George,

Thanks for the in-depth explanation. One more question for you though. How did you arrive at the numbers you divide into the printer resolutions....(8 divided into 1440), 240 (6), 360 (4), and 720 (2). If using the 720 printing resolution, (6 divided into 720) 240 (3) or 360 (2) ?

Larry

George, Thanks for some GREAT information! I'll definitely be keeping that handy for whenever I get a new printer (most likely an Epson 1280). -Jeanie

Larry:

The numbers were given to me by both the Epson engineer and the other technical individuals I talked to. They all recommend the 240 or 360. In the discussion they they said the lower numbers did not work as well and the higher number created a file that was to large in regards to any improvement in the print, so I decided to test all of them. My test just proved to me that the 240 and 360 they recommended really worked best for what I was doing. I am not sure how they came up with the numbers.

My prints also improved when I loaded the Epson paper profiles, set up Photoshop to proof in these profiles and then print using the profiles based on the paper type I was using. I print using the Epson matte paper most of the time.

George,

Thanks for the info. I'm using an Epson 1280, and I love it. I downloaded some profiles from a web site, and they work great. I also do some printing to cloth canvas. Using the profiles I downloaded they are nearly a perfect match to what I see on my screen.

Ed,

Thanks, and you're right, I really don't remember. I believe the site was a link to one of the PS sites. Be glad to email them to you if you want. Let me look through my bookmarks too, and I'll let you know if I find it.

Larry

Thanks Larry. But you didn't have to go through all that trouble. I *will* have a look. Thanks again.
