I had a business meeting with Epson imaging scientists. One of them is the top project leader for all print heads for professional and consumer photo printers. According to them, current native Epson printer’s heads are either 300 dpi or 360 dpi. So long as you are using EPSOM DRIVERS to print your images, your working resolutions should be multiples of these nozzle numbers to have maximum results. So first find your native resolutions of your print head of your printer then work from there. If you can afford, 720 dpi files or 600 dpi (or 1440, 2880 / 1500, 3000 dpi) as higher dpi should create better results if you can afford, though human eyes might not distinguish them comparing to lower res. Most practically, 300 dpi or 360 dpi (or 150 dpi or 180 dpi) should be good. However, if you use 3rd party professional RIP's, things are different. You have to use different algorism that I posted in past here, which I could not find it yet….

So I apologize my prior comments for this matters..., which was only referred to 3rd party RIP's.
