How to get photo-quality printing on HP Inkjet
Posted on 1998-04-04
I have an HP DeskWriter 600 Inkjet printer, and when they show it to you in the shop, they show you pretty impressive printouts, near photographic quality. I can't get it to produce anything LIKE that quality.
Can someone give me a recommendation on the best setup to get a photo-quality printout?
I have Photoshop 4.01 -- what should my settings be for DPI, Printing Inks setup, RGB/CMYK, bleed, transfer, screen, and on the printer, there are settings called intensity and halftoning (pattern or scatter -- is this the same as dithering?)...
I know I'm trying to get a lot for my money, but I must be able to get better results than this without wasting all my money on glossy paper and ink cartidges and getting results that look like they've been dithered all to hell by a 256-color monitor...
