AbstractThere is provided a method and device for automatically selecting a gloss finish for a print from an electrophotographic printing machine. The image characteristics and color content are determined and if the characteristics and content exceed a predetermined level, an auto gloss signal is generated by the machine controller. In one instance, a glossy substrate is selected upon which to print the image. In a second instance the fuser is adjusted so as to produce a glossy image output on the substrate. There is also a user selectable mode in which either all prints can be produced on a gloss substrate or on a matte substrate depending on the desired state.
