NAMEgimpprint-inktypes - Gimp-Print inkset types
DESCRIPTIONGimp-Print supports many different inksets, which are printer type specific. The option names are case sensitive. Two names are listed for each resolution; the first (short) name is the inktype, and the second (long) name is descriptive. Not all ink types are supported on all printers.
Epson and Lexmark (other than the 4076) printersSix color printers can print using four color inks or all six colors. Six color mode is recommended for photographs. Four color mode may be useful when printing text with embedded graphics to reduce ink consumption, or to print higher quality with Ordered, Fast, or Very Fast dithering (see below).
The "Composite" modes use only color inks (no black) to produce all colors and black. These ink types are rarely useful, but on certain types of paper they may produce a smoother image than that produced by mixing black ink in. The Epson Stylus Color 1500 cannot mix black ink with colored inks; on this printer, Three Color Composite must be used.
