  • Page 4 All Epson large format printers use 360dpi as the input resolution (this is the resolution data is rasterized at), therefore when printing from Photoshop, the maximum page length you will be able to output to any Epson large format printer using the standard Epson print driver would be 83.33 inches (30,000 pixels / 360dpi). As for the Epson desktop products, they rasterize data at 720dpi, therefore the maximum page length obtainable with the standard print driver would be 41.67 inches (30,000 pixels / 720dpi).
