August, Things move quickly. Inkjet printers have come a long way in the past few years. Recently while preparing some presentation prints I decided to see for myself how the current state-of-the-art in each area compared. For this comparison I chose one of my favourite recent images. Hidden Colour, A larger version my be seen by clicking on the above image. The file was reduced to dpi, because my tests have shown that the printer can not use higher res files than this — they simply slow down the printing process.
How Do They Look? Firstly, it needs to be said that both prints are excellent. They are also almost identical in colour and tonality, with the LightJet print showing the yellow Aspen leaves in the background as somewhat more orange that did the Epson.
The next critical question is, did the Epson print look like any different than the LightJet in terms of apparent resolution, dot visibility or other artifacts? The answer is a loud and resounding NO!

Pictorico Hi-Gloss did very poorly. This has caused me to rethink my comments above. While an Epson print on Pictorico Hi-Gloss film does indeed produce a print with excellent image quality the fact that it appears to be subject to fading at such a rapid rate really makes it less appropriate for some applications that it otherwise would be.
Not when it will likely fade in a few years, even under indoor conditions. LightJet prints ganged-up on larger paper for economy printing are therefore the best option at the moment. But, having said that, let me confuse you further.
