I'm looking for opinions (or facts) on which of the following methods will result in the best quality print from an Epson printer. I scan at 4000 DPI, do all my adjustments in Photoshop including cropping and now want to make a print that is 8" wide. There are two ways I can obtained the 8 inches. 1) In Photoshop, pick an image DPI that is a multiple of 60, like 240, 300, 360 etc. that gives an image that is close to 8" and then resample to get the 8 inches. After the resample I would sharpen and mask the sharpen layer to get the sharpening where I want it. This method is based on my understanding that Epson printers want DPI's that are multiples of 60. 2) In Photoshop, leave the DPI at 4000, sharpen and mask as before. When it is print time, pick the DPI that gives the 8" dimension. This might be an oddball DPI like 373. This forces the Epson driver to deal with a DPI that is not a multiple of 60. The second method has a decided advantage if you want several different sized prints from the sample file. It really comes down to resample in Photoshop or let the Epson deal with odd ball DPI's. Any ideas on which would give the best quality print? Joe, tired of masking after resampling, Mead - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
