Image forming apparatus

画像形成装置

Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an image forming apparatus which achieves resource saving by urging a user to use a printing function contributing to reduction of printing paper or developer. SOLUTION: The image forming apparatus 1 is equipped with: a communication part 25 being a data input part which receives a printing job having image data to be used for printing; a storage part 24 in which the printing job received through the communication part 25 is stored; and a control part 21 which, when the storage part 24 receives a plurality of printing jobs, compares the printing conditions of the plurality of printing jobs with one another, sets printing order to each printing job so as to give priority to the printing job contributing to the reduction of the printing paper and/or the developer, based on the printing conditions, and informs a command destination of each printing job of the printing order. Thus, the image forming apparatus 1 performs printing by processing the printing job contributing to the reduction of the printing paper and/or the developer preferentially to the other printing job.
