Also check to see that in resizing a file you haven't wound up with a resolution with some decimal places. All my microbanding problems have been file-related- a bad scan; or choosing the wrong printer profile or "same as source" instead of "printer color management"; or, most recently, when I found that the resolution had somehow gotten to 359.342 or something. Changing it to 360 and letting the dimensions shift to wherever fixed the problem. James Irelan - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
