    epson 9800 pro (90.50 inches limit)

    Hi,

    I have a epson 9800 pro, but I cant print more than 90.50 inches height in my windows xp.

    I can I resolve this? There are any software (free) that should fix this?

    Best regards,
    Paulo Fonseca

    Try Qimage. You can print up to 50 feet. There is a free trial download. http://www.ddisoftware.com/qimage/ It's the least expensive solution that I know of. Costs between $50-80 depending on the version. There are free upgrades for life.

    You print from the software. You can use the canned profiles in the driver or use custom made ones. Qimage does a lot more than just make large prints. You will have to see it to understand. The download is free. There are features on it that I don't even use and I've been using it for over 5 years. It's a very powerful tool and it doesn't cost a bundle. The tools that you use to edit your file will not permanetly change the file. Meaning you can always go back to the original. You can work with color, levels, curves, sharpening and cropping. You can make layouts of various size images and different images all on the same page. The interpolation program is terrific. I have made 1 kilobyte files into 20 foot banners with it. Just too numerous to mention all it's capabilities here.

    Pretty much all the RIPs will get you beyond Epson's 90.5" limit.

    Qimage or a rip is pretty much mandatory if you're printing from a PC. Qimage is great and should be tried before an expensive rip.

    Make your job at 50% and than send it at 200% to the printer. Be sure to have enough resolution.

    This method worked for me at my HP 755. It might do the trick for you
