With the Epson 4800 the max available print resolutionis 360 dpi ifeven I want to print a single 4x6ora 16x24 (inches). I am intrigued by the fact that this is independent of the max print resolution of the Epson driver (1440 or 2880).

Sincerely Yours - Alex

All Epson wide format printers default to 360 PPI for the driver. In the driver options, click "Finest Details" and it'll switch to 720 PPI.

Thanks Mike!

Please be so kind, do you think I have to re-calibrate again including the "Finest Details"?

Accordingto your experience with this printer, printing 16x24 on lustrewilllook much better with 720vs. the native resolution?

Best Regards - Alex

I'm not sure what you mean by "recalibrate" but the only thing you'd have to do with "finest details" is reprofile if you've created your own ICC profile(s). As to which is best, that depends on a lot of factors including the detail available in the original image, type of paper you are using, and distance in which you'll be viewing the print. For a 16x24 print, there probably isn't much benefit in going up to 720. For smaller prints that are viewed closer, there would probably be some benefit.
