    If I make a soft proof in Lightroom and go to print module choose the resolution I want, then export that photo to Epson Print Layout, I assume that it will print at the resolution I chose in Lightroom. Is this a correct assumption?

    As far as I know, yes. That pixels per inch resolution is determined in the image editing application; again, my understanding: the printer software then determines the numerous colour ink dots that will be used to render each pixel’s colour on paper.

    I noticed that Mr Schewe’s article was published in 2011 which made me curious.

    In the last 13 years has anything changed in the print pipeline? .. Do all those numbers and methods still apply with the latest Epson and Canon Printers.

    Thank you Mr Rodney … appreciate you time.. I’ve been adhering to those guidelines for many years it’s good to know I’m still doing it correctly. Every now and then I get fooled by technology advancements that are changed without knowing about it and find I’m doing something wrong that was right just a year ago…ha…

    Cheers,
