Boy something is wrong with your technique. you should be scanning at at least 1500-2000 DPI for a 6x6 negative if you are printing that large. A 50 Megabyte file isn't large at all for a color image to be printed at 15x11 inches. And they don't take more than about 8 minutes to print on a 1200. I don't know what you are doing wrong, but something isn't correct. I hope you are printing at about 240-300 DPI in your printer settings, and then setting your epson OUTPUT to the 1440 DPI size. Your FILES aren't huge are they? 40-60 megabytes is about normal. How much ram are you giving Photoshop? remember it needs 3 to 5 times as much memory as your FILE size. 160 megabytes devoted to photoshop should be your minimum if you want things to go speedy speedy.... >So why does everybody in the know recommend these HUGE files the largest >of which the 1200 estimated would take 120 minutes to print! NEVER in all my days did I EVER have a print that took more than about 15-20 minutes to print in that size at 1440 DPI! Jerry >T - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
