Unlike printing in Draft mode, InkSaver lets you reduce the ink you’re using while still printing at a high resolution. A printer typically uses bigger dots and prints at a lower dpi (dots per inch) resolution when printing in Draft mode. With InkSaver, you can print at your inkjet’s highest dpi resolution, using small dots – and because it intelligently reduces the amount of ink laid down on the page, it can reduce ink consumption without noticeably impacting print quality.
I must add I'm no expert in the way inkjet printers work .. so could be totally wrong .. I'm just not convinced it's possible to adjust drop "size" from a given dimension of print head .. drop "frequency" is a different matter, but that would be DPI
Does printing pdf use less ink than other files like jpeg and bitmap ?
I think pdf files use less ink, though I am not certain of it. I know that they take up less space which allows them to be sent quicker as attachments when emailing. So pdf's should print with less ink. If everything could be changed to pdf's then that would be the answer. Is there a way to convert everything to pdf ?.
