       gimpprint-imagetypes - Gimp-Print image types

       Gimp-Print  includes several image types which can be used to optimise the dither, depend-
       ing on the type of image you wish to print.

       Possible values are:

       Value   Description
       1       Line art (color or gray scale)
       2       Primarily solid colors or smooth  gradi-
	       ents (color or gray scale)
       3       Continuous-tone	photographs  (color  or
	       gray scale)

       Option 0 is the fastest.  It generates strong,  but  not  particularly  accurate,  colors.
       There may be some fairly sharp color transitions in this mode.

       Option 1 generates more accurate colors, but is slower.

       Option 2 generates the most accurate colors, but is considerably slower.

       Note  that  any	of  the  modes may be used with either color or black & white output.  If
       black and white output is requested, but a  color  mode	used,  composite  color  will  be
       printed.  This generally offers smoother tone, but less purity of gray or black, than pure
       black ink.  Furthermore, it is possible to tune the color of the gray (to  achieve  warmer
       or cooler effects) using the color controls in this fashion.
