NAME
       gimpprint-resolutions - Gimp-Print print resolutions

DESCRIPTION
       Gimp-Print  supports  many  different  resolutions,  which are printer type specific.  The
       option names are case sensitive.  Not all resolutions are supported on all printers.

PRINT RESOLUTONS
   Epson Stylus printers
       Within each specified resolution, the quality is generally listed from worst to best  (and
       generally  higher quality means lower speed).  For example, 360 DPI Unidirectional is usu-
       ally better than 360 DPI.  Characteristics of specific models and individual printers  may
       affect the orderings to some degree; on many printers, with certain papers, unidirectional
       printing will improve quality substantially more than using an  otherwise  better  quality
       printing mode.

       The  difference	between different quality settings lies in the number of passes made over
       each line.  "High" and "Highest" quality settings perform more passes, printing fewer dots
       with each pass over the same line and using different nozzles for each pass.  This reduces
       banding effects, but requires more time.

       Microweave modes use algorithms within the  printer  to	generate  the  sequence  of  rows
       printed.   These  algorithms  generally	only work well at low printing resolutions.  Many
       printers do not support this kind of printing at resolutions of 720  DPI  and  above,  and
       some  printers  that do actually print just one row (using just one nozzle per color) at a
       time.  While this particular use will produce extremely high quality (no  banding  whatso-
       ever,  normally), it is extremely slow and may eventually damage the print head due to ink
       pooling.  All printers that we are aware of have no such trouble at 360 DPI.

       We generally recommend the following resolutions for the following purposes:

	      Resolution   Recommended use
	      ------------------------------------------------------
	      360x90	   Fast economy draft output on plain paper
	      360x120	   (output will be very banded and not very
			   dark).
	      180	   Economy  draft  output  on  plain  paper
			   (output will not be very dark).
	      360x180	   Draft output on plain paper (output will
	      360x240	   not be  solidly  black);  economy  draft
			   output on good quality inkjet paper.
	      360	   Standard  quality  output on plain paper
			   (output will be  solidly  black);  draft
			   output on good quality inkjet paper.
	      720x360	   High  quality  output  on  plain  paper;
			   standard output on good  quality  inkjet
			   paper.
	      720	   Maximum  quality  on  plain	paper; high
			   quality on good inkjet paper; proofs  on
			   photo-quality  paper.  On many printers,
			   there will be little difference  between
			   this and 720x360 on plain paper.
	      1440x720	   High   quality   on	 photo	paper;	use
			   1440x720  Highest  Quality	to   reduce
			   microbanding if needed.  While this will
			   work on plain paper, it  usually  offers
			   little improvement over 720 DPI.

	      2880x720	   Highest  quality  on photo paper.  While
			   this may yield slightly  improved  qual-
			   ity,  it  will generally not be markedly
			   superior to	1440x720  Highest  Quality,
			   except  on the Stylus Color 980 and Sty-
			   lus C70 and C80, where it  may  yield  a
			   noticeable  improvement.   It  takes  as
			   long to print as 1440x720 highest  qual-
			   ity,  but  twice as long to generate the
			   output.
	      1440x1440    An unsupported mode that  offers  higher
			   quality  than 2880x720 for certain types
			   of images on very  high  quality  paper.
			   It  does  not appear to offer any advan-
			   tage on smooth tones,  but  fine  detail
			   (particularly  vertical, and to a lesser
			   extent near-horizontal) it shows notice-
			   able  improvement.	It takes as long to
			   print as  2880x720.	 1440x1440  highest
			   quality takes twice as long to print.
	      2880x1440    An	unsupported  mode  that  may  offer
			   higher quality than 2880x720 for certain
			   types  of  images  on  very high quality
			   paper.  Experiments conducted  thus	far
			   demonstrate	little	if  any improvement
			   over 1440x1440.  It takes twice as  long
			   to  print  as 2880x720 or 1440x1440, and
			   as long to print  as  1440x1440  highest
			   quality.

       The following resolutions are supported on printers other than the Stylus Pro (5000, 5500,
       7000, 7500, 9000, 9500, and 10000) printers.  Resolutions for those printers are listed in
       a later section.  Please see the notes at the end of this section.

       *      This resolution is the default on all printers supporting this setting.

       1      Works  on  printers that have a basic vertical spacing of 1/90".	This includes the
	      Stylus Color, Stylus Color 440, 460, 600, 640,  660,  670,  and  1500,  and  Stylus
	      Photo, Stylus Photo 700, 720, and EX.

