    It would appear you have not carefully read and/or understood my response to Jens Broggard above.

    Re: How does Epson Print Layout determine print resolution?

    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.

    Re: Epson P900 Firmware update?
    Reply #3 on: May 16, 2024 at 6:55 pm

    Just search for all the folks complaining after blindly updating their Epson firmware, it’s eye opening. Yeah, if and when we are told why (new media I need), OK. Otherwise potentially bricking my printers blindly when they run just fine seems unnecessary and potentially dangerous.

    I had three URLs pointing out such issues, but this forum software tells me this site needs some firmware fixes <g>

    Andrew – typically Epson does not tell us why – at least in English on English language websites. We are left with taking their word for it. My experience with Epson firmware updates is the same as Kevin’s – never had a problem with it. I have had major problems updating both Apple and Adobe software – and the forums I believe are replete with far more complaints about those than they are with Epson firmware. I would add as well that with Epson software we have two animals: the firmware and the driver. From what I’ve observed more issues get fixed up-dating drivers than firmware, but I can’t claim any expertise on the exact division of labour between the two.

    Printer firmware updates are much less of a problem than MacOS updates. The latter are the ones one really has to be careful about.
