Printer Resolution - Photography

Hey, What exactly do the number mean? My printer (canon s530d) will do 2400x1200, or 1200x1200 if i print from my camera. Does this mean i can set the DPI of an image to 2400? That does sound right. Mark....

    Printer resolution and image resolution are 2 different things. 2400x1200
    printer dpi means that it will lay down 2400 drops per inch in one direction
    and 1200 drops per inch in the other direction, regardless of whether the
    image is 100dpi or 300. That being said, an image with more than 300dpi
    resolution is overkill - you won't see a difference.
    Good rule of thumb is to have minimum of 200 dpi for the image size you're
    printing. So if you're printing a 8x10, the image needs to be a minimum of
    1600x2000.

    Then why does my printer( Epson 870) have a 1440 dpi setting ?

    30 is a little extreme - I would say more like 300.

    LOL, Yes, you'll definitely see a difference beyond 30ppi. 300 is what my
    brain wanted, 30 is what my fingers typed.
