Printing a high resolution image
Posted on 2000-05-14
Hi ! I have problem in printing high resolution images.
I'm trying to print a A4 Size 300dpi bitmap image to some different colour printers. However, I never print anything out succesfully. (The printer does not printout anything at all). The printers I used are SONY UDP-8800 (a professional photo printer with 30mb RAM on board), HP PhotoSmart (an ink-jet printer with NO on board memory).
If I lower the original image resolution to say 100dpi, then I can printout the image successfully. Or if I make the size of the original image smaller and then enlarge it to A4 output size.. then it's ok too..
However, if I use photoshop to print the original high resolution A4 image, I can print it out properly....
Can anyone tell me why is it and how to solve it?
I'm using the following code in my printing function to load and print the image:
My friend has written another Borland C Builder application to do the same job and he got the same problem.
