       gimpprint-inktypes - Gimp-Print inkset types

       Gimp-Print  supports  many different inksets, which are printer type specific.  The option
       names are case sensitive.  Two names are listed for each  resolution;  the  first  (short)
       name  is  the  inktype,	and the second (long) name is descriptive.  Not all ink types are
       supported on all printers.

       recommended for photographs.  Four color mode may be useful when printing text with embed-
       ded graphics to reduce ink consumption, or to print higher quality with Ordered, Fast,  or
       Very Fast dithering (see below).

       The  "Composite"  modes	use  only  color inks (no black) to produce all colors and black.

       smoother  image	than  that  produced by mixing black ink in.  The Epson Stylus Color 1500
