[Text]: [Resolution]*, [Gradation], [Error Diffusion]
[Graphics]: [Resolution], [Gradation]*, [Error Diffusion]
[Image]: [Resolution], [Gradation]*, [Error Diffusion]

This setting specifies how to express halftones.
Settings can be applied separately for text, graphics, and image data.


A dither pattern that gives priority to the resolution of the images is used. This helps eliminate the appearance of jagged or uneven lines along the edges of objects and is best for printing standard text and graphics.


A dither pattern that gives priority to the appearance of smooth changes in tone is used. This is best for reproducing images with delicate gradations or changes of tone.

[Error Diffusion]

This mode is suitable for printing data with text and thin lines and the curved lines of CAD data, etc.
The stability of the texture and fixed toner may be reduced when this mode is used.
