A printer includes an expendable supply, a detector that detects at least one of a power-on operation, a resume from an energy-saving mode and a new installation of an expendable supply, a determiner that determines whether or not a recommended limit of the expendable supply has passed, a warning generator that generates a warning for notifying that a usable limit of the expendable supply will come soon if the recommended limit has already passed, and a memory storage that stores a warning cycle and a last warning generation. When the recommended limit has passed and the power-on operation, the resume or the new installation is detected, the warning generator generates a warning [1] when the last warning generation is not stored in the memory storage, or [2] when the last warning generation is stored in the memory storage and the warning cycle has elapsed from the last warning generation.

When a face of a paper sheet to be discharged on which an image is formed faces downward, a paper discharge device divides an image region of image data on the paper sheet to be discharged into areas along a discharge direction, detects an area in which maximum image density for each divided area is higher than or equal to a specified threshold, and controls a discharge angle so that the detected area does not come into contact with a stacked paper sheet until the paper sheet to be discharged has been discharged from a discharge roller.

A paper discharge device including discharge rollers that discharge a paper sheet and a paper discharge tray on which discharged paper sheets are stacked further includes a control unit that controls the discharge angle of a paper sheet according to at least the stacked amount of paper sheets that are stacked on the paper discharge tray so that the position at which the front end of a paper sheet to be discharged begins to come into contact with the stacked paper sheets on the paper discharge tray is within a specified range from the front end of the stacked paper sheets.

An inkjet printer includes a transfer unit that transfers a paper, a print unit that has three or more nozzle rows aligned along a transfer direction of the paper, and a controller that ejects ink on the paper by controlling the print unit while transferring the paper by controlling the transfer unit. The most-upstream nozzle row of the nozzle row and the most-downstream nozzle row are capable of ejecting ink whose color has a lowest brightness among colors of ink to be used for printing. The controller selects the most-upstream nozzle row or the most-downstream nozzle row as a nozzle row for ejecting the ink whose color has a lowest brightness according to a type of the paper. According to the printer, it becomes possible to restrict contaminations on a printed media while also restricting degradation of print quality.

An image processing apparatus calculates a first data amount that is a data amount per page of a print job, and extracts images having a resolution that exceeds a printing resolution from among images included in the print job when the first data amount is greater than a threshold value. The image processing apparatus converts the resolution of the extracted images into the printing resolution, and calculates a second data amount that is a data amount per page of the print job after conversion into the printing resolution. The image processing apparatus causes a user to select an element from among printing speed and image quality when the second data amount is greater than a threshold value. The image processing apparatus reduces the resolutions of the images included in the print job when the selected element is the printing speed.
