mmm, wonder how that happened. Here's the official word from Epsons site ...
What is the maximum page length for the printer?
The maximum printable page length is 90.5 inches when using the Epson printer driver. This may vary depending on the application, operating system, and driver/RIP being used. Using a RIP may allow you to exceed this limit as well.
I know I've tried a couple of times a while back to go over a hundred inches with no luck.
So you were printing with OS X 10.5.8? Which version of the Epson driver?
I have MacOsX 10.5.2 with 8G RAM
I print from LR 2.4
Epson 9900 with version HW02995,1.12,A000
For the file: the pixel size 5282 x 43176 with resolution 120. This I manged to print.
The printer data of the output tells:
- print time 1:22 (one hour 22 minutes)
- total ink consumption 66.5 ml
- paper size 64297 cm2 (just cheap paper for testing purpose)
I just hang the picture on the wall, it's a full print of the image.
I'll try with a bit higher resolution like 180 and also I'd like to get
a bit bigger one - hight to full 44" which brings the length to 360".
I'm guesing it's more a issue on the file size, not a length issue.
The limit can be in any of the mentioned softaware - where is the first one?
ps. My Mac here is not in the internet and I'm using very slow gprs-connection
for internet with laptop. Email and very, very slow web browsing only.
