Creating Printing Data on Mac (HP T1530)

Installing HP PostScript Driver

Download a printer driver for Mac at the URL below:

In the linked site, choose your language and OS first.

In the list of drivers, click "Driver - Product Installation Software", download both "Mac HP Designjet Raster Driver" and "HP Designjet Mac PostScript Driver".

Graphic design applications, including Illustrator and Photoshop, are specifically designed to fit in the PostScript environment. Thus, the PostScript driver is preferable when you expect higher processing efficiency and printing quality, while the raster driver is preferable when you use the other applications including PowerPoint.

Open one of the downloaded installer (Here we assume the raster driver. You may install the other driver in the same way.), run "Mac OS X Designjet installer" and click "続ける(Continue)".
