Just thought I would let people know that Canon no longer support the latest version of Photoshop for the above printer. I really like the results I have had from the printer and use Canon's 'Easy Photo Print Pro' plug-in which has made life very easy for me. However, on upgrading to CS6 I found the plug-in no longer works, I wrote to Canon to ask when they would be upgrading their software and received the following reply. It would appear that they are no longer interested in supporting their own product and expect Adobe or someone else to do their work for them.
Thank you for contacting Canon Australia.
As you are trying to connect to third party software we are limited on the support we can offer. However please contact Adobe and see if the have an update or plug in you can use.
So will be looking at Epson for a replacement when these cartridges run out

I don't have CS6 and I have Pro 9000 MkII. Could you elaborate a little; why is the plug-in essential for printing from CS6?
I just wonder if there's going to be a problem in future with Lightroom and my printer. So far I have been relatively satisfied, although Canon's paper profiles were not easy to identify (I had a weird red cast in dark parts of an image before finding the correct profile).

I have the original Pro9500 and it is rapidly nearing the end of its days, I have used Canon's plug-in since I bought it - right through CS4 and CS5 and I suppose having set it up to suit in the first place, it has just been an automatic part of my processing procedure. I wouldn't worry about it as it is not essential for printing from CS6, I just found it to be very convenient and easy to use and was annoyed with Canon for not bothering to continue with it into CS6. Their apparent lack of interest in ongoing support for their own products gives me some concern though. There are some very good deals going at the moment in Australia with Epson R2000 and R3000 printers and I am sorely tempted to go for one them. Though I am not sure which one, apart from the R3000 being better for black and white (which I rarely use) I don't know if it has any other advantages.
All the best,
