HP Designjet 5000PS Printers - Driver Overview for Macintosh Users

Introduction
This document lists the system requirements and color printing options for the HP Designjet 5000 PS3 printer driver for Macintosh. For more detailed information, refer to the Read Me file found in the installation program, or refer to the HP Designjet Printing Guide available on the Apple menu.
System requirements
The HP Designjet 5000 PS3 driver requires the following hardware and software:
  • An Apple Power Macintosh computer running Mac OS 8.1 or later (HP Designjet 5000 PS3 does not run on Macintosh 68 K computers)
  • 4 MB or more of available memory
  • 1 MB of available hard disk space
  • Space as needed for PostScript (R) Printer Description (PPD) files
  • Apple ColorSync 2.0.1, if using Adobe PS ColorSync features (AdobePS does not support ColorSync 1.x)
Print color and printer profile options
Use the Print Color and Printer Profile options in the Color Matching panel of the Print Dialog box to specify whether and how to print a document in color. Generally, without a thorough understanding of working with color, use the Adobe PS default values for these options.
  • Color/Grayscale - This option enables AdobePS to send color data to color printers or equivalent grayscale data to monochrome printers. The Color/Grayscale option produces better black-and-white output than the Black and White option does, even on monochrome printers.
  • Black and White - This option limits printing to monochrome only. Use this option for output identical to the output available from using the Apple LaserWriter 7.x printer driver with black-and-white printers.
  • ColorSync Color Matching - This option enables a Macintosh to convert from one color representation to another (for example, from monitor color to printer color) using color-rendering dictionaries that reside on the Macintosh. This option is only available if the Apple ColorSync software is installed. If the Macintosh processor is faster and more powerful than that of the printer, choose this option because it will improve overall color-printing performance.
  • PostScript Color Matching - This option enables the printer to convert from one color representation to another (for example, from monitor color to printer color) using color-rendering dictionaries that either reside on the printer or are downloaded from the computer to the printer. Use this option if the printer is not calibrated and uses PostScript Level 2.
