    Printer load balancing



    We have an event coming up where we want to use both our DS40s in tandem to share the printing. Its a manic event and the printing is the bottleneck. We use Lightroom for events. Does anyone have any advice how to automatically share the printing load between the printers. Both will be printing 9x6.

    Windows terminology for this is printer pooling

    Many thanks to John Wright (resident PC guru) for his message - and to Mike Weeks for his call - in getting this sorted.

    Re: Printer load balancing

    I would like to do something similar with darkroom.

    I want to be able to raster print A3
    and also print A3 windows to a Xerox 7760

    any thoughts

    at the moment it sometimes work and other times it doesn't

    should I delete 1?

    thanks

    If both printers are added in as accepting the print size then Darkroom will automatically alternate

    Was the solution unique to Windows or can it be used on a mac running LR ?

    Regards and thanks
