imagePROGRAF Pro-4000, Print Studio Pro .dpi & 'fine' print quality: setting #1?

howdy  Smiley Happy

 

 

has anyone been able to print out at .dpi's higher than 240dpi using the imagePROGRAF Pro-4000 & Print Studio Pro?  if so, how are you obtaining the higher .dpi?

 

has anyone been able to select the high quality 'fine' setting?

 

ive sent several images from lightroom & photoshop to 'print studio pro' at various dpi but PSP still only shows .dpi of 240 regardless of image dpi, size, ppi

 

thank you in advance!  Smiley Happy

Hello.

 

The DPI for an image cannot be adjusted in the Print Studio Pro program.  You may achieve better results be enabling the "Always print in the finest quality setting" option which is located in the Advanced Print Settings dialog

 

The "Fine" quality option is only available with certain media types.

 

If additional assistance is needed, find more help at Contact Us.

Based on my experience, other than specialty features, like the Pattern Print, PSP doesn't do anything for general printing that you can't achieve in Lightroom or Photoshop. Its primary advantage is for folks who don't know how to configure the printer diver; PSP throws all the correct "switches" to avoid double profiling.

i spoke with canon support, they were very helpful & confirmed that:

 

1. going from Lightroom 6.x to Canon Print Studio Pro, .dpi is not being respected & defaults to 240dpi regardless of .dpi of image, they will investigate further. confirmed.

 

for the time being, the work around is to print from Lightroom to imageGRAF Pro-4000 without taking the image to Print Studio Pro

 

2. going from Photoshop to Print Studio Pro, .dpi is respected via the Canon Print Studio Pro plug-in PS>File>Automate>Canon Print Studio Pro... confirmed.

 

3. also confirmed, the High Quality "Fine #1' setting in Print Studio Pro is grayed out & unable to access regardless of paper types (default pro papers)

 

side note, was very impressed with canon's technical support, wow!   Smiley Happy

An advantage of printing directly from Lightroom is that LR output sharpening is applied. I have run several tests and see no quality advantage using PSP vs LR. I set my dpi at 300 in LR and use the Canon XPS driver ( Windows 7 computer). 

 

I have also also run tests printing from LR with LR output sharpening, without output sharpening and using Nik Output Sharpening plugin. 

 

I found the differences subtle, but LR sharpening produces the best results for my printing.
