Printing max dpi from a mac

HP Recommended
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Hello! I have an HP OfficeJet Pro 8715 that should print up to a 4800 by 1200 dpi. How do I access the setting on my computer to print at that dpi. The only option I see is 'Best'.  Thanks!

Hi,

Use HP Photo Paper and set the quality to Best and select Max DPI to reach the best print resolution while printing.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have HP photo paper on the ‘best’ setting. Can you provide steps on how to select max DPI on Mac?
