The Raster Image Printer will save all output files to the Documents folder (this is the My Documents folder on Windows XP) by default. You can change this to any desired folder on your desktop.

All file output options are controlled through the Printing Preferences dialog. Close any open applications that you are printing from before making changes as most applications will not see your changes until they are re-started.

Step by Step Instructions

 

Changing the save location using the following steps is a global change, meaning that all applications will start with this location in the Save Image As dialog when printing to Raster Image Printer.

 

1.From the Start menu, go to All Programs - Raster Image Printer 11.0 - Properties...

2.Click the Save tab in the Printing Preferences dialog.

 

In the Output Directory field, type in the folder where you want to save your output files. You can also use the Browse... button to find a folder on your computer. If the field is left blank, the Documents folder is used by default. In the above dialog we are creating a new folder C:\Users\Public\Documents\JPG Images\.

3.Click the Apply button and then the OK button to set the changes. If the output directory you typed in does not exist, you will be prompted to confirm creation of the new directory.

4.Printing to Raster Image Printer from any application now displays the Save Image dialog box starting in the directory chosen.

 

Universal Naming Convention

You can also save to mapped network drives and drives specified using Universal Naming Convention syntax.

Commonly abbreviated to UNC, universal naming convention is a common syntax for describing a shared network resource such as a file or directory. The UNC syntax for Windows is

\\ComputerName\SharedFolder\Resource.
