Tips for printing To get the best printing results, be sure to read the instruction manual of the application you are using. Information on how to change the resolution and image size is especially important. In addition, read the following tip. Print in an environment with as large color display capability as possible. The number of available colors of some applications is determined according to the display color setting of the PC used in printing. To print the best images possible, it is recommended to print from a system capable of displaying 64000 colors or 16.77 million colors if possible. Adjust the image size and resolution (with an application that prints images according to the resolution of the printer). If the application in use is capable of adjusting the image resolution and size, set the resolution to 320 dpi and the size to 1280 x 960 pixels or smaller. (If the image size in pixels is larger, the image may be printed on more than one sheet of print paper.) 14
