I don't really speak mm very well, but that sounds like what I get...a larger gap at the end than on the sides. Everyone I know who has an Epson seems to print that way. Can it be "tricked" into running the print out farther, say by telling it that the paper is actually 8.5 x 12 or something? I would just as soon not waste lots of ink and time in trying this if someone has already done so and can tell me if it works and what the dimensions are...

The only way I can think of is if you have roll paper.

Im sorry, I didnt realize that I posted this in the wrong place. I was wondering why it wasnt getting any responses. Now I know.

Personally, now, Im taking my files to a lab and use their 10000 dye sub printer to print the image. It looks like a photograph.

There are also photo printers that will actually expose a photo film sheet from the computer image thus actually giving you a true photograph. I havent used that yet. That seems like overkill seeing how the other printers produce virtually identical results. Certainly good enough for most clients needs.

Epson 2450 negative scanning probs

When I scan a negative, it doesn't seem to come out as clear as the prints do on the 2450. The objects in the picture appear blurred. anyone else had this problem?

Yes Chiquitita. This is the one time Silverfast comes in so handy. It does an excellent job interpreting colour negatives and presenting them with beautiful realistic colours. I find the Epson Twain job on negatives to be less than satisfactory. For regular flatbed and 35mm slides my Epson 2450's native software is excellent.

I have heard rave reviews about silverfast, and I must be using it wrong, because I get better results for negs using the epson software. I changed the setting to they type of film, but the image has a severe blue haze to it.
