It handles conversion to CMYK... but if you are printing to an Epson, you have to send RGB data to the printer.. (but for the experiment user trying new things) so part of what Photoshop is capable is useless for you. If Photoshop offers more controls this does also mean that its learning curve is higher than others... > I'm wondering if some of the dithering I'm seeing > are actually artifacts created by PSP when scaling > to the size of the page. > Photoshop is good at sampling images up and down. However the differences may not be so stricking with another programs.. may be you tried to do wrong things with your scanner... 1) Rule : upsampling an image is never a good idea.. 2) In order to print to an Epson, you need a resolution between 240 and 300 dpi : this will be your scanning resolution provided you reproduce your picture to the same size.. other multiply this resolution by the scaling factor. Do also check the size of your picture in inches... 3) How was your picture saved ? High JPG compression will results in artifacts.. Also never save a JPG file twice ... -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Please: Stay on topic. Trim quoted messages. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
