"1. Printers output is in DPI. Each printer has fixed choices for DPI, For example epsons have 360, 720, 1440 and 2880 DPI settings."

I let the printer extrapolate to its preferred DPI settings, if such a thing exists. That's just my practical impression/satisfaction/it's good enough for me after years of printing. But if what you say is so, wouldn't it be impossible to specify DPI before printing anyway, as the graphics program is designating pixels, not dots?????

I think the questionable statement is "At 300 dpi, that will require about a 14 MB RGB file size in Photoshop."

That would be 300 ppi, it is an input resolution, not an output (on paper) resolution. It adds further to the confusion.
