purely curiosity really emoticon




If you could see a difference would you surrender ImagePrint from your workflow ?




if it was as easy yeah sure why not?

Re: Does high dpi make any difference 360/720


My suggestion would be to:

Accurately prepare and sharpen an image at 360 ppi and print it at 16" on the longest side

Accurately prepare and sharpen an image at 720 ppi and print it at 16" on the longest side

Use the same paper, profile and paper settings and then compare them side by side

I thought you said the printer would put it back down to 360?

Re: Does high dpi make any difference 360/720


If you use the RIP it will put it back to 360

Epson printers can use data all the way up to 720ppi.

Anything beyond about 360ppi is pretty much overkill and makes very little contribution to the final dither pattern for photographic usage.

The only place the 720ppi limit is really helpful is with printing binary output, namely solid black lines on pure white.

360ppi for photographic purposes, 720ppi for vector graphics.

So Im guessing you have actually done this already Ian with your own fine art images , to see if fit gave you anything extra?
