I'm running a Mac mini 1.42Ghz G4, 512MB ram, and OSX 10.4.10
My printer is a EPSON Stylus Photo R200.

OSX had a basic driver for this printer, and I could have sworn I downloaded the lastest driver from EPSON, but my problem is, everytime I print, the printer seems to print in fast "normal" mode.
All my prints are in crap quality, and I can't find anywhere to change the quality settings
(system prefs > print&fax > printing > Stylus Photo R200 driver 2.02)
Maybe I'm missing something, I'm new to printing on a Mac, is this more an OSX thing? or the Printer Drivers themselves?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

GAH! Ok, nevermind, I found it. I downloaded the Guten Print drivers and then realized it was the button below Printer Presets on the print dialogue box. I didn't realize that there was a printer features option under the "copies and pages" pulldown list. It's still very confusing but anyways... Knowing is half the Battle!
