How to Print an Image from ImageBrowser EX on Your Canon EOS 6D

By Doug Sahlin

Your Canon EOS 6D allows you to print an image you select in ImageBrowser EX on your local printer. You get the best results when printing a JPEG image. If you attempt to print a RAW image from within ImageBrowser EX, the application uses an embedded JPEG thumbnail that was designed to be used as an image preview.

If you try to print large images from RAW files, you probably won’t be happy with the results. You get the best results when you print RAW images from within Digital Photo Professional. To print an image from ImageBrowser EX:

  1. Launch ImageBrowser EX and then select the image you want to print.

    You can select the image while viewing a folder in Thumbnail or Preview mode.

  2. Click the Print button and then select Print Images.

    The Photo Print dialog box appears.


  3. Click the Printer drop-down arrow and choose the desired printer.

    Your default printer appears on the button. If you have more than one printer, you’ll find them on this drop-down list.

  4. Click the Page Setup button.

    A dialog box with properties for your printer appears. Use this to match the media size to what you have in your printer tray, specify page layout, and so on. The options vary depending on the printer you use. Choose the desired options and close the dialog box.

  5. (Optional) To display the shooting date and time on the image, click the Shooting Date/Time drop-down arrow.

    When you choose this option, a drop-down menu becomes available with the following options: None (the default), which does not print the date and time; Date/Time, which prints the date and time; Date; or Time. The date and time are with the image metadata. If you choose this option, a preview of the date and time appear on the preview of what the final print looks like.

  6. (Optional) If you choose to display the date on the image, click Properties.

    This opens the Shooting Date/Time Settings dialog box. The options, which enable you to change the text outline, text color, time and date separator, and the position where the date and time appear on the image are fairly self-explanatory.


  7. (Optional) Click the Cropping Settings button if you want to trim the image.

    The Cropping Settings dialog box opens. From this dialog box you can choose to automatically crop the image, which eliminates a white border around the image, or choose not to crop the image.

  8. Click the Insert Text button to add text to the image.

    The Insert Text dialog box opens.


  9. Click inside the image where you want the text to appear and then type the text in the text box.

    Four handles appear around the text box. The text box resizes while you type. After you click inside the image you can enter text into the image and the options to change the font type, size, and color appear.

  10. Accept the default font type as well as size and color, or specify different options.

  11. 11. If you added comments to the image, the Comments button is available. Click the button to add the comments to the text box.

  12. Click inside the text box and drag it to the desired position and then click OK.

    You return to the Photo Print dialog box.

  13. Specify the number of copies to print.

    The default is one copy; however, you can print additional copies by entering the desired amount in the text box or by clicking the spinner buttons.

  14. Click the Print button.

    The selected printer prints the image.
