Re: dpi for digital negatives

I thought Marilyn was asking what is the best print setting, not what is the best file resolution (which would be expressed in ppi not dpi). If she's asking what's the best file resolution, then I'd agree it doesn't need to be more than 360, but if she's asking what's the best printing resolution, I'd say the best resolution the printer is capable of.

If you are printing the negative on an inkjet printer there is no need to use more than 360 dpi at the printing size for Epson printers.

You would need more resolution if making the negatives with other types of output, imagesetter, Lambda, etc.

Can I ask what dpi setting is the best for non-silver, digitally printed negatives, please?
