Epson 7600 Problem

Archived from groups: rec.photo.digital (More info?)

Help!
I need to print a banner from my 7600 of 96".
I am using Illustator 7. It will not allow printing over 60".
I can find nothing in the manual to account for this.
I can work it in Photoshop 5 but it has other sordid problems.
Can anyone help?!
Thanks,
Jake

    You're running into a limitation of the Epson driver.

    QImage can get around it.

    I print from a rip so it may not work as I say but, set the print for 60" print
    at 160%. Or make a Pdf, rasterize in photoshop at 500ppi (dpi in PS). Adjust
    size to 300 or 240 ppi. There are work arounds.

    Your are wrong in your first line Rafe.
    I have a letter from Adobe when I queried the problem my HP plotters have
    printing Photos longer than 1 metre from Photoshop (CS). I guess you're like
    all the other 'Experts" in this group and know better than them eh?

    I cited a link to an Epson Product Support Bulletin,
    which discusses limits imposed by the Epson driver
    and by Photoshop.

    I've made prints on my own Epson 7000 that give the
    lie to your statement about a 4 foot print length limit.

    I obviously can't know what you were told in
    "a letter from Adobe," but the information I
    cited is public. I give no credence to private
    sources of information that can't be shared or
    verified.

    Pardon my intrusion but the thread really was about a 7600 Epson. Rafe's
    dogmatic attitude is as bad or no different than Ryadia's. Neither
    person (even you Tom) were / are talking about the thread's header
    really. Epson 7000 and 9000 are not 7600 are they?

    I've hit the wall with my Canon plotter and Photoshop CS at about 1200
    mm so maybe Ryadia was on to something in the first place? There was a
    thread on the Adobe forums about this a few months back. It seems that
    Photoshop CS does indeed have limitations on the size of paper which can
    be defined by the printer. I too used Corel Draw to get over the
    problem. (I don't have illustrator so I can't comment). I think the
    problem is with using a roll feeder. These things (obviously) are
    variable length but you have to define a fixed length in the document.

    The Epson PDF which I cited (and provided a link
    for) gives print length specifications for all of
    the Epson Wide Format models, from the 4000 on up
    to the 10000, using Photoshop, Corel Draw, Quark
    Xpress, and Illustrator. In Epson's data, there
    is no difference on models from the 7000 on up --
    ie., print lenght limits (using Epson driver) are
    identical for the 7000, 7500, 7600, 9000, 9500,
    9600, and 10000.

    Read the freaking Epson PDF, for crying out loud.
    Unless you'd prefer to argue than actually learn
    something.

    Ahh. Hit a nerve have we? Must drill slower then, in future.

    Do you think I'm going to waste a lot
    of effort arguing with someone who
    can't even spell "disciple??
