    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    This is amazing information. Thank you. Is it possible to add a dithering algorithm to photoshop or do I need to work the with the options available?

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    Hi Peter, I'm wondering if you ever got a good print with the 1018? thanks!

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    I was hoping it was a setting since I am getting that result on two different printers. The 6L and 1200 laserjets printed smooth with regular size images and the 1018 and M28w print with the dots and lines showing. I tried pdfs with photoshop (cs5), preview and acrobat reader. Very similar...

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    Yes, I would typically leave the document print size at 8.5" x 11" etc. but increase the resolution. This time I kept the dpi of the full document to 300 with the page size at 25.5" x 33" but printed 'to fit' a 8.5" x 11". The print resolution showed as 943 ppi. I also tried 600 dpi with the...

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    :) Thank you. I did increase the image to 2000dpi, keeping the same print size / canvas size. I also tried printing as a pdf, and in another app. The print remained dotty. The result of your print looks great! So you think that the issue is somewhere in my settings and not the capability of...

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    I'm sorry - there was a typo on my part. For me, the image alone is 1.5cm in height and I print it at 94%. I am surprised that it is printing so large for you. Sorry to use up so much toner! And that is also why I am surprised that I can't get the image to print without dots or lines on my...

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    Thanks for this! Yes, they are quite different. Seeing yours and the prints from @The Hat , what seems to be surprising is how well the 6L prints in comparison to the other laser prints. Perhaps it's not as good for text - I don't use it for text, but the images are so smooth. Just the image...

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    Thank you for that! Too bad I can't use inkjet prints because they are great.

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    @The Hat Thanks for your response! Re DPI, I usually only need a 300dpi image for the 6L. I tried 300, then 1000, then 2000 for the M28. That second point is interesting...however, the outline of the images on the 1018 and M28 are jagged (more noticeable in some other image samples). I'm...

    Why does my old HP 6L print images better than my newer HP laserjets?

    Hi! I've always used an HP 6L to print small detailed images for my jewellery design business. I've been having new issues with the printer and so I've started trying to find a replacement. Both my HP 1018 and HP MFP M28w print fine except that with images, you can see the dots. The images are...