       2      Works  on most printers that have a basic vertical spacing of 1/90, 1/180, or 1/360
	      inch.  This includes Stylus Color, Stylus Color 440, 460, 600, 640, 660, 670,  800,
	      850, 900, 980, 1500, 1520, 3000, and Stylus Photo, Stylus Photo 700, 720 and EX.

       3      Works on Stylus C70, C80, and C82; and Stylus Photo 950, 960, 2100, and 2200.

       4      Works  on  older printers with dot spacing of 1/120 inch.  This includes the Stylus
	      Color Pro, Pro XL, 400, and 500.

       5      Works on newer printers with dot spacing of 1/120 inch.  This includes  the  Stylus
	      C20,  C40,  C41,	C42, C60, C61, and C62; the Stylus Color 480, 580, 680, 740, 760,
	      777, 860, 880, 83, and 1160, and the Stylus Photo 750, 780,  785,  790,  810,  820,
	      825, 830, 870, 875, 890, 895, 915, 925, 1270, 1280, 1290, and 2000P, and the Stylus
	      Scan 2000 and 2500.

       6      Works on all printers that do not support variable drop sizes.  This  includes  the
	      Stylus Color, Stylus Color 400, 440, 460, 500, 600, 640, 660, 800, 850, 1500, 1520,
	      and 3000, Stylus Color Pro, Stylus Color Pro XL, and  Stylus  Photo,  Stylus  Photo
	      700, and EX.

       7      Works  on all printers that do support variable drop sizes.  This includes all sup-
	      ported Epson Stylus printers except for those listed in note (6).

       8      Recommended only on processors slower than 200 MHz, the system  is  heavily  loaded
	      with a faster processor, or if problems are experienced at 720x360.

       9      Works  on  all supported printers except for Stylus Color, Stylus Color Pro, Stylus
	      Color Pro XL, Stylus Color 1500, 1520, and 3000.

       10     On printers that do not support variable drop size (see note (4)), this will  print
	      as  fast	as  360 DPI, and faster than 360 DPI High Quality.  It will take twice as
	      long to generate output, which may be important on a heavily  loaded  system  or	a
	      processor slower than 200 MHz.

       11     Works  on  some  older printers, including the Stylus Color, Stylus Color 400, 500,
	      600, 800, 850, 1500, 1520, and 3000, Stylus Color Pro, and  Stylus  Color  Pro  XL.
	      Not recommended except for the Stylus Color, Stylus Color 1500, 1520, and 3000.

       12     Works  on Stylus Color 600, 800, 850, 1520, and 3000.  Not recommended unless other
	      1440x720 modes do not work.

       13     Works on all printers that support  1440x720  DPI.   This  includes  all	supported
	      printers except for the Stylus Color, Stylus Color Pro, Pro XL, 400, 440, 460, 480,
	      500, and 1500, and Stylus Photo.	In addition, this may not work correctly on  Sty-
	      lus Color 1520 and Stylus Color 3000.

       14     This  is	identical  to 1440 x 720 Highest Quality (1440x720hq) on the Stylus Color
	      900.

       15     Works on all printers that support 2880x720 DPI.	This  includes	the  Stylus  C60,
	      C61,  C62, C70, C80, and C82, the Stylus Color 680, 777, 880, 83, and 980, and Sty-
	      lus Photo 780, 790, 810, 820, 825, 830, 890, 915, 925, 950, 960,	1280,  and  1290.
	      This resolution is offered on the Stylus Photo 2100 and 2200, but may not work cor-
	      rectly.

       16     Works on Epson Stylus Photo 825, 830, 925, 950, 960, 2100, 2200; Stylus  C61,  C62,
	      C70,  C80,  C82  ;  Stylus  Pro 7600 and 9600.  This resolution is not supported by
	      Epson on the C70 and C80, but it works correctly on at least some such printers.

       17     These resolutions print at particularly high speed on the Epson Stylus  Photo  950,
	      960,  2100,  and 2200 when printing in Four Color Standard or Three Color Composite
	      modes, or when printing in monochrome or grayscale with any ink type other than Two
	      Level Grayscale, Seven Color Photo, or Quadtone.

       The  Stylus  Pro  printers (Stylus Pro 5000, 5500, 7000, 7500, 7600, 9000, 9500, 9600, and
       10000) support additional microweave modes known as Full Overlap  (FOL),  Four  Pass,  and
       FOL2.   The  Stylus  Pro  5500, 7500, 7600, 9500, 9600, and 10000 additionally have a mode
       called MW2.  These modes can only be used at certain  resolutions.   Stylus  Pro  printers
       support the following resolutions:
