Re: laser printer for diginegs
The printer has a native resolution of 1200 DPI. What settings in
Photoshop do you suggest? 300 DPI in the image size dialog? I've been
working with the Epson 2100 inkjet printer with Quadtone RIP for digital
negatives; inkjet printers seem to be the generally used devices for
digital negative production.
In what way horrible? Is the 1200dpi interpolated or native?
