You do not need a design program such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop to print to the LX800-810. If your label design is already in a format that can be viewed by MAC Preview such as JPG, TIFF, BMP, or PDF you can print directly from Preview. Follow these steps:

These instructions are specifically for OS 10.4.x

1. Double click on the image to automatically open it in Preview. (If the image does not open in Preview, open Preview by browsing to Applications - Preview. Go to the File menu - choose Open - Browse to the file.)

2. To print you must first change the Page Setup. Go to the File menu - choose Page Setup. Change Format for to "Color Label Printer"

3. Change Paper Size to correspond with the label size in the printer. Choose from one of the predefined label sizes on the list or click "Manage Custom Sizes" to create a Custom label size. For this example we will use a 5x4 Label.

4. To print, go to File menu - choose Print. If you do not need to change Print Quality settings, you may print directly from this screen by clicking Print. Check the orientation. The label will print as shown on screen. If there is any white space around the label, you may need to adjust the orientation. Adjust the number of copies on this screen. If you need to adjust Print Quality settings click Advanced.

5. The printer settings screen will default to Copies and Pages. Click the drop down arrow to change the settings screen to Label Printer Settings. (Note: If you are using OS 10.2 or 10.3 this screen will display instead of previous screen when clicking File - Print.)

6. Change your printer settings accordingly. For more information on Label Printer settings click here. Click print to print your image from this screen.
