AuthorSubject: ImagePrint 1440 8-pass vs 4-pass printing   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Posted on Sun Nov 2, 2003 7:19 PM

I have the following note on my computer which came either -- I don't remember -- from John at ColorByte or Andrew Rodney:

<<<8-pass offers a higher level of micro weave which allows for dots to dry completely before new dots get laid down. This is helpful on papers that don't dry well. All Epson Premium papers will work perfect at 4 pass.>>>

Iíve been printing at 8-pass but yesterday printed at 4-pass by mistake on Epson Premium Semi-Matte. I then made a couple of sets prints at both 4-pass and 8-pass. One set of prints looked the same at 4-pass and 8-pass while another set look slightly smoother at 8-pass, although the difference seems so small that I have (neurotically!) a problem to be certain there is really a difference. Any views on 4-pass vs 8-pass printing on papers such as Semi-Matte as opposed to other papers?

(BTW, on the issue on whether to print at 2880 with IP, it seems that IP prints bettter at 1440 rather than at 2880. The latter resolution is there only because some people wanted it, but it should be avoided.)
