It is hard to tell. In the end, theoretically, they both print a dot of the same area, but different shape. There could be some additional aspects like paper absorption that could make a difference in how the dots are perceived. But this is just an assumption. If you are choosing between two printers with the exact same specs except for this resolution, I ...

Technically, 4800 dots translates to more detail, but there will probably not be a noticeable difference unless you're doing microprinting. 1200 dpi provides a lot of printed detail, and 2400 is probably above the threshold of what the human eye can detect. Printing at 4800 dpi is probably overkill in that regard. If you don't notice a visible difference, ...

There is no comparison. 2400x2400px @ 300dpi = 8x8 inch print image 1200x4800px @ 300dpi = 4x16 inch print image Neither is "better". They are completely different proportioned images. Which one may work better for your needs, only you can determine. To see print sizes.. Just do the math... 2400px ÷ 300ppi = 8 (8 inches) 1200px ÷ 300ppi = 4 (4 ...

The first value is usually Dots Per Inch in the X axis, and the second is amount in the Y axis (but I've seen someone stating the first value is vertical and second is horizontal but I guess it depend on position of paper[?]). So in the printing process the 2,4k x 2,4k would have same amount of dots in the "rows" and "columns". In the second case (I assume ...

6, 8, 10, 12-color process. CMYK is referred to as 4-color process. So simply change the 4 to how many ever colors you are running. Of course, the natural follow up question is going to be "what are the [ additional ] colors?" So, you should be prepared :) If these were spot colors, then it would still be referred to as a 6-color job.. but not "process". ...

CMYK isn't the name of the gamut (=color range) that printing with cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks can achieve. Every practical implementation of that printing idea has different gamut. CMYK is the established name of the physical idea how colors can be created from white light by inserting cyan, magenta and yellow filters + opaque black dots with ...

I export from Illustrator to several different specs, one of which is png and jpg at 144ppi for one developer. You can do this all in Illustrator. From in your Illustrator document: File > Export > Export As... check "Use Artboards" and select your range or all. Select Export and you'll get the png options window, which allows you to select a predetermined ...

Let me be specific. That is no printing process, that is a pre-press process, so the printing process or press comes after these. And as already stated by my colleges, the printing process is offset printing. (I will leave the lithography term for later) Some of those steps can still be used today. Let me explain a bit. A. The first step is almost ...

You're describing offset lithography. The maroon (and silver) metal plate was the actual printing plate made by a photomechanical process in a process camera then in a contact printing frame 1:1. In the printing press, the plate is wet with a "fountain" solution. The silver part (zinc-coated aluminum foil) remains wet. The pink parts are water-resistant so ...

That's a version of how printing used to look between lead type and word processors. You'd have someone type up the copy on a typesetting machine, which would produce long strips of copy in a particular letterface at a specified pitch (point size). The paper was not quite vinyl, but definitely sturdier than paper, and coated so it was a bit waxy. You'd use ...
