    You will need to interact with a 3rd party driver, preferably by the company who designed your printer. There should be functions proprietary to that driver that allow you to print out graphics. Other than that you are pretty much stuck. There is not a standard way to print graphics on a printer in DOS. This is why the old print programs used to come with a plethora of printer drivers because w/o them the task at hand would have been impossible.

    Each printer is different and coding for each one would be like trying to code for every single sound card in existence. Not gonna happen.

    So unless you find the driver and the technical documentation for it, you are SOL.
