Just finished reading the above link: The Online Photographer. Mike Johnston. Very interesting, but what caught my attention was this response comment:

Dear Bruce K,

"I think it would depend on how long a panoramic you like to make. And how often you make them. I know there's a print length limit on the driver for the 3880, but I just told it to make a 17" x 60" print (16" x 58" image area) and it didn't choke. That's under Snow Leopard; the Windows driver might be different."

With all my 3880 activities, I have never seen this info. The max size I'm aware of and tried was a 17x37 test print containing a small image at each end--just wanted to test the handling and not drain my carts. I have frequently printed 17x25 sized prints without problems, but I'm running Win7x64 not a Mac. Any comments by Mac users? I have constantly read/heard that the limitation is in the hardware, the 3880, not the firmware. Now if the Leopard can achieve this, to me it means Win software can be created to achieve the same result. We are aware that for the 3800 (an earlier Epson software version) a prgm was writ that would allow much longer than 'normal' print lengths to be achieved. The subsequent Epson 'upgrade' prevented this enhanced performance-wonder why??

I welcome responses from Mac owners, especially if you tried to do this--and succeeded!

Thank you irv weiner
