The print command in Imerge Pro will print the current viewer contents at any time. Printing is directly linked to the viewer, and is not part of the batch controls. there are several ways to invoke the print command, so you can use whichever is most convenient for you.

  • Click the print canvas icon in the top toolbar of the software interface.
  • Open the project menu, and select the Print… command.
  • Press the keyboard shortcut CTRL+P (CMND+P on Mac).

Printing an image requires only a few basic steps.

  2. The print canvas window opens. Adjust the settings as required.
  3. Click the print button at the bottom of the window to begin printing.

Advanced settings

The advanced settings button provides access to additional settings, which may vary based on the printer you have selected, and the operating system you are running. We can’t discuss every printer on the market, but we will look at the differences between the Windows and Mac advanced settings.

  • Print to File: Use this toggle if you wish to print to a document on your hard drive, rather than printing a physical copy.
