There is also some possible interaction with the printer dpi settings, in that some settings (e.g. 1440 dpi) may not be allowable with some media settings (e.g. plain paper.) This suggests some other possibilities, namely varying the dpi settings. I just finished making some prints on Heavyweight Matte Paper. I normally use the 1440 dpi setting for this paper, but it seemed to result in too much ink in black areas, so I made this batch of prints using the 720 dpi setting--seemed to reduce the problem somewhat with minimal effect on the prints otherwise. (Can't see much difference between 720 and 1440 dpi on matte papers anyway.) Gary Hunt <email@example.com> - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
