is this a self publish job or one by a commercial printer? if it's by a
commercial printer, i would check with them and see what resolution the
images need to be. i have never used anything over a 300 dpi image for
any print job (home or commercial) and i always got good results. my
printer is a 1440 dpi rez. never had need to use it that high.
