It could be that I have it backwards; but that is not my understanding. My understanding is that the higher number in both the case of scanners and printers reflects the long edge of the media and typically is a multiple of the lower number for the short edge that is a result fo the stepper motor which either puches the paper thru the device in steps or runs the scanner sensors or printhead down the media. But even if you are correct and the larger number is the wide edge, you have to admit that 4800 dpi is relatively low compared to either 14400 or 2880 dpi. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of SKID Photography Sent: Tuesday, June 04, 2002 2:33 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Lexmark Z65 4800 DPI printer Laurie, I think you have that backwards. On an Epson 14440 x 720 dpi, the 1440 dpi goes across the page, and the paper advancing mechanisms limited (until recently) vertical dpi to 720. On the new machines they can do 2880 x1440. The 1440 being the vertical measurement.
