       gimpprint-mediatypes - Gimp-Print media types

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

       We have found that glossy photo papers not specifically designed for Epson printers gener-
       ally  perform poorly in Epson printers.	The ink tends to pool on the paper, causing muddy
       shadows and possibly leaving ink on the printer	rollers.   Use	of  the  highest  quality
       printing  modes	(1440x720  highest quality and 2880x720 unidirectional) produces the best
       result on such papers, probably because printing is slower and there is more time for  the
       ink to dry.
