I have an Epson 1200. This is where the European/metric paper sizes (eg. A4) are really nice -- aspect ratios that match 35 mm very closely. I recently encountered this on some Olmec paper samples sent from England. As we speak, I'm rattling off a 10.7" x 15.8" print, on 11x17" paper (US "B" size) from a 35 mm image. On letter-size paper, the actual image size is usually around 7" x 10.25" or so. rafe b. - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
