printer.
So that was the reason i did not use it.
So only DJ 1200 driver is working for black & white and 8-colours for me.

Seems like NVDI 4 does True Colour better than NVDI 5.
Now that's what I call progress.... :twisted:
