epson printer settings

  joeltr 13:56 29 Aug 2004

i bought some ilford photo paper yesterday 238msg, inside the packet were some settings for printers, i just wanted to relay the tips for epson inkjets, my epson is an all in one cx3200,it isnt listed, but the c62 is as they use the same carts i thought i would try the settings, which were paper setting, photo quality gloss film, i know its best to try different settings, but i never for one moment thought about the gloss film setting for paper, i thought it was an option for t-shirt printing or the like, i just wanted to let interested printer users know the results are absolutely outstanding, the best pics i have produced, i use choice inks and with the usual settings sometimes they were a bit grainy looking, but these are perfect, hope this helps, regards , joel.

Your are absolutly bang on Joel
Film setting for gloss paper is wizard for all my Epson printers.
Apart from the quality there is less ink sloshing around too- save loads on ink what ever the source.

Thanks for that, I too never thought of even trying this setting for paper. I'll give it a go the next time I'm printing some pics.

im not sure if it works for every epson printer, but its worth a try, im really pleased with the results, there was another tip from ilford, it said to disable high speed option, joel.

Will give it a try - to my postings!

hope it works on your printer, i cant believe the difference, it slows the printer down a bit, but the end result was really impressive, joel.
