I once heard that you should set your final image resolution to a whole number fraction of the printer's max DPI. For example if the printer prints at 1140 you have set your image resolution to 360 which is 1/4 of 1440. Sounds like a myth to me, is there any merit to this? Is there any harm in image quality in printing at higher resolutions than necessary?
