HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series Printer - Manage color

Manage color by changing the settings on the Color tab in the printer driver.

Automatic

Setting color options to Automatic typically produces the best possible print quality for color documents. The Automatic color adjustment option optimizes the neutral-gray color treatment, halftones, and edge enhancements for each element in a document. For more information, see your printer driver online Help.
note:
Automatic is the default setting and is recommended for printing all color documents.

Print in Grayscale

Select the Print in Grayscale option from the printer driver to print a color document in black and white. This option is useful for printing color documents that will be photocopied or faxed.
When Print in Grayscale is selected, the product uses the monochrome mode, which reduces use of the color cartridges.

Manual color adjustment

Use the Manual color adjustment option to adjust the neutral-gray color treatment, halftones, and edge enhancements for text, graphics, and photographs. To gain access to the manual color options, from the Color tab, select Manual, and then select Settings.

Manual color options

Use manual color options to adjust the Neutral Grays, Halftone, and Edge Control options for text, graphics, and photographs.

Setting description
Setting options
Halftone
Halftone options affect the color output resolution and clarity.
  • Smooth provides better results for large, solid-filled print areas and enhances photographs by smoothing color gradations. Select this option when uniform and smooth area fills are the top priority.
  • Detail is useful for text and graphics that require sharp distinctions among lines or colors, or images that contain a pattern or a high level of detail. Select this option when sharp edges and details are the top priority.
Neutral Grays
The Neutral Grays setting determines the method for creating gray colors used in text, graphics, and photographs.
  • Black Only generates neutral colors (grays and black) by using only black toner. This guarantees neutral colors without a color cast. This setting is best for documents and grayscale viewgraphs.
  • 4-Color generates neutral colors (grays and black) by combining all four toner colors. This method produces smoother gradients and transitions to other colors, and it produces the darkest black.
Edge Control
The Edge Control setting determines how edges are rendered. Edge control has two components: adaptive halftoning and trapping. Adaptive halftoning increases edge sharpness. Trapping reduces the effect of color-plane misregistration by overlapping the edges of adjacent objects slightly.
  • Maximum is the most aggressive trapping setting. Adaptive halftoning is on.
  • Normal sets trapping at a medium level. Adaptive halftoning is on.
  • Light sets trapping at a minimal level, Adaptive halftoning is on.
  • Off turns off both trapping and adaptive halftoning.

Color themes

Use color themes to adjust the RGB Color options for the entire page.
Setting description
Setting options
RGB Color
  • Default (sRGB) instructs the product to interpret RGB color as sRGB. The sRGB standard is the accepted standard of Microsoft and the World Wide Web Consortium (http://www.w3.org).
  • Vivid instructs the product to increase the color saturation in the midtones. Less colorful objects are rendered more colorfully. This setting is recommended for printing business graphics.
  • Photo interprets RGB color as if it were printed as a photograph using a digital mini-lab. It renders deeper, more saturated colors differently than Default (sRGB) mode. Use this setting for printing photos.
  • Photo (AdobeRGB 1998) is for digital photos that use the AdobeRGB color space rather than sRGB. When printing from a professional software program that uses AdobeRGB, it is important to turn off the color management in the software program and allow the product to manage the color space.
  • None sets the printer to print RGB data in raw device mode. To render photographs correctly when this option is selected, you must manage color in the program in which you are working or in the operating system.
