Printer Demos vs. The Real Thing

    I'm working with an Oki C5400n here, and I don't understand how some
    prints look extremely good (especially with the built-in demo picture,
    of course), but the pictures I send at very high resolutions (3" by 5"
    at 600+ dpi) still look grainy.

    Is there some "magic" resolution that lets the printer print non-grainy
    pictures?
    Is it printing the demo picture with a different, hidden printer? :)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    In the print driver are you setting the quality setting to best?

    And along the same lines, is the paper type set correctly?
